Happy Tuesday to you! I’m not going to put the date because I never know which week I’ll post this. Such is life. I’ve been busy, and busy means priorities, and as much as I hate to say this, this blog is not a high priority for me right now….and I’m sure it isn’t for you, either. So thank you for even being here and supporting me.
We continue to plug along in the construction of our new aviary. We’re waiting for our order for netting to come in so we can enclose the new bird space. Once that happens all I’ll have left to make is a door and then we can add the birds. We’ll have quail of course. Bev wants to add some finches, and I’m thinking a couple doves would be nice. All are compatible, which is important of course.
It would be nice if we were done but we just have to be patient and make sure it is built as strong and safe as possible.
And I continue to work on the new novel, “Shadows Over Innocence,” while I send queries out for the last novel, “Shadows Kill.” It’s all part of the process and again, it would be nice if I was done with it and success would arrive, but I just have to keep plugging along and do things correctly.
And that leads me to the quote of the day.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
THOUGHT OF THE DAY
We live in a convenience world. I’m not immune. There are some things I want right now. I readily admit to using the microwave oven much more than I should. When I’m hungry I want to eat, dammit, and I don’t want to waste time cooking.
But there are some things in life you simply cannot have quickly, and achieving success in writing is one of those things. Pack your bags and embark on the road of writing, but pack for a long journey. One step in front of the other will bring you success, but if you are looking for a timetable, forget about it!
PROMPT OF THE DAY
A visual prompt for you today. We visited a farm this weekend and I thought I’d share a picture from that visit and maybe it will awaken your muse.
CONTEST OF THE DAY
Writer of the Future has free science fiction short story contest going on. Read about it here. Did I mention it’s free?
JOB LISTING OF THE DAY
I thought I’d mention this in case you are a gardener and want to make some spare cash writing about gardening. Follow this link and maybe you’ll get hired. $75 per article ain’t that bad.
TIP OF THE DAY
Reach out to a writer today. A kind word is all it takes. I promise you that it will return to you.
You know how it is. We’re all busy. I don’t have time to do this blog on a regular basis and I know you don’t have time to read it, although you are always incredibly loyal. Have a great week and I’ll see you down the road.
