Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Wednesday. I did. This morning I enjoyed an early morning run and caught a great pic of the sun rising. Sunrises and sets are great starts to any day, kind of like silly news stories. 😉
My first story today involves an emu. I don’t know if you caught the viral videos of the other emu going around, but mischief is apparently part and parcel. The one in my story dodges cop cars.
July’s optional question is—If you could live in any book world, which one would you choose?
This is so tough because I love so many book worlds. But if I have to choose one today, it would be the science fantasy/horror world conceived by Seanan McGuire in Middlegame. It wouldn’t be easy to step into its pages, but getting to be a firsthand observer to the world-changing alchemy that rewrites time itself would be amazing. So amazing I wouldn’t even miss the news, but alas …😉
This first story features a bird which helped a kangaroo escape, and it wasn’t even an Australian bird.
Happy Wednesday! It’s the last week of June. If you haven’t already enjoyed a little vacation time this summer, I hope it’s on the horizon. I’m currently in the middle of mine, and I’m loving it. Since I can’t share the actual time off with you, how about a little news?
This first story features a fast-thinking custodian. I’m glad the mountain lion is getting his tooth fixed before they set him loose.
Happy Wednesday once again. We’re closing in on July, and I’m prepping for a week off work, so it’s a pretty good Wednesday in my book. If you aren’t already looking forward, I hope something happens to make it so. Until then, news.
This is the second year in a row of the Josh gathering. Hundreds of boys named Josh got together armed only with pool noodles and a desire to socialize while raising money for a good cause. Pretty cool.
Today’s science link is a heads up for any astronomy buffs out there. We are up for a five-planet lineup pre-dawn for the rest of June. Break out your telescopes along with a cup of your favorite coffee.
June 1st question – When the going gets tough writing the story, how do you keep yourself writing to the end? If have not started the writing yet, why do you think that is and what do you think could help you find your groove and start?
When the going gets tough, I throw every strategy at the virtual wall until something sticks. I’ll take a break before restarting, butt in chair every day at the same time, read some books in my genre, and/or other crazy ideas that present themselves as answers. I will do every possible thing to shake the words loose because once an idea is stuck in my head, I can’t stop. Writing is so weird.
Hello boys and girls! Another Wednesday has come, and nearly gone, and it’s yet another hot one in my neck of the woods. We have our hottest day this week tomorrow and then we have snow in the forecast Friday. Weird forecast for yet another weird 2022 week. All I can do is shake my head as I peruse headlines.
For your news sampling this week, if Houdini were a dog and a snuggler.
