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.
May 4 question – It’s the best of times; it’s the worst of times. What are your writer highs (the good times)? And what are your writer lows (the crappy times)?
My writing highs overtake me when my writing flows. I love the feeling when all the pieces click into place, and the words become the most natural thing in the world. Those experiences will leave me excited, a smile glued to my face.
My writing lows come from opposite experience. Being stuck, not knowing what comes next, or pulling at the threads of my story and being completely unable to weave them together. It sucks, but I refuse to think about it now. I’m been deep in highs lately, so … I now transition to the news. 😉
My first story involves cake and a heart-warming gesture. Enjoy both!
