Put the wonderful words "The End" on another novella tonight at writing group! This one had been sitting for a while in the novel folder and I finally finished things off during my writing group meeting tonight AND I have someone editing my Camp Nano project for me for a first round edit:) Very excited!

Happy Memorial Day everyone:)

I am hoping to do a lot of reading and some writing today because I do not think we are going to be going to any cookouts. I am also hoping to hit the gym with my Mom later in the day then possibly upgrading my cell phone because my current one is just on its way out. Have a great day!!

I'm so sorry your new job didn't work out. I thought I'd be working by now :( I'm starting to get stressed and a bit nuts about it, tbh.
Congrats on getting back to your writers group! I am *so* grateful to have people both locally and online to help me on the writers path. So I very much know how you feel!!

Hi Everyone!

So I have some good news and not so good news:) The good news is that I was able to return to my writer's group last night! I was so excited because I missed them so much:) On the flip side the reason was because my new job just did not work out. It is a lot to get into but it was just not a good fit. I was just happy to get a chance to be with fellow writers last night, it made me feel great. I even went old school and grabbed my pen and paper vs. my computer so it was great. How is everyone else doing today?

There's nothing like the high you get seeing your books release!

Wow! Today is my BEST DAY EVER.

First, I lost a pound this week despite eating out for 5 times for dinner or lunch due to my crazy schedule AND putting in 7 hours of overtime at work (a sit-on-my-butt desk job).

THEN, best of all, eReader News Today featured The Calico Heart (the book I co-wrote with author Patricia Kiyono) on their site yesterday and our Amazon rank went from being ranked 572,246 in Kindle paid sales to being ranked 1,213 overall in Kindle paid sales and #68 Kindle eBooks/women's fiction/romance. I am super, super excited.

Big, big smiles! emoticon

Today is going to be a pretty hard day. A writer I've known for years, Kay Rogal passed in February. Because she was killed in a car accident, her death was sudden and unexpected. A group of authors have gotten together to honor her memory today.

If you're son inclined, please have a look at her titles and her memorial page.

Good Morning Writers!

Sounds like everyone is busy and getting where they want to go. That's wonderful!

I posted a new garden blog about my friend Lenora's Longlips Farm - named for goats. It's a photo journal - I took 30 photos while I was there including one of a goose down by her lake laying eggs! Whew, the wind was so strong that day it nearly knocked us over. If you have a few minutes and want to see how a REAL gardener gardens, check out newgardenerblues.wordpress.com

I'll be highlighting Lenora's garden along with several others as I move forward with my first retirement project!

Today it's raining - maybe spring has finally arrived!

Have a great day!

Woot! Congrats. It's great to hit targets.

My husband is out of town with my four year old. It's a 2000 word a day kind of week. Plus down time to brainstorm. Oh, the joy!

I was so motivated today. I hit all my targets that I wanted to hit AND I just got back from writing group where I edited a chapter of one story and wrote the first chapter in my Camp Nano novella in under an hour. I call today a win!

Good morning - My husband starts his night run, which means I get to write all night without him complaining that I'm keeping him awake. I'm at al lull with taxes, all of the ones I have I am waiting for more info from the tax payer. So the puppy and I went outside for a romp. He just recently figured out what his legs are for, so he really enjoy7s a good run outside. I'm trying to teach him to come when he is called, and not just take off for parts unknown. He's doing okay considering he's 8 weeks old.

the pump[kin, kale butter is gone. I made peach jam without any sweeteners over the weekend, and then my daughter made a bath of homemade candy (4-H) project so calories went bust over the weekend.

But today is another day.

Good Morning everyone,
I am designating today as "BOOK WRITING DAY" and am holding a writing marathon to see how much I can get written of my new book: Town of Paris Twins- Book 2. Not sure of the name yet. Possibly, "On Academy Street."

Gotta go and get writing. Be back later to let you know of my progress! Can't wait to get started!

Good Morning Writers!

Thanks to all who came out to post on the March Challenge. We need one more person to make our 20.

Today I'm having lunch with retired friends from my old employer, then interviewing my gardening mentor about getting her four acre garden ready for spring. Look for the story at my Blog (linked below) sometime tomorrow!

Good Morning Writers!

If you haven't done so already, don't forget to post in the March Challenge thread!!

Sadly, my lovely grandson's car was a bust and came in 4th or 3rd in every single heat. Too heavy? Not heavy enough? A wheel that was on crooked. No matter. We'll blame his grandpa (my DH) for the whole thing. To see my DH apologizing to this 7 year old - oh my! Along with the grandfatherly and fatherly discussions of what went wrong and why.

Today we're gardening. We're supposed to get three days of rain Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday - at least it isn't snow!!

Have a wonderful day!

The sun is actually shining this morning. But is it warm? Not yet? Maybe later. Today, we're going to my grandson's pinewood derby race. Since my DH made the car, I hope it's a beauty and wins him a prize!!

Have a wonderful day!

Good Morning Writers!

Still cold here this morning - we had a few minutes of very scary weather yesterday afternoon: rain, hail, and continuous thunder. It shot out of here and then it got cold!

Marcy - kale jelly? Oh my! I'm not sure I could do that. I think any leftover kale or lettuce after the season will go on the compost pile. I'll have to check out Pinterest for other ideas - and you get super kudos from me for experimentation!

Today I'm just hanging out, trying to get things ready indoors for spring. Where is spring?

Have a great day all!

Morning all - I woke up to a freezing rain. It has warmed up now to just rain, but it was a shock when my cat flew off the porch on his way out the door this morning.

I'm waiting for a client to come get his taxes done.

Not much else going on. I started a wall hanging in cross stitch for our local 4-H that my daughter belongs to.

Stacy - I grew kale in my garden last year. When I picked it, I ended up with a wheel borrow full, so I froze it to be used during the winter. Well I still have a lot left, so I decided to try to make kale jelly or jam I guess out of it. I have a jam setting on my new bread machine, so I can experiment with small batches. Well the kale jelly turned out to be a horrible texture, although it tasted good. I used sweet cherries with it and ended up with cherry flavored grass. So instead of dumping it, like a sane person, I kept it. Mixed with non fat yogurt, which I also make, it actually is palatable. I thawed some pumpkin when my puppy had the runs, and needed to do something with the rest of what I didn't feed him. I have been experimenting with butters all summer; so I decided to make pumpkin butter, instead of sugar I used 1/2 of the kale jelly for sweetness in the pumpkin butter. The color was very off putting, but the taste was amazing. emoticon

We are still in the low 20's and the wind is horrible.
We are so proud - the puppy woke up from his nap and headed for the door, twice. I took him outside to play ball so he can get used to outdoors being both for potty and play.

Good Morning Writers!

Marcy and FITADMIN - you are both so right. Everyone needs an editor! Editing your own work is difficult. Editing other people's work can also be tricky - you have to be certain of your ground. I recall one senior vice president arguing with me on the use of "me" rather than "I" - I finally had to take her out to one of the .edu grammar sites to prove that I was right and she wasn't. Not one of my more politically correct moments...

Today we're promised more winds, falling temps, and dangerous thunderstorms maybe. So to Mother Nature for planning this spring - thanks.

And I'm off to the gym!

Have a good day all!

Stacy, KS

Stacy - I am horrible at editing my own stuff. It's because I know what I'm trying to say and brain thinks I did say it. That is one of the main reasons I write one day and then edit it the next before continue writing. Another pair of eyes is always a good thing.

My daughter had a med check up today. So we had a busy few hours.

MADEIT-You are so right. I think editing is not only more difficult but when you look at your own work it does not always become apparent where you can cut things out etc. That comes with a lot of practice and of course, having another set of eyes look at the work.

Good Morning Writers!

Marcy - good to see you here! It's understandable that you will be busy until April 15!

FITADMIN - editing is so different from creative writing - I know I'm not telling you anything you don't already know! I've always enjoyed editing, but then I'm the type of person to hang out on grammar Blogs...

Today we are promised warmer temps and high winds. I have a number of things to do, including get going on my new short story for next week's Writers Group. And I'm hoping by afternoon to get out in the garden!

Have a wonderful day, all. To those of you living in New England this morning - I'm so sorry winter is still beating at your doors!

I did not realize how long it's been since I chatted. Oops. I have been busy with tax returns and writing. My husband swears he can't sleep when I am up typing so I have been proving him wrong all week. Every night he goes to bed he says "you're not going to be out here typing are you?" I say " No, of course not" and then 10 minutes later I fire up the lap top. Not a stir from him.

He thinks I listen to him. After 25 years of marriage, he should no me better than that.

Have a great week everyone.

MADEIT, Thank you. I am hopeful that something will work out soon:)

On another note, I am going to my second writing group meeting tonight and I am excited! This is going to be a great weekly thing for me and I think it will help me as a writer. I also submitted an application to be a volunteer Reading Editor for a local organization. I would basically get a packet of submissions for their yearly publication 4 times a year and it will be my job (and another editor) to choose (or at least help choose) what submissions from poems to short stories and other literary pieces will be included. It would be a great opportunity and I would love to be a part of it.

Only 2 more weeks until the gym opens! I cannot wait to exercise with my Mom:)

Good Morning Writers!

FITADMIN - good for you. Balance is so important to this journey. I'll be cheering you on!

Today we're having yet another snow event. I know this isn't unusual for folks living north of Kansas, but usually by the end of March we have trees in bud. Not this year. It's just plain cold.

Today is the day I submit to the DarkMarkets contest. I've worked on this story - had lovely feedback from a number of people - and really think it's finished. So, keep your fingers crossed for me. I should know sometime in early May how I did.

Now I'm looking for another contest and also looking at Wattpad. Team member JESPAH has been having great success on Wattpad - I've been following her there.

Have a great day!

Hi Everyone!

Not a bad day in the slightest. Went out with Dad this morning and have been reading and just relaxing today. It has been nice to do nothing after the last week or so. I am hoping to finish a book today and get some writing done.

Good Morning Writers!

Seems like it was a busy Friday for everyone! I'm working on the final draft of my DarkMarkets story. Getting my new "old" camera today - buying one of my photographer son's old cameras from him. And a new PC for my DH. Now if only I can persuade him to "upgrade his skills" to 8.1!

Looks like we will have some snow showers today. Where is spring??

Have a great day all!

Flying in today, as I have a busy one in front of me. Finalizing my short story for DarkMarkets and working up a new Blog idea. I'm thinking about trying it out here on Spark first to see how/if it will fly with folks. I'll let you know.

Not sure what the weather is doing today - I would love to get some gardening done. Did a walk around yesterday and there's lots to do!! Still, we have snow predicted for tonight and tomorrow. We'll see what we get.

Have a great day!

Good Morning Writers!

And welcome to the first day of spring. Actually, it feels pretty cold every time I open the door to let the cat out or in. The dogs are outside chasing something but thankfully NOT parking since it's not yet 7am here. And we're waiting to see if we will have yet another "snow event" on Saturday.

Without whining, I have to write another gardening Blog today but have nothing to write about. How many times can I write "too cold to garden" when I want to be writing about germinating seeds. Ah, maybe I'll try starting broccoli from seed again - and fail yet a 5th time.

My goals for the day are to finish clean-up/catch-up from when the kids were here and get to writing the final draft of my short story for the DarkMarkets contest.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!!

Yes, I played with the puppy. He is such a joy. I did 2 circuits on the kettle bell dvd again today. It is getting easier, except for the "clean" where the kettle bell swings up and hits me in the back of the wrist. I am looking into something that I can put on to take the hit rather than my wrist all the time.

We are very windy today. The poor puppy loses his footing every time he goes outside, then he gets distracted by the blowing leaves and chases after them. Ah the joys of puppyhood.

SUEFROMRI - a plank for 90 seconds!! WooHoo!

It's still cold here - in the 30's - and windy. We expect it to be windy in March, but if I could have one calm day, I'd get my gardens raked and cleaned out of all the winter detritus.

The grand kids are going home today. We're packed and by the door while they play computer games downstairs. They are such good kids. It's been great having them. But now I have a ton of laundry to do - sheets, blankets, towels. And I have to get back to regular eating. While we didn't do fast food, we certainly did make concessions for them.

Blue Sky, but still chilly. (above freezing at 33 degrees) I can't be active outside yet with the pneumonia/bronchitis, but I'm breathing well enough to start some indoor movement.Yes, I missed it, while I was a couch potato.

The good news on coughing nonstop for two months, I went from my plank record being 61 seconds to (inset drum roll here) a full ninety seconds! I probably could have done a few more seconds, but the injuries from coughing (cracked rib, pulled muscles etc) are still healing.

Jarbritt,
You did play with the puppy, right? That's not 'getting nothing done'. That's relaxing and (gasp) exercising. emoticon

Cold and windy here! I'm waiting for it to be just a bit warmer, then the kids and I will head out to the lake - about a mile and a half walk. They are begging me for donuts and "Burger King." They got peanut butter on whole wheat, sprinkled with cinnamon to make it special.

They'll be here one more day and then back home to get ready to go back to school. I'd forgotten how loud a house can get!

Good day everyone. I got nothing done today because I was puppy sitting for my daughter while she was in school.

I did manage 2 circuits of the kettle bell dvd that I bought. Wow do I feel that one in my glutes and hamstrings.

We're getting warmer, but we have so much ice and snow yet to thaw that it looks like a later spring fro us this year.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to All!

Today, DH and I celebrate 22 years together!! We have three anniversaries during the year and this is the first and the best. He is the light of my life - excepting the kids and grand kids, of course! And it's wonderful to be retired and spending much more time with him.

Today it looks like it will get warmer, a good thing since the grand kids want to play outside. Right now, they're bundled up and looking for "pet" rocks in the way back.

Have a good day all!

Good Morning Writers!

I've sent you the link, IGNITEME!!

Here it is snowing AGAIN, which seems most definitely unfair and uncalled for. Yesterday, I put out my seedlings for hardening. Today, they would wither and die. We've gone from 77 to 30 in less than 24 hours.

And, the grandkids are arriving today for a three or four day visit. What to do with them this afternoon?? Guess we'll be stopping by the movie Red Box and later taking them downstairs to get fidgets out on the trampoline and treadmill.

Have a great day, all!

Stacy, KS

Good Morning Writers!

Marcy - good going on the DVDs!! I'm learning how to use all sorts of equipment at my new gym. I go to a class called "Silver Sneakers" and it is jammed with old people like me wanting to stay fit to the last! Some come in walkers, so there's dedication!!

Today it's supposed to be 70 and tomorrow evening we're going to have another snow "event." Please weather, or Mother Nature: make up your mind.

On the writing side of things, I found an interesting site that sends me a prompt every morning with instructions to write in a notebook with a pen. I love prompts since I think they get the creative juices flowing. If enough folks are interested, I'll post the link here.

Have a good day all!

I am feeling back in charge of my life today. I bought 4 new work out tapes. I did 2 of them this morning - Walk it off, Belly Blast and Core Kettle bells. I bought my kettle bell last August, but I was never really sure how to use it. I checked out a couple things on the internet, but I didn't feel like I using it either safely or properly. This video finally gave me what I have been looking for. I know I will feel it tomorrow, but today - I feel great. I always feel better when I work out first thing in the morning and that way I don't come up with an excuse NOT to do it later.

We got horrible rain followed immediately by a 30 degree temperature drop. I have a wonder frozen waterfall from my office to my driveway. My son was able o chip part of it away last night so that we can actually use our back door, but the ice remains in front of my office door. So I have been scurrying to intercept clients before they try to brake the ice.

Have a glorious Weekend everyone. I plan to. emoticon

FITADMIN - Congrats on your progress!

Today, we are waiting for our new stove to arrive. This is what can happen when you are a polite and persistent squeaky wheel!

I was able to write another short story tonight! I was hoping for something to spark my creativity and I was able to write it and it is titled "Beyond the Teacup". It came out so easy and I love when that happens. It is part of a larger project that I am working on for an e-book release later this year. Very excited to have this up and running again. I also put my Amazon author page live last night and I will post the link in the links page of the feed stream. Check it out if you would like. Happy writing everyone!

I wish your experience had been better elsewhere too, but I'm glad you're happy here. We care a lot, I think. (Maybe because we're all writers and we don't get enough support from the world in general?)

Thank you for sharing this thought; it's good to feel pride in the team.

I would like to say something to all the writers posting here:
I recently joined Spark People and joined a few groups within my interests. This is the only group that made me feel welcome.

thank you.

I am going to make the treadmill desk using the simplest, least expensive method.
I'm going to grab a pine shelf from work, Cut it to the size I want and sand it. I'll place it on the treadmill arms and mark the shelf. Then screw on 2 strips of trim, one each on the outside of the treadmill arm to hold it from sliding. Even if I have to buy the shelf board it will be under $20.
If needed, I can add a swinging arm to keep it from lifting up.
I own an antiques center, Maybe if I keep my eyes open I will find a vanity top that I can cut to the correct width. The curve in the top will make it easier to use.
