Spent a lot of time working on the Scavenger Hunt today, and then started writing a new Tysche story to submit to an anthology call. The deadline is Friday though, so I may not make it in time. If not, I’ll have another Tysche story to send to Mocha Memoirs. 🙂

Still not 100%, but feeling a lot better. We got out of the house and went to Kerbey Lane for dinner tonight, which was the first time Newell had been out of the house in a week, I think. Luckily yesterday’s winds had blown away all the bad weather that we had been warned about, and it was a beautiful day.

I’ve become almost obsessive about checking my emails for submission results. At this point I don’t care if it is an acceptance or a rejection, I just want to know what is going on!

That’s one reason to write more to send out, isn’t it?

Does anyone else watch Face Off? Are you as glad as I am that Autumn finally went home?


Let’s see if I can’t get you a poem tonight:

Rainy Day


Rainy Day

The rain pours down
in miniature fountains,
splashing on the sill
in a merry dance.
Its song is a rushing
symphony punctuated
by bass drum notes of
can or car.
The sweeping blades of
the windshield wipers
conduct the music as
we drive,
components to the song.




Today I cleaned ― not really anything…except a little off the DvR

Today I weighed ― 184.3

Today I wrote/revised ― Scavenger Hunt stuff, started new story.
