Puddle Melt


I've worked so long and so hard the past couple days that I just don't think I can form a complete sentence with any wit or even coherency, so it's time to borrow...

Welcome to the Weekend & how was your Week?

16 Comments

  1. Hola and good morning!

    My work week was busy (I'm covering 2 teams now until we hire someone), but quite good.

    In the writing life: Blood Bargain is off to my editor and the essay for sekrit project is done and off to that editor. (I'll hear if it's in the book by mid-May).

    This weekend is the first in say, five years, where I have no writing deadlines looming, no social obligations, no work obligations.

    I plan to take a mini-vacation at home and catch up on reading.

    Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!


  2. Maria,

    Good morning! I'm so glad you have a break today. Enjoy it!! And congrats on getting your projects off to your editor. That's great.

    I'm off to some meetings. See everyone later. :)


  3. My week was a touch hellish because the real world insists on intruding in my creative world. But I've made good progress in my writing so far this weekend, so that kind of consolation makes up for the rest of it.


  4. Hi (waves as he passes through). Life's getting a little less crazy which means it's time to catch up on all the stuff that didn't get done while it was nuts. Off to do some of that now.


  5. Hey Paul & Kelly,

    Hang in there!

    These ebbs and flows of real life intruding on the creative life are here to make us appreciate how lucky we are to have the writing time when we do. I know things will get better. :)


  6. Happy Sunday, folks! Week has been crazy, driving cross country, looking for a new home. Taking today off to see friends in Denver, then back at it tomorrow. Hopefully by this time next week I'll have a place to live, and will be in Idaho with friends, arranging to have my stuff moved back to CO. Writing? Writing? Egads. Considering WRW is mere weeks away, I'm panicking a little at my lack of productivity. Hopefully in a week or two I'll have time to write...

    Til then, take care, everyone!


  7. Oh, and congrats, maria and paul, hallo Kelly, and I hope your brain is less mushy, Kimber!


  8. Beth,

    I didn't even know you were moving! I can't wait to see you in a few weeks to get the full skinny on your life. :)


  9. We have LOTS of catching up to do, Kimber! And I have huckleberry riesling on my packing list, just for you. See you on the 23rd...if I'm still sane by then.


  10. Beth,

    Yahoo, regarding the huckleberry wine at WRW. Hopefully it'll arrive in one piece with you. ;)

    My friend, author Kim Lenox, is going to a huckleberry farm on Tuesday as part of a trip with her children's grade school, but, so far as I know, the kindergartners will not be having any wine while there.


  11. The weekend has been productive in terms of writing. I managed to bring forth more than 3000 words (a big deal for me), and I'm making good progress on the final chapters of the novel.

    Also, I planted 25 buttonbush shrubs today.


  12. Mmmm! Huckleberry riesling. That sounds good.

    And yes, that's right. I'll be at the farm this week with a bunch of kindergartners. And Kim, I double checked. It's a DEWBERRY farm. :P


  13. Paul,

    Congratulations. 3,000 words is a big day for most people! Great job. :)


  14. Kim,

    LOL. I was so excited that I finally knew what a huckleberry, now a berry's got me stumped again. Shuffling off to google dewberries.


  15. BERRY LOW-DOWN...

    Huckleberries - resemble blueberries (and are, in some places, called blue berries when they are blue). They are the state fruit of Idaho. (Who knew?!)

    Dewberries - closely resemble blackberries.


  16. And they actually are wild blueberries, Kimber. But they're smaller, tarter, much purpler, and WAY better!!
