It is now September. One more day of hot weather. I drained the pool today. There are tomatoes needing canning. I'm starting blogging again today. I took two months off to enjoy the summer and spend more time with my granddaughter. I did just that. Now it's time to regularly post my ever inspiring thoughts and ... whatever. Okay, so my not so inspiring thoughts. I hope you enjoy and maybe learn a little bit from what I post here.
I set some goals for these past few weeks. Write two devotions a week. Clean up the files on my computer. Play with my granddaughter a lot. Well, one out of three isn't too bad is it? Guess which one got accomplished.
This summer had it's ups and downs. Mostly ups and the downs were minor. I put up a 12 foot round pool this summer. Sweetie and I played in the pool a good number of times. The summer was cool but we had fun. I overflowed it three times when I was refilling it. I really should set the timer when I turn on the hose.
So now with September here and November only two months away I'm going to be focusing more on my writing. I plan to do NANOWRIMO again this year. The third book in the Stones Creek series will be my project. It will be the story of Chloe, Noah Preston's sister who was kidnapped from her family when the bandits attacked and Noah's father did nothing to protect his wife and daughter. There is no title yet but I'm developing the new characters and figuring out what is happening in Stones Creek in the summer of 1868 shortly after Chasing Norie ended. I'm hoping to have this novel ready by next spring. With the planning I'm doing now and at least 50,000 words written in November that should be doable.
