Cold Weather Woman

Hi folks,

There’s not a lot going on to tell you about this time. It’s been so damned hot and muggy I actually celebrated when it rained for an hour or two yesterday. Sigh. The truth is, I’m a cold weather woman. My favorite time of year is autumn. I love the colors, warm sweaters and a chill in the air. Sweltering heat with 90% humidity…not so much.

So, with little else but to sit and sweat, I’ve been reading a lot as well as puttering away at a new story. What’s that? You want a peek? Okay, here’s a peek into the story.

Melanie sat on her motorcycle, staring at the passing waves as the ferry boat carried her across the short stretch of water to the island where she had grown up. It had been so long ago. At length she took out her notebook and pen.

The endless sea
Washes away the past
Forgiving all sins”

Melanie re-read what she’d written then closed the book and returned it to the pocket of her leather jacket. “Let’s hope so.” The boat was approaching the dock, time to go, to face the music. She pulled on her helmet and started the engine as the ramp touched the dock.

That’s all you get for now. Tee Hee. Once we get Blue Rider published in September I’ll get to work on that story.. if you think it’s worth pursuing.


ROW80 Check-in

As I confessed above, I’ve been reading and puttering away at a new story. It’s an action adventure romance sort of thing. I did manage to get six thousand words written on it.

I’m still waiting for Blue Rider to come back from the editor, again. Hate to admit it, but I made a mess of that one. However, that’s why we have editors and that’s why we do re-writes. You folks don’t get to see the batter or the mess on the kitchen counter, just the cake fresh from the oven. 🙂

Well, that’s it for me this time. I hope you’re all on top of the world and loving life. May your days be blessed.

Bright Blessings
Pru

    Also I meant to add that I'm also a cold weather woman! I love autumn, especially around the time of halloween when everything has cooled down, lost it's blooms and is feeling a little spooky!

    Awesome work on a new piece! Loved the excerpt! Editing is what it is, something we hate but love at the same time.

    I'm a fellow fan of autumn. I love the colors, the pumpkins, the crisp, clear air. It's the season of magic, I believe. 🙂

    Happy writing, Prudence! Have a great week and good luck with your ROW80 goals.

    I'm with you Prudence. I love fall and winter, sweater weather. I just got back from five weeks in Phoenix. The heat was horrendous. Soo happy to reside along the coast. But it's the end of July which means we have similar weather to yours. Although we do have a wonderful ocean breeze come late afternoon and evening. That is our saving grace. Best wishes with the edits Pru. May the force be with you! 🙂
