Every Step

Hi Folks,
They say every step forward is a step towards the goal, a.k.a. progress. In that case this past week was fun and we made progress. You’ve got to love it when it works.


The weather has been hot, and I don’t do well in the heat, but there were lots of bright spots. For example, on our way to the city the other day we spotted a whale in the harbour. He was quite far away and all we had for a camera was my phone. Charis kept her eyes on the area where he was and clicked away, but we’re not certain if we got that camera shy guy’s picture or not. It’s just a black spot, can you find it?

On the other hand, we made good progress on the studio extension. We got the rest of the siding on and the painting started. Now we’re just waiting for the electrician. Once he’s done his thing we can finish it and press it into service. (K has already ordered more equipment)

Ah yes, ROW80.

It wasn’t a complete loss here either. I will confess that, in the heat, I just nap and do little else. In spite of that early morning writing has given me another four thousand words. The best part? There’s no end in sight yet. You see, I love telling the story. Once it’s finished then I have to come back to Earth for a while until the next story carries me off on another adventure. I have such a hard life. Tee hee
So, that’s it for me this week folks, what have you all been up to? Drop me a line, I love to hear from you.

    Who couldn't write a masterpiece in that dear little lilac cottage? You now have officially no excuse for not producing. Totally scrummy!

    The studio is gorgeous! What a wonderful work area for Katherine. Jealous, especially of the color. Right with you on the heat, but at least the words came in when you wanted them to. Have a great week, Pru. *smile*

    Love the purple siding on the studio! I've been getting back into new writing too, though of course not as quickly as I'd like. Keep cool and have a great week!

    Shame its not yours – I would love to have it to dream and type away in – ah well you have your fav spot. I imagined the whale with all it's sleakness – great photo:)

    I agree it is a hard life -writer or reader we send all our life saying goodbye to friends:)

    keep smiling:)

    I so love seeing whales. I couldn't spot the one in your photo, but I have had several whale watching excursions that were tons of fun and full of whale activity. I even got to see two whales mating one time, whale penis and all. There's something you don't see every day.

    The little purple studio is absolutely darling. I just know you're going to accomplish lots in that little hide away.

    Happy writing!

    Boy, that is really PURPLE. Love it!!! And oh do I get the whole hanging out with friends thing. I'm currently editing my next book and so enjoying it. Like a family reunion, without the potato salad.

    Wow, the studio is coming along. You're almost finished. It looks great! Bummer on the camera Pru. I don't see the whale. lol. But I have seen them up close before. They are awesome to watch. And even with the heat, 4,000 words. Not bad at all. 🙂
