Friday Ramblings From An Author-Three Day Weekend



I can’t believe that todays’ the last one of August. For some reason, the summer seems to have flown by. I’m a warm weather type of person although I do enjoy fall with the cooler temps and the change in colors.

Speaking of fall…who’s going to take part in this year’s NaNoWriMo? If you need some guidance and inspiration (shameless promo about to happen), I’m teaching a class on the topic for Outreach International and it starts on Tuesday. Classes are tough to fill right after summer and I’d hate to see this one canceled so if you know anyone who’s interested, here’s the link

The summer writing challenge I set for myself draws to a close tomorrow. No, I didn’t get the mystery finished, but I did jumpstart the project which is half the battle. I’ve now set the end of the year as my deadline for completion of the first draft.

How about you, did you set yourself a writing challenge this summer?

It’s a holiday weekend for everyone in the US and I’m going to enjoy some time off to recharge ready for more teaching, coaching, writing, you name it. No, Monday Motivation post next week but on Tuesday, we’ll have the first of the guest bloggers…some great topics to look forward to. All the spots are now full but I’ll be posting another sign up link for November and December around the middle of October.

Have a good holiday, fun week, and happy writing to all.
