Summer, is our beach time, cookouts, fireworks and baseball games and most of all, for the majority of us, Vacation Time. What a shame, it is all coming to an end. Why is it that winter seems to last forever and summer is always over in the blink of an eye?
Now that my favorite season is coming to an end, I need to get back on track with my writing and blogging. Of course, this will be in-between the time with the newest member of our family.
Meet Keelaa – our puppy!
She will be my writing mascot, there to make sure the fingers are working on the keyboard, or not :p
Keelaa is as sweet as she looks. At ten weeks, she weighs no more than 8 pounds. Her mom weighs in at about 20 pounds and we couldn’t find out what kind of dog her dad was. This doesn’t matter to us anyway. We love mixed breeds, plain and simple.
The cats don’t like her much. They keep trying to plot ways to get her into trouble, but they all keep backfiring as the cats or cat keeps getting caught in the act. Gracie is the brain behind all the scheming.
So in-between all the conflict with a puppy and a couple of cats is my writing time.
By the way, our older pup, Julie, who is going on 14 years this coming season, adores Keelaa. In fact, the two of them are best buddies.
My goal for the coming season is to write every day, no matter whether it be a blog or my work in progress. If I can write a minimum of 500 words a day, I feel I will be on the right track.
Two works are going at this time. One of which I can tell you about. That would be my Sleeping on the Beach. I started to use Wattpad for the story, but it wasn’t working out for me. I find the site sort of odd to use. So, I’ve moved back to Authonomy since they have revamped the site. Hopefully, I will be able to attract some critiquing and maybe some brainstorming for this work in progress.

How has your summer been? Did you do any sleeping on the beach like Andrea? Hopefully, you weren’t sleepwalking as she was. I hear PTSD can do that to you.
Tell me about your work in progress – or did you recently publish? I’d love to hear about it.
