Celebrations September 19, 2014

Today is the Celebrations blog hop by VikLit .  Come join us: the information is below. 

I am a little late to this dance, since I have been running around getting ready to head to my mother's place this weekend.  In addition to enjoying seeing her,

I have some urgent business with her: she is updating her Living Will form.  My father, t
Such a pity uniforms aren't so decorative now
wenty years before his death, drew one up for each of them.  The players have changed, and hers must be updated.  That is important, and I have that form for myself, as well.


But, going along with that, I am celebrating a week finished, a newsletter sent out (my website has one, and some nice folks have honored me by asking to be on the mailing list).  A revelation on a plot part - you writers know how it is: Something that happens in the story, that is important and has some far-reaching repercussions - and a light suddenly goes on for something that will set matters up beautifully for that event in the story.

...AND I get to write it this weekend!

I will also be going to some antiques/flea markets with Mom, who loves them, we'll sip some very nice red wine, and I'll be visiting my old haunts.

...And now for some eye candy (at least for me) that is very much like one of my characters eighteen years before the start of the story.

What are you celebrating?

  1. Good luck with your writing, and I hope you enjoy spending quality time with your mom. Updating a living will may not be the most pleasant business, but it's an important thing to do.

  4. A good way to balance a not-so-fun-but-necessary task with some red-letter life moments. Enjoy your old haunts!

  5. Hi, Diana.
    If you are getting some writing done, you are way ahead of me. don't know what happened-perhaps easier access to the Internet on the new computer watching You Tube Funny Kitties too distracting...must stop that.
    Glad you had a wonderful weekend - even "down here" there's already a nip in the morning air.
    Will follow your progress with great interest.
