Welcome to my sanctuary. I hope your week has been good so far. As I type this, I’m up early. (I have to do any online work early, because my Internet starts going bad at 9 AM.) I can see the tiny birds outside my window. Soon the pigeons will almost crowd them away, but for now they have the water bowl to themselves. I’m more interested in the birds than Crystal is. She’d happily bathing while watching a video of a groundhog eating a carrot.
Like many people, COVID-19 “stuff” has made it almost impossible for me to focus on anything, including my stories. I know most writers have complained of that. So, what to do for my midweek post? I feel the need to be secretive, but I decided to share some random images of things that are in the story. This (below) is the mental image that actually started my novel in progress. Seriously, it is. I’ve told you I’m not wired right…
Everything I do seems to either bring out trolls (whom I delete) or thieves. (Seriously? If anyone thinks it’s a “joke” to say they plan to “steal” something… Well, if someone can joke about integrity, I have to believe they haven’t any.) Still, it’s really hard for me to not share about my novel in progress — particularly since that sharing is what encourages me most!
Maybe that’s why I’m so far behind on it. It’s already summer, and I hoped to be finished with the writing by now. Instead I’m barely halfway through the telling.
Wikipedia altered image. Thanks to GP Cox for telling me about the “Kawanishi N1K2 Japanese fighter planes in WWII. Yes, this is another clue.
Here’s something else for you to ponder. Yes, a couple of clues there.
Don’t forget this little guy, who wandered into the story unexpectedly.
Is this mishmash of images confusing? Maybe this is a disjointed stroll through the windmills of my mind, but thanks for joining me. Be well, be happy. Hugs on the wing!
This post is made possible in spite of (not because of) the deplorable lack of Internet service from TDS Telecom. They are even worse than the government about claiming no problem exists in the face of failure. TDS Telecom meets every complaint and service call by saying they find no problem. Their technicians come to my home and refuse to do any work or replace equipment, even when their offsite managers have instructed them to do so. They brought equipment that they openly state does not work properly. My letters, emails, and tweets go unanswered. Dear readers, please do not comment here in response to this paragraph. Just be aware of my awful experience with this so called provider.
