Sunday Update - Week 42

First off... GO BLUE!!  After years of heartache, the Wolverines are finally looking like they're going to go all the way.  Yay!  And let me give a quick nod, also, to Western Michigan University who are also kicking ass and taking names this year.  Keep it up, boys on both teams. 

Okay, now that that's out of the way...

After finishing up a read-through of the stuff I already had written on this book that I'm totally not talking about publicly, I got some new words out and some awesome ideas for later in the book.  If I can nurture this and keep it going so that it looks like it will definitely become a finished book, then I'll talk about it.  Right now, I have to protect it and my sanity, though.  Sorry if that's teasing, but if you want more books, it has to be that way. 

In other news, this newfound rejuvenation also seems to be sparking ideas for other unfinished books.  They will have to wait, though, until I finish this one.  I will not allow myself to be distracted by shiny ideas.  I think that's how I got myself into this mess in the first place.  Well, that and letting outside pressures influence my writing brain. 

In reading news, I finished Silver James' latest Blood & Fire.  Awesome with awesome sprinkles and a liberal helping of awesomesauce. 

In fishing news, I caught my first crappie this week.  It was a keeper at 11.5 inches.  I also caught my first smallmouth bass this week.  It was too small at around 9 inches.  I did a fish-fry.  Tastiest fish of that batch?  Redear sunfish. 

Yesterday, I saw a yellow-bellied sapsucker.  First one of the season.  I was wondering when they'd get back here.  Yay.

Since my back was screwed up pretty much Sunday - Thursday morning, I didn't get much else done.  But it's all better now.  I think I pinpointed the problem.  Carrying a heavy bag on my right shoulder.  Yep, that's all it took.  So, I won't be doing that again.  And for good measure, I cleaned out my purse so that won't exacerbate the problem.

What's up in your world?


  1. Girl, your purse is waaaaaaaaaaay too heavy if it threw your back out! ;-)

    Five wasp stings messed up my writing - and my leg! I look like I have leprosy. Still plodding along with nonfiction. Can't seem to concentrate on 5C at the moment. Itch, itch (no, fingers, you can't scratch it!)

  2. Deadlines. Trying not to get distracted and angry at the news. Deadlines. Stuff. Wishing for rain even though fall weather and touches of Indian Summer have arrived. We need the rain bad.

    Yay for fishing, birds, clean purse, and back to work! That's where I'm headed. Back to work...after a fresh cup of coffee.
