Second-Serving Sunday (On Monday): Time Traveler’s Edition

A weekly peek backwards and a look ahead, in my little corner of the blogosphere

Time-traveling girl on a war horse…


Have you ever time traveled?

It’s definitely been a time-travel kind of week for me. It began with the news of two deaths, and much contemplation and remembrance of the treasures that remain after the passing of the lives that offered them. And then there was:

  • Traveling to the Globe Theatre on 29 June 1613, with characters who are contemplating traveling to the far-distant future, as I revise my fantasy novel, Chameleon’s Dish.
  • Traveling into the future, and, at the same time, Spock‘s past, while drafting my fan fiction duology novel of his childhood, Perchance to Dream.
  • A Stream-of-Consciousness Saturday post with the theme ‘time’…
  • And then, at week’s end, a visit to the Sterling Renaissance Festival, to explore a fanciful, somewhat anachronistic sojourn into Europe’s past, and my own, as I got the chance to reconnect with a friend I hadn’t seen since my wedding almost 17 years ago!

I’m tired – that was, after all, a LOT of time traveling for one week! I have new pictures on my camera; but I’m going to share images from the last time we attended the festival, five years ago, when the kids were much smaller people than they are today.

SoCS (Stream of Consciousness Saturday):

ROW80 Updates:

  • A Huge Stretch: In which I go way outside my comfort zone, in several ways – oh, and do some writing, too.
  • A Diffused Stretch: In which I allow deep feelings to be as they are, and writing, revising, and hometending ensue.
Ready to ride the Crow’s Nest!

What’s Next:

My focus for August and September is on revising my time-travel fantasy novel, Chameleon’s Dish, set in the 1612-13 London area. I’m also drafting another WIP, Perchance to Dream, a Star Trek: TOS/ Enterprise fanfiction novel,which is the second half of a duology, And then there’s the ever-present homeschool administration – ’tis the season for masses of reporting and testing requirements.

In the Wilds of Internet-Land:

T’Pol is not a fan of time travel, or smoking, either, for that matter. Doing things that the Vulcan Science Directorate has determined impossible makes her a little tense…

300 foot giant slide, and one happy slider!

Life Stuff:

  • More writing and revising, more homeschool testing, even more decluttering and hometending…and some important conversations.
  • Annalise and I went to a diner late at night- something she’s been wanting to do for a long time. It was delightful!
  • I completed my blogpost for the World Sexual Health Day writing contest, hung out with an old friend, got a great workout, and time-traveled.

What’s been going on with you lately? Got any plans for the coming week?

Compunded loveliness! =)


  1. I featured Mat Honan’s article on liking everything on Facebook this morning. Did you read the comments? They were all about, “hey, let’s do that this weekend!” I saw it after they had finished, but I think we ought to organize another one…

    • I didn’t read the comments. I’ve been doing it, in a modified fashion; I’m not big on prohibitions or absolutes, and sometimes a like is all I have to say.

      I would be interested in hearing how it goes if you do organize something, though!
