Second-Serving Sunday: Betwixt and Between Edition


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

I’ve been – busy.  No, that’s not the perfect word, but it’ll do.  Inspiration has led to action, and more inspiration, and more action, and…

I’m engaged in many things, and, maybe predictably, I don’t have a lot else to say…So, on to the good stuff! =D


Recently at shanjeniah:

Second-Serving Sunday: Inspiration Edition!

  • It was an inspiring week filled with ideas, explorations, and wonder…click on the links to take a peek into the past!

Coffee and Conversation:

WIPpet Wednesday:

SoCS (Stream of Consciousness Saturday):

  • First Things First? A prompt to use an ordinal number leads me on a ramble about prioritizing when all parts seem equal, birth order, and the changing season.

A Sprinkling of Seasonings: The bits of this and that I added to the mix!

ROW80 Updates:


What’s Next:

My fiction writing plans for the last days of September, and the beginning of October:

  • Continue revising my time-travel fantasy novel, Chameleon’s Dish (title subject to change), set in the 1612-13 London area.
  • Continue drafting Perchance to Dream, the Star Trek: TOS/ Enterprise fanfiction companion novel to my original fantasy, The Stars are Fire.
  • Complete character sketches and biographies, and begin plotting my NaNoWriMo project, The Earth Doth Move (title changed), another Star Trek: TOS/Enterprise crossover fan fiction which is the companion novel to my existing fantasy WIP, Blood and Breath, which I’m rereading and making pre-revision notations.
  • FutureLearn Shakespeare and His World: This is a free class that begins tomorrow! Bee Halton clued me in, and deserves HUGE thanks! It’ll be fun, and #itswritingresearch! =D
  • OctPoWriMo: 31 poems in 31 days! I’ll be writing a new poem each day, as well as revising the one I wrote on that date 2 years ago. Fun and poetic times await! =D
  • Unknown Worlds Review Continue revising 3 stories for submission here by October 31.

And on the blog:

  • For Coffee and Conversation, A special treat this week – my friend and fellow WIPpeteer, Amy Leibowitz, is having a Cover Reveal! Come learn more about her upcoming novel, Lower Education. We’ve got the cover, and we get to peek inside!
  • WIPpet Wednesday will host another excerpt from my Story a Day May exploration, The IDIC Romance I’ll be picking up where I left off last week, with Kroykah?, the fourteenth installment of “Tigress T’Pol”. Will Trip‘s efforts to slow down T’Pol’s amorous onslaught save her from her primal instincts, before they reach the point of no return?
  • Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), I’ll be writing a stream-of-consciousness post on the weekly prompt.
  • ROW80 Updates: It’s a break for A Round of Words in 80 Days. I’ll be doing an evaluation of my yearly goals, and then relaxing until Round 4 begins on October 6.

In the Wilds of Internet-Land:

  • And because I can’t get enough of these two…

Life Stuff:

  • Lots of hometending, yardtending, and getting ready for winter.
  • And relaxing while I wrap up some things and move others forward, during the ROW80 break.
  • Apple picking and enjoying the fall weather.

So, what have you been up to this week? Any exciting fall plans for next week? I’d love to hear about it!

Trip-le Exposure? Me taking a picture of my Kindle, playing the Enterprise, while the sliding door behind me reflects the woods and lakes…neat, huh?!

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
