A weekly peek backwards and a look ahead, from my little corner of the blogosphere…
- Click the link for my recent posting history!
It’s been an interesting week. We’ve had a taste of spring, followed quickly by the return of winter weather, and a power outage that lasted about five hours. Things are warming up sllloooowwwwyyyy, now…
I’ve got a split on the bottom of my foot (my skin tends to crack during the cold season), and it’s making walking very painful. I’m thinking that I’ll try a corn cushion pad, and see if I can get back to moving without a limp, because limping around while hometending just isn’t my idea of fun.
In other news – while I’m still feeling “behind” in my prepping for the various challenges I’ve scheduled for the next four months, I’ve done a good chunk of plotting for my CampNaNoWriMo project – the first two novellas in my Kifo Island Chronicles series, which is based on my A-Z Challenge posts from last year. I’ve also written a new Trip and T’Pol story, roughed out two essays, edited and collaged some pictures for future blogposts, and done most of the reverse engineering needed for revisions of my TnT short story, “Slow Jazz Awakening”, which I wanted to submit to Ad Astra in February, but am hoping now to get out before the end of March.
I’ve also been hometending – getting a jump on the spring fling, even if the weather isn’t exactly cooperating with me, just yet.
All that to say, I’ve been doing stuff. Lots of it. =)
And now, last week’s features:
- Nothing this week…but stay tuned!
- Peace in the Stars?: An excerpt from my time-travel fantasy novel-in-progress, Chameleon’s Dish. Tisira is with her father, watching the stars that have always brought comfort – but her reality is shifting, and she was somewhere else, a few breaths ago – was she not?
- “I, Eye, Aye, Sir?”: The highly illogical vagaries of written English prove problematic for Enterprise‘s Vulcan Science Officer, with unexpected and amusing results.
- “Seeking Clarity”: My first #8sunday post: exactly eight sentences from a current work. I chose the opening sentences of my 2014 NaNoWriMo project, a Star Trek TOS/Enterprise crossover fan fiction novel, The Earth Doth Move, wherein a young Spock goes to the desert to contemplate a major life decision.
ROW80: The Writing Challenge That Knows You Have A Life.
- Shifting Spring Vision:The changing season brings new perspective, and new progress.
- An Active Vision: A power outage, and shifting creative energies…
Variety’s Spice: Two reblogs, this week, and both well worth a look! =D
- Mindful Monday – Letting Go of Control: Bee Halton explores what it means to live mindfully, and the freedom that can come from letting go.
- Explore the Elements: Restless Jo offers four stunning elemental images – gorgeousness in nature!
- Wrapping up ROW80 Round One – the round goes in the books, officially, on Thursday. I’ll post my final update on Wednesday, and then look at my longer-term goals during the break before Round Two starts on April 6.
Completing and submitting homeschool paperwork (done!), and my fan fiction story, “Slow Jazz Awakening”, currently in revision.
This week, on the blog:
- For Coffee and Conversation: At long last, my Blogging from A-Z Challenge Intro Post. (Yes, I thought that it would be posted this past Monday, but it turns out I was a week early for the Big Theme Reveal, so it will post this week, instead.)
- For WIPpet Wednesday: A final bit from Chameleon’s Dish, at least for the next few months, as we find out what happens next to Henry, a boy on his own, facing a possibly disastrous situation…and then we move to new stuff for April – July.
- Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS):A post based on the weekly prompt, TBA Friday. Might be fiction, or not, but it’s always surprising!
- Eight Sentence Sunday: Eight more sentences from the Prologue of The Earth Doth Move. This is the last week for a while – I’ll be sharing excerpts from my Kifo Island Chronicles novellas during April.
- ROW80 Updates: My progress on my current and long term goals for A Round of Words in 80 Days, posted on or near Sunday and Wednesday.
