The ‘On a Break’ Edition: Second Serving Sunday

A weekly peek backwards and a look ahead,

from my little corner of the blogosphere…

Are you ready for a Second Serving?

Life Stuff:

It’s been a rest week for ROW80, but that doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped writing…as a matter of fact, I really haven’t even slowed down…


There have been a few setbacks. Plotting is taking longer than I hoped it would – but I feel that the drafting, once I get started in another day or two, is going to go much better, because of the manner of the prep work I’m doing…

And it’s July.  It’s an emotionally turbulent month for me, with my daughter’s birthday, mine – and the birth and death anniversaries of our second child, Elijah, who died at twelve days old. 

I’m planning to do what I do each year, and surf the waves of emotion, feeling what I feel, sharing as I feel…

And now, onward…
