I meant this for earlier in the month but got sidetracked. This has been an extremely busy month. April showers are here. The ground in my swampy yard is…swampy. I have to put on my boots to go out there. Grden work has started. I put down the borer control and bought ant traps for the house. Everything is really growing, and daffodils are blooming, in fact, almost done. Hyacinths are opening up. Beautiful but a lot of work. Frogs are awake in the pond but I haven’s seen much of the fish yet. Got the mower tuned up.
The storage area is finished in that the two are combined. I’m back to writing. I read at my local group and it encouraged me a lot. I have been struggling in the middle, as you know. When I struggle a lot with a section of the book, I tend to think it isn’t working, but when I read I realized it was. I guess I just needed a break from it to come back with fresh eyes. Reading at my group always keeps me writing too because I have to have something to read. I not only intend to get back to my writing I want to pick up the pace to see if I can get back on schedule for publishing the book this year.
I started by cleaning up the area where I write. I’m still in progress with that. It got a lot of other stuff tossed on top of it. I have four days before I have to go back to work and I would like to finish chapter twelve and maybe thirteen. The murder has happened. Lincoln and his colleagues are saddened by it and trying to pick up the pieces to move on. Lincoln wants to find out who did it (of course) and to see they are brought to justice, but nothing has changed in this town that supported the murderers. Okay that’s enough for now.
Happy writing and reading to everyone!
