Sunday Sundries--Bigger and Better

This week, I'm going to be working an early schedule. While I'm used to being up until 3 am, now I have to be in at work at 10 am. It's only for four days, but it's a change. Some change is good, right?

So, I've actually done some writing this week too. I've been transcribing my notebooks on my lunch hour and got a bunch of pages into a program called OneNote. The program lets you organize things in folders and subfolders. I can sort my quotes into subjects, I can organize my character notes and get thoughts and ideas into sections for the different books I have planned by my timeline. I can move subtopics to new subjects. By going through my notebooks, I'm excited and inspired to get back to actually writing.

I want to talk about books and reading, since both topics have been so important in my life. Here are a few things to share:

I resemble that remark. I've been staying inside during this heat wave. My poor husband works for a TV station and had to be outside working on a golf tournament that was held locally. Ugh!

But, being inside means I did get some writing done, though I did spend too much time on Facebook, Pinterest, etc.

Butt in chair, right?

At least wait until Tuesday to give up.

My "real life job" is tech support. I've used transcribing my notes as a way to increase my typing speed and it has helped. But, I talk to these folks all the time:

Have you ever noticed this:

Here's someone who especially knew what he was talking about:

I haven't felt this way in a long time and I really miss it:

I can't tell you how many summer days I spent reading. These are my old friends. And finally:

Proud to create. Everyone stay cool and have a great week!


  1. I can't write a lick but I can read. Good one.
    Love you, Bro

  2. I hit my revision hard the first part of last week but I'm having a hard time staying motivated to do anything besides sit in my air conditioned bedroom under my ceiling fan and read these crazy hot summer days. But I plan to get back to work on my writing after the fourth of July holiday. Thanks for all the inspiration!
