It's Hot!


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
        So, I’m going to preface this blog by saying…it’s hot! Brutally hot! Like walking into a blast furnace hot (hahahahaha, I’ve never walked into a blast furnace, but I can imagine this is what it feels like)! I’ve been hibernating in my house as much as possible this past week (even so, I’m feeling a bit wilted, but I always do in summer in Arizona…I’m a cold weather girl! Give me snow—as long as I don’t have to shovel it—and weather that makes one think of hot chocolate, cozy PJs and fireplaces).
        Okay, enough of that! I remain thankful for Mr. Carrier, the inventor of the air conditioner, and Frederick Jones, the inventor of the portable air conditioner!
Being in the house as much as I have been has led to all sorts of good things. I binge watched Alaska Daily (and yes, I feel guilty about that because I could have been doing other things, but then again, I do need some downtime now and then—the day job has been crazy busy and my brain is a little fatigued). Great drama. I would recommend it to anyone.
        The other thing staying in the house has brought is more writing time. Some days I did really, really well (surprising myself with the word count). Other days, not so much, but Anson and Tally’s story is progressing. I’d probably be a lot further along if I actually wrote in a linear fashion, but I don’t. I write scenes as they come to me then kinda puzzle them in later. I am currently on Chapter Four BUT I have started the big black moment as well as several other scenes. Yeah, this is how I do it. I’m sure this method would drive others nuts, but it works for me.
        And that’s about it. Since I’m on a roll, I should stay on it. Stay well! Stay safe (and cool)! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!
