If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I don’t really have much time today, because as always, I have a busy weekend planned. The weather is nice, so I plan on spending as much time with my husband and son, especially since my husband will be leaving for Algeria on business on Tuesday and we won’t spend next weekend together.
Today we went to my son’s basketball practice and then the local gallery for the Children’s Art Book Festival, where we bought several beautiful books. I acquired a screen-printed hand bound notebook that I’ll use as a journal. Afterwards, we went for tea and sat outdoors enjoying the weather and some leisure time. Not all business has to be busy.
I do have a lot of writing to do. I’m participating in Story A Day May, but this week has been so busy with work that I’ve only written 4 short stories so far this month. That’s not bad considering that there are some months that’s all I write, but I want to have 31 stories at the end of May. This means I need to do some catching up this weekend.
Speaking of writing, I’d also tell you about something new I’m trying here on the blog. Every Wednesday I post a writing prompt. I’ve been posting them since last November. I enjoy coming up with them, so much so that I’m writing a prompt book. The feature has been the least popular thing I post as far as views go, so I knew I had to change something. This month I decided to add my own response and invite others to join in. Maybe you’d like to give it a go? Click here.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I’m super excited about the 1st (possibly) annual Blogger Bash that will take place in London on August 1st. It’s being organized by the talented Sacha Black. August cannot come fast enough. This summer’s vacation will be spent in London, which is completely fine by me. It’ll be my first time in London. How great I’ll get to spend my time with other bloggers and writers?!
How was your week? How are your writing (or other) projects going? Will I see you in London in August?
It was nice seeing you for coffee (or tea) again. See you soon.
