Oh! Hey there! Welcome back for another weekend coffee share. What would you like? I’m abundant in coffee this week – I’ve got three varieties of organic fair trade (Sumatra, Mexico, and Thailand) and two regular (Ethiopia and Exclusive blend). Of course, I’ve got plenty of tea. If you like green, my husband brought back a delicious and wonderfully fragrant green tea with jasmine from Thailand. And it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t offer you a green smoothie.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you it’s been a tough week. I’ve had this exhausting cough for over a week now. I was still hacking it up this morning, but I am feeling better now. I’ve been drinking lots of ginger, lemon and cinnamon water. I’ve been trying to get plenty of rest, but that’s difficult. At least I’ve been sleeping well.
It’s the end of the month and I feel like I’ve got so much stuff to get done before the end of the month. Do you ever feel like there are never enough hours in a day? Not getting enough sleep is not an option any more. Maybe it’s age or habit, but I rarely stay up past midnight any more – even on weekends. I think I may have become a boring responsible adult unwittingly.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I’m excited about some new stuff going on on the blog. I started a series of posts inspired by the Big Book Festival. So far I’ve written about literature and politics and humility in writing. I’ve got a few more posts, but these (and the discussions) have already given me several ideas for other writing-related posts.
This week will be the beginning of another series, just in time for NaNoWriMo prep, about the process of writing a novel from preparing through writing the first draft and subsequent drafts, editing, etc. This series will include guest posts by other bloggers who’ve already published a book (or several). Maybe you’re interested in contributing?
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful weekend – what remains of it anyway. How was your week? Anything good planned for the weekend?
