Spring is in the air…yay!! It may be March, but I’m struggling to shake off the winter blues. Seattle in spring often feels like the gloomiest place in America. We’ve had some sunny days, which have been wonderful, since I won’t be going anywhere until I’m vaccinated. I have no idea when that will happen. I can’t even get on the waitlist yet. *sighs* Guess I’ll have to keep dreaming of sunny beach days in Florida.
Meanwhile, I’ll be writing. My CP Bestie and I have two virtual writing retreats planned this month. The first one is this Saturday. Yipee!! Later in the month, I’ll be participating in another retreat hosted by YA author Sarra Cannon and her HB Word Sprint Group. For this retreat, we’ll be taking a virtual trip to Ireland. I can’t wait! Sarra is so inspiring and these retreats are the exact motivation I need to keep writing during this lonely time of quarantine and social distancing. I’ve set my goals and I’m ready to write, write, write!! Of course, my Trusty Assistant Milla (aka my fur baby) will be by my side. She’s the best writing companion a girl could ask for!
In other news, I hope to update my Books in Progress page soon. I want to offer a better status update on each of my works-in-progress. I’d like to add a status bar showing my word count progress, like Sarra Cannon does on her website...if I can figure out how to do it on Weebly, lol.
BOOKS TO BINGE
Speaking of Sarra Cannon, I spent this past weekend binge listening to her live readings of the first three Shadow Demons Saga books on her YouTube channel. SO much witchy goodness! I’m totally hooked on the series now. I like listening to the live readings. Sarra has such a lovely voice. Another plus has been getting to know Sarra’s community of fans. They’re a great group!
Sarra is currently reading Shadow Demons (Book 4 of the Shadow Demons Saga) live every Monday and Wednesday. Come join the fun!
SHOWS TO BINGE
PBS Masterpiece dramas are like comfort food for my soul. Just hearing the intro music fills me with immense joy. I recently watched the remake of All Creatures Great & Small, based on James Herriot’s books about life as a Yorkshire vet in the 1930’s. It was so…soothing and wonderful. I loved all of the characters, the animals, and the gorgeous landscapes. I can’t wait for season two!
