Second Serving Sunday: The “It’s Spring, Sir!” Edition

A weekly peek backwards and a look ahead, from my little corner of the blogosphere

Life Stuff:

My last Second Serving Sunday post: The It’s Been A While Edition

  • Click the link for my recent posting history!

It’s been an interesting week. We’ve had a taste of spring, followed quickly by the return of winter weather, and a power outage that lasted about five hours. Things are warming up sllloooowwwwyyyy, now…

I’ve got a split on the bottom of my foot (my skin tends to crack during the cold season), and it’s making walking very painful. I’m thinking that I’ll try a corn cushion pad, and see if I can get back to moving without a limp, because limping around while hometending just isn’t my idea of fun.

In other news – while I’m still feeling “behind” in my prepping for the various challenges I’ve scheduled for the next four months, I’ve done a good chunk of plotting for my CampNaNoWriMo project – the first two novellas in my Kifo Island Chronicles series, which is based on my A-Z Challenge posts from last year. I’ve also written a new Trip and T’Pol story, roughed out two essays, edited and collaged some pictures for future blogposts, and done most of the reverse engineering needed for revisions of my TnT short story, “Slow Jazz Awakening”, which I wanted to submit to Ad Astra in February, but am hoping now to get out before the end of March.

I’ve also been hometending – getting a jump on the spring fling, even if the weather isn’t exactly cooperating with me, just yet.

All that to say, I’ve been doing stuff. Lots of it. =)

And now, last week’s features:

Coffee and Conversation:

  • Nothing this week…but stay tuned!

WIPpet Wednesday:

  • Peace in the Stars?: An excerpt from my time-travel fantasy novel-in-progress, Chameleon’s Dish. Tisira is with her father, watching the stars that have always brought comfort – but her reality is shifting, and she was somewhere else, a few breaths ago – was she not?

SoCS (Stream of Consciousness Saturday):

  • I, Eye, Aye, Sir?”: The highly illogical vagaries of written English prove problematic for Enterprise‘s Vulcan Science Officer, with unexpected and amusing results.

Eight Sentence Sunday:

ROW80: The Writing Challenge That Knows You Have A Life.

Variety’s Spice: Two reblogs, this week, and both well worth a look! =D

What’s Next:

March Focuses:

  • Wrapping up ROW80 Round One – the round goes in the books, officially, on Thursday. I’ll post my final update on Wednesday, and then look at my longer-term goals during the break before Round Two starts on April 6.
  • Completing and submitting homeschool paperwork (done!), and my fan fiction story, “Slow Jazz Awakening”, currently in revision.

This week, on the blog:

  • For Coffee and Conversation: At long last, my Blogging from A-Z Challenge Intro Post. (Yes, I thought that it would be posted this past Monday, but it turns out I was a week early for the Big Theme Reveal, so it will post this week, instead.)
  • For WIPpet Wednesday: A final bit from Chameleon’s Dish, at least for the next few months, as we find out what happens next to Henry, a boy on his own, facing a possibly disastrous situation…and then we move to new stuff for April – July.
  • Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS):A post based on the weekly prompt, TBA Friday. Might be fiction, or not, but it’s always surprising!
  • Eight Sentence Sunday: Eight more sentences from the Prologue of The Earth Doth Move. This is the last week for a while – I’ll be sharing excerpts from my Kifo Island Chronicles novellas during April.
  • ROW80 Updates: My progress on my current and long term goals for A Round of Words in 80 Days, posted on or near Sunday and Wednesday.

In the Wilds of Internet-Land: A celebration of spring!

Author:

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

  1. Hi Hon thanks so much for the re-blog. Not sure I said so before. Everythings a bit fuzzy in my brain…. am up since 2am :-). Have a great week. Sending a cup of coffee (or whatever you prefer) and a lovely homemade flapjack 🙂

    1. I love coffee, hot and sweet. Or chai. =) Flapjacks not as much as waffles or French toast…but I hope you enjoyed immensely! And that you got some sleep.

      Happy to reblog that post – it was spectacular!

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
