Welcome to my belated Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Eclectic Ali! Had I posted this on time, well, it wouldn’t have sounded very different.
I’m experiencing allergy issues and/or laryngitis. Briefly, I suspected strep throat, though I don’t think I could have held out this long if that were the case. So, my weekend consisted of Mucinex, salt-water gargling, Netflix watching, a little bit of reading, and a little bit of writing. That, and posting photos of my dog on Instagram. It’s a new hobby or escape of mine, the world of #dogstagram. Check it out. You can find my canine angel at Bixby_Fluffikins! He cheers me in any mood, and all the other dogs at #dogstagram are a joy as well!
At any rate, the annual St. Patrick’s Day tradition pretty much always finds me recovering or nursing an allergy related malady, so I barely even participate, despite finding out from Ancestry DNA that I am 2% Irish. At least this year I didn’t get a stomach bug! (Those are probably related to my public school teaching job). That’s a story in itself. Enough belly-aching. Pun not intended….
I’ve been working on revising my WIP, a sequel to Detours in Time! Yes, I think I’ll have it all done by this summer, and I am due to send it off to an editor, today or tomorrow. So, I have been neglecting the blog a little. I’ve overloaded myself on Netflix, and the new obsession is Travelers, a mysterious sci-fi series about people from the future coming back to set certain things right. I’ve been reading how to write a screenplay, started another installment in the Irish Lottery series by Gerald Hansen, and I also started reading The Shack for a book club. Why did I start two books? One is on Kindle and the other paperback, so it depends on mood and how long it takes the phone battery run out of juice. That, and, I have to be in the right mood for how to write a screenplay. Though, it all looks familiar, but I am taking notes and bookmarking.
Speaking of Book clubs, my church’s book club decided to read my book, Detours in Time, and we met to discuss it this last Thursday. I, with my hoarse-y voice, was not going to miss it for the world. I was asked to prepare discussion questions. So I did! It was interesting and was quite an honor! If you have a book club and would like to read a sci-fi book that focuses most on characters and moral dilemmas, consider this one. Let me know, and I will supply discussion questions!
