April 18 – Moldy Molasses

When I was in High School, I played in the band. I can’t tell you how many times I heard the director say to the whole band something like, “That piece is supposed to be lively. You folks made it sound like moldy molasses.” That’s how my writing flowed today. The devotional went fine, 581 words. Then, after doing a few things around the house, I started trying to work on a piece I’m trying to submit to an anthology on Time Travel. I had gotten some notes back from an editor, and as I tried to incorporate them, nothing flowed. I wrote enough words to cover my challenge, barely, and left it til tomorrow because … well … because.

While dealing with the writer’s block, I read some more of the Venom Protocols and of God Dreams. I also played Splatoon, trying to free my mind. Have I told you that I’m not a gamer? Anyway, I finished the writing after church and watched my daughter play Splatoon the way it’s supposed to be played.

April 4 – Finished

I got my devotional finished fairly early today – 514 words. I got some walking in early. Today was cold for April in South Texas…lower 60’s and wind…it’s a wet cold. Then, I mixed editing time and housework and finished the final 6 days worth of the May/June devotional book. I’m going to let it sit a day while I work on some other editing projects, then format it for paperback and eBook status. I got official news that my short story has been accepted for the local author anthology….a very patient editor/publisher. When I finished the editing….I took care of the dog. (Which is our way of saying, I didn’t do anything.) I did begin the process of learning to play Splatoon 2. I am not a gamer….just sayin’. My daughter enjoys laughing at me. Church tonight touched on one of the devotionals I had edited earlier today – different Scripture passage, but the same idea. Overall, it’s been a good day.

Today’s devotional: April 4 – Understanding Begins With God

Fiction reading today: Someday I’ll be Redeemed: Chronicles of Lorrek by Kelly Blanchard. Fantasy is not my preferred genre, but I’m enjoying this book.
