What’s next on your agenda?

Since so many things have changed in my recent life, I’m wondering if it is the same for you. I would like to know that I’m not the only one experiencing new schedules, new hobbies, new foods, new plans. Please comment and perhaps I’ll add something new to my list of accomplishments.

As you know, I resigned from teaching in February before the pandemic with my last day being May 22. Therefore, this is the first September in forever that I have had “free.” Free is an interesting phenomenon. In July we bought a house to flip, meaning I’ve become a painter and a cabinet hanger as well as a debris collector. It’s hard work, but I love working with my husband even though he says I’m slow and “un”professional. Yet, I get the job done well. I won’t say I’m free labor, but close to it until the house sells.

Add to that I now run an Airbnb. What? Yes, I’m a host. I’ve been a guest many times in Europe while traveling with my daughter, so I sort of know what a guest wants. We’ll see!

I’m an accidental gardener, meaning I throw seed out and see what they will do. I want to learn to make candles and petit fours!

My days always include reading and writing. I’m excited about the release of Wait for Me. I’m being ever so patient as I wait to hold it. That ends the Revolutionary Faith series. What’s next? Somehow, I’ll release the first book in Gardens in Time. Details in the next six months or so.

Enough about my what’s next. Share about something new in your life.

Summer Camp is Over

I spent the month of July writing 50,000 words on a novel. And, as of today I’ve written 50,560 words. So close to writing the end of Whispers of Wisdom, which is set in 1747 Chenonceau, France! Then, I will have my first draft ready for a serious edit.

IMG_E5165This is the third time I’ve joined National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! I’ve wanted to see how many hours a day I need to write to complete 50,000 words which is the length of a novella. There is a reason for this as I determine my next writing endeavor. I have an idea for a novella series that I will begin next month. For this I’m also considering a time split option. I’m not ready to reveal any more information at this time. I just know it will be fun to research and write something new.

As you wait for any new releases, I hope you will read all of the Revolutionary Faith books. The final book in the series will be released early 2021! Amazon: Revolutionary Faith Series
