I’ve been working in the garden and during my breaks from that, updating the chapter outline for the book my sister and I are working on together, doing more research on milk fever in the late 19th century, and I also managed to fit in a few minutes of actual writing time.  So, I’ve been busy and yes, I almost forgot about my Writing Challenge.  This week’s challenge was to post at least five blog entries and since I’m going to be tied up this weekend, I really need to get them done before Saturday.

Problem is, I don’t have anything specific to write about today.  Usually I can find some article on AOL or Yahoo but today…not a one struck my fancy.

I could, I suppose, write something about the Red Sox but after the weekend they had and the fact that they are, for the time being, winning again, I definitely don’t want to jinx them so…I’ll just say, I’m glad they’re back at Fenway!

Other than that, nothing else comes to mind.  I’m still working on the list of 52 writing challenges but I don’t want to post that until I get a little further along.  And I’ll probably make it a page instead of just a post so…like I said, zero, zilch, zip.

But wait, there is a new interview up on the Dames of Dialogue blog with author Sharyn McCrumb and there’s also a slightly older post about aging and extreme sports by guest author Ric Wasley.  Check them out and yep, you got it, don’t forget to leave a comment!

That’s about it from me today.  Sheesh, couldn’t even break 300 words with this one!  Hope everyone’s having a fabulous day!

As I alternate between staring out the window at the snow and researching mastitis in the late 19th century for my WIP, my guys are playing their first spring training game down in Florida.  Sure do wish I was down there with them.  I could really use a shot of summer right now and for me, nothing says “summer” like a baseball game!

Hey, look at that, the sun just popped out.  My yard looks like it’s been dusted with diamond dust.  It sure is beautiful on the snow but still I hope the fact that the sun finally came out means the snow will be gone soon and the temps will rise out of the thirties.  This winter has lasted long enough and I’m ready for some summer!

And you know what that means–baseball!  Yay!  Go Red Sox!

Okay, back to my research…but first, the Dames have a new interview up today with author and publisher, Wendy Dingwall.  Ever wonder why it takes so long for your book to come out after you sign a contract?  Well, Wendy explains it all on the Dames of Dialogue blog.  Check it out and don’t forget to leave a comment!
