I like recycling the old and seeing what I can do. It's especially fun to do while shopping in
an antique store. So many ideas to be had from people long departed and history to be learned.
It's my way of conserving and I suppose it's a reaction to growing up with parents who
went through the Great Depression.
Hard lessons recycled?
Special wishes for a nice Valentine's Day with your sweetie (s).
I have not blogged much since taking a blog vacation last May, so wanted to say "HELLO" again to everyone.
I continue to write, but at a much slower pace. Too many tempting diversions in retirement, but I'm not depressed about this at all, just thankful that life continues to be rich and good. Now the gardening season is approaching and I can't wait to see what hubby and I can do. There is the A-Z coming up as well, and I have considered using it to research a period of history (the year 1939), so you may see me again. I do love history as some of you know.
My novel has been submitted, and currently sits with four publishers, so happy to finally have it out there. I'm researching two more and concentrating on outlining a third. I made the mistake of not outlining my first novel in great detail. I had a synopsis and a brief outline, but as the story grew I found myself buried in subplots and threads that led to nowhere. It took a long time to clean up. I'm taking the advice of another writer (I don't remember their name) who advised not to overlook a detailed outline. If I think I'm done, go back and take another look, they advised. It's a process I admit I do not enjoy. I'd rather be writing the story or editing (my favorite).
Would love to hear how you are doing too.
