Chapter by Chapter

It’s official. It’s Summer!

Cookout time!

Beach time!

 

Rain?

Snow? – Really now? Wrong season, but it’s been so cold lately. Yesterday I was expecting to see flakes falling from the sky.

With all the rain we’ve had recently the grass should be knee high. Mike is out cutting it as I write this. I know the chickens will be feasting on a green dandelion salad when he is through.

ROW 80 check In:

It has been a while since I last checked in for ROW80. I’ve been suffering for the past four months with a writers’ block, and the block has finally broken.

I’m not sure if the NEC Conference or the Deb Dixon Workshop had anything to do with it. Maybe it was the fact that I had an ah ha moment today with Scrivener. I can now work the split screen function on my own.

You say big deal. I say for the simple minded it is a big deal. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been stumbling around with that complex program.

It might be complex, but I do love every bit of it.

Now I am relearning accountability on my part. It was something I had done way back when I was on MySpace. That seems so, so long ago, almost a century ago. It was back before Facebook became the thing it is today.

So where am I doing this accountability?

Why, I’ve been visiting Wattpad of course. It has been around for a few years. I just never knew how to use it until now. Kind of the way I have been learning to use the Scrivener Program.

I’m on Chapter 3 of Sleeping on the Beach. Please feel free to follow along. It is a work I am panstering. Note: Usually, I’m a plotter.

That’s 900 words for the week. It is better than nothing.

See the link for my Wattpad story in my right hand sidebar, if you are interested in following along.

  1. I fully agree that working out a new function on Scrivener is a big deal. I love it and now can’t write anything without it, but I still feel that i’m not using it to it’s full potential. So go you!
    And great news on the writer’s drought breaking. Ride the wave as long as you can.
    Good luck!

  2. Congratulations on breaking your writers block! The best feeling in the world is finally sitting down and watching your words fly. I hope you continue to be inspired for the rest of the round and beyond. Good luck!
