Fab Friday (again!)

Finally today, the Babe was able to get the injections from the Pain Management Team, one shot in each of four ribs. This should give him relief from the terrible pain he’s had since he fell when the dogs pulled him off balance. Even though he’s been on the injured reserve, look what he did after the guys did the fireplace stone.

Barn Doors above new fireplace stone

Barn Doors cover the hole in the wall for the old style squarish tv sets, just before flat screens came out. This is a great way to cover up something unuseable for anything but storage. Right now, it appears our WIFI still transmits through the doors and I can once and for all hide all the components and extra decorative items. Win-Win! How the Babe did this while in pretty bad pain is beyond me. Hope the pain is a thing of the past. Time will tell, so prayers said and fingers crossed, he may be on the road to recovery.

We went to the Post and I emailed out their September Newsletter, and sent a copy to the printers for mailing, too. The older folks love to receive mail, so I like to make sure they’re on their way. I’m also learning how to use other social media to promote the Post and their activities. I can also use the time to learn how to use the same social media platforms to further my Author page. It all helps get the word out, whether you want to help veterans or distribute novels. Building your audience, getting the word out.

Today, I received a copy of “Corgi’s in the Wild,” a children’s book my friend, Gabbie Wieck wrote. It’s a delightful tale and I’m mailing one to our little grandkids in Colorado, and taking one over for Gavin and Addison to read to their new puppy, Josie. Dogs like the company of kids reading to them. Check out Gabbie’s book for your kiddos, on Amazon or directly from Gabbie on her Facebook page, Instagram, or Twitter.

Ain’t it the truth??

I don’t know about all of you, but I can assure you I’ve had more than my share of plot twists in life. You have to roll with it or else you can drive yourself crazy. Don’t waste time wondering why, adjust your crown and reign on. I did get a laugh out of the meme, though. I laugh a lot at these things, maybe more than I should, but they’re good fun at times.

My biggest task this week from Sam, my book coach, is to nail down the character arc. It sounds so easy, but it’s not. The book Story Genius, is teaching me. It stresses what keeps people reading, how to get people to want to keep reading, and what you need to do to create that in a book. It’s very interesting, and Lisa Cron, the author, discusses how we are wired for stories, we need stories, we need to tell them, and we need to tell them well.

Some days, it feels like this!

It’s getting dusk out here, the days are getting noticeably shorter. I am a fall lover. And spring. And summer, sort of. And parts of winter. But fall is great, outside in a sweatshirt and jeans nice. Everything begins the slow down, the prepping for winter and new growth of next spring. I appreciate you reading along at this later hour. I promise, it’ll be earlier tomorrow. Take care until then.
