September is.National Be Kind to Writers and Editors Month

Wow... we almost missed this. Only one week of September left... If I'd only discovered this at the beginning of September, I could have been milking this for 24 days...

Oh well.... there's always this week...

You see it's ... National Be Kind to Writers and Editors Month.

I'm not sure Hallmark has a card for this one, but you could check. If not, send a writer or editor an email and tell him/her how much you love and appreciate what they do. That should do it. Unless they read this blog post or a blog post of another writer and editor without enough to do, they probably don't know about it anyway.

What do you do with your insomnia?

Bugsy: Chief Organizer... ha!

Obviously, you can tell from the time stamped on this blog post that I pull myself out of bed and get a little work done when I have insomnia. This may or may not be the best way to get back to sleep. I figure it's better than stewing about not sleeping. Whatever works....right?

During this particularly insomnia, I started thinking of all my writing and art and quilting projects I've started and how to organize myself once again to finish them. Isn't it just a bit frustrating that the very minute we get ourselves totally organized is the very minute disorganization starts again. Hey... I've decided to just accept that. It's part of creativity. Right now is a particularly disorganized period, so I'll use this insomnia to straighten my desk and put everything in some semblance of order.

What do you do when you have insomnia...?

Farmer's Market: A simple thing


"onions"


It's always a joy to go to the farmer's market on Saturday's. I love all the reds and the greens of the peppers and the tomatoes. Once in a while, I like the simplicity of the beige of onions in a beat-up, old basket.

Hidden stories.

green gables - another view

As writers, we love to tell stories. Many times I'll see an old building and wonder what stories are lost within it. That's the case with Green Gables. I took this picture some time ago. I drove by it a few days ago and found that it's in even in worse shape now. I've always wondered what stories it has to tell. We should not only record our fictional stories, but the stories of the people and places around us.

Have a great day.
