Current mood: still feeling spooky
A flash and a half this week. Sometimes I start a story and then let it simmer, maybe for a couple of hours, or overnight. Occasionally, I’ll get stuck, and all I’ll need to do is stand up and walk about three feet from my computer when all the ideas hit me.
Creativity is weird.
It was a quiet Halloween here, probably because it was so cold.
I love seeing trick-or-treaters, but with three rescue dogs, it’s problematic. All three have varying responses to the doorbell ringing, but it is uniformly loud.
So these days, we set a bowl of candy on the front steps.
Even though we don’t do Halloween up like we used to, it’s still one of my favorites.

Okay, not really. I’m not even sure if I’ve had a pumpkin spice latte.
I love pumpkin scones, and bread, and muffins, and pie … and… and.
You get the idea.
This week, I wrote two complete flash stories and started a third.
I’ve also been contemplating 2020 and what I might do, writing-wise.
2019 wasn’t my best year for productivity. I’m mulling on that, starting small (see above about the flash fiction stories), and I have some plans for what I might do.
And that’s all I’m going to say at this point. Yeah, I know, vague-blogging. But the other thing I’ve come to realize this year is I’m not one of those writers who can talk projects while working on them.
In the mood for some spooky reading? Grab some free and 99 cent books this weekend and get ready for Halloween.
Quick check-in today. Got another short story written this week, and now I’m tired. (But not because I wrote a short story; possibly, though, the laundry is making me tired.)
So I’m calling it a night and a very short check-in. More next week.
