This is my lonely Narcissus poking through the snow – the bravest of the two dozen or so that I planted last fall. Yes, we had SNOW again this week. Grrr. Where is my glorious spring where I can play outside and have lots of colorful flowers to greet me? I have very high expectations for May and I hope it knows it!
I am back to setting specific goals for the progress of Mr. Manuscript. I must finish the complete rewrite of chapter one by Thurs, or I don’t get a cupcake. This is a very good thing, for lately is seems that every little distraction is enough to keep me from really working my fiction writing muscles.
Here is the list of this week’s posts:
Quickly Quotable #5 – a quote from Edith Wharton about what makes a book a classic.
The Witch’s Aria from BBC’s “Merlin” – A beautiful piece of music in a visually stunning scene
A Blogging Schedule? Sure, I can do that – If you ever wondered how I organize my weekly posts look here.
The Comma, Clarified – A handy resource for comma rules.
Etymology: Grasping at Straws – Origin of the phrase “grasping at straws”
Friday Fun: Lost in Translation #2 – Mistranslations from Eastern Europe
Thank you all for tuning in, and as always – Happy Writing!
