Some of you probably noticed I didn’t post a blog last Friday. That’s ’cause I was/am buried in work. I see another three to four weeks of serious editing ahead of me, and whenever I get a day off between projects, I turn to my own stuff.
This morning (Sunday), I finished the initial edit on Weatherboy and sent it off to the beta readers. I’m hoping they don’t find any major screwups. Yes, this is possible. Writers often suffer from tunnel vision and forget some things as they concentrate on others.
Hopefully, I’ll know in the next week or so. In the meantime, life goes on and there is plenty else to do. I took the pic of the moth, below, as I was leaving R’s house one afternoon. He’s up north again, and I am taking care of the cats and plants.
This is related to the sphinx moth, but it’s precise name could not be pinned down. It was hanging on the wall outside his front door. I’m always amazed that something as simple as a moth displays such intricate designs on its wings. Nature is truly marvelous.
I took this next photo yesterday. We’ve had a lot of rain as the season winds up, and there was something about the water drops on the stem that appealed to me. The blurred plants in the background add interest.
Last but not least is a dragonfly called the Eastern Pondhawk. I was tossing chlorine in R’s pool when it landed beside me. I fetched the camera and it posed for me. Must have flown in one of the doors. It will find things to eat, so I’m not worried about it surviving.
Another busy week lies ahead. Hope you have a good one! I’ll be back Friday with more sample edits.
