 As I mentioned in last Friday's post, I've been thinking about no longer blogging. At the same time, I've been doing it so long I don't really want to just stop doing it. After thinking about it for the last couple of weeks, I've decided I will only post every Monday. 

The post may be more along the lines of my former What's Up Wednesday posts at least for a while. I'm going to do this new format/posting schedule for the time being. I may decide to stop blogging altogether at the end of the year. We'll see how it goes.

This I know for sure...

As I mentioned in Wednesday's post. I'm thinking about no longer blogging. I'm not sure yet. It can sometimes take some time to come up with a topic then do the writing for Monday posts. Sometimes I even have a problem coming up with Friday posts that I think will be interesting. I've been told numerous times over the past few years that as a writer blogging is not a good way to utilize your time. I've been doing it since 2011 so part of me is hesitant to let my blog go. I need to make a decision one way or the other.

What's Up Wednesday

 This week...

My Current WIP (Work In Progress):  I only did about 5 pages of new material last week. I took my normal writing time to really take a look at where I am and where I want to be. I've been going back and forth on whether I want to continue blogging. If it's worth putting my time and effort into. 

Quote of the Week:  "A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work." ~ Colin Powell

What I'm Reading:  I started reading The Beast of Beswick by Amalie Howard on Monday afternoon. This is the first book I've read by this author and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. 

Random Thoughts:  I harvested the lone cucumber I grew this summer. We had no female flowers on any of the squash plants and only 2 female flowers on the cucumber plant. One grew quite well, the other only grew to about two inches or so and then withered away. The plants themselves grew like crazy. It was disappointing that there were only male flowers though.

Vacation Time

I'll be taking a staycation starting today though Labor Day to celebrate (or should I say mourn) the unofficial end of summer. During that time I won't be doing any blog posts. I will be back with a new What's Up Wednesday post on September 9th.

This I know for sure...

My female cat, Mrs. Green, loves to sit or lay on the windowsill and look out the window, especially when the window is open. She also sits on the sill of our big picture window in the living room. I can always tell when she's been looking out that window because it doesn't open and the glass is always full of little tiny nose prints no matter how often I wipe the glass down.

What's Up Wednesday

This week...

My Current WIP (Work In Progress): Still working on rewriting the ending. I've added sixteen more new pages. I had a couple of things crop up after work last week that took up some of my writing time. I'm hoping to get more done this week. 

Quote of the Week: "We define ourselves by our actions. With each decision, we tell ourselves and the world who we are." ~ Bill Watterson

What I'm Reading: I started reading What I've Done by Melinda Leigh on Monday. This is the fourth book in the Morgan Dane series. There are only two more books in the series before I'm caught up to what the author has written. I'm hoping she continues to write more books in the series.

Random Thoughts:  I really need it to cool down for a week or so. I'm about two months behind in working on my temperature blanket because it's way too hot to crochet with the blanket over your lap.
