What's up Wednesday

This week...

My current WIP (work in progress): I had a really good writing week last week - 25 pages of new material. This is the most I've written since the death in the family three weeks ago. Some days it was harder than others to make myself sit at the computer after working the day job, but I did it anyway.

News from the publishing world: This may be old news for some of you. I have to admit I'd heard of the deal some time ago, but thought this article was interesting. Link: Sale of Harlequin

Quote of the week: "The secret of getting ahead is getting started." ~ Mark Twain. This a variation of what I told myself this past week when I really wanted to do anything but write.

Health news: For all you coffee lovers, according to research published by Neurobiology of Aging, caffeine intake can help defend against alzheimer's disease by combating the adverse effects of protein deposits in the brain.

Random things: Saturday night is family movie night at our house. We watch a wide variety of movies from animated cartoons to action adventure, to bio-pics, to comedies, to serious drama. Some of the movies are pretty good, some we decide as a group to turn off after 20 minutes or so because we don't like them. Even though we're not interacting with each other during the viewing, we each look forward to movie night as a way to spend time together.

  1. Glad to hear you're feeling better, and writing again, Katherine!

    1. Thank you Juli. Some days are easier than others but I do feel like I'm getting back to some semblance of normal.

  2. Love your random pic of the week! Only one man in my family, the hubby, and he doesn't do anything with tears in his clothes. Well, besides stating that it's there, lol!

    1. Hi Miriam,
      I noticed all these metal lines in his shorts when he was wearing them one day and asked what they were. He flipped up the hem and showed me all the safety pins. He said he needed to wear them and I could sew them later. :o)
