Quote for the week: I start drawing, and eventually the characters involve themselves in a situation. Then in the end, I go back and try to cut out most of the preachments. Dr, Seuss
Ripples in the Inkwell #inkripples is a new monthly meme created by Kai Strand, Mary Waibel, and Katie L. Carroll. We’ll be posting on the second Monday of every month with a new topic. We’re all authors, but you don’t have to be to participate. Simply compose your post using the monthly theme, grab one of the images, and link back to the three of us. Make sure to use #inkripples when you play along and promote your posts. The idea is that we toss a word, idea, or image into the inkwell and each post is a new ripple. There’s no wrong way to do it!
The themes for the rest of the year are:
August: Dog days/Things that drag you down
October: Fears/Things That Go Bump in the Night
November: Remembrance /Thankfulness
December: Celebration /Gifts
I was so excited to learn about this. It looks like fun. I hope I'm not doing anything wrong. Thank you Mary Waibel, Katie L. Carroll, and Kai Strand for the great idea.
June is Summer/Vacation
This summer I have no plans to travel anywhere, though that could change. I would enjoy visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Charleston, SC, but I'm not big on flying. A visit with my other son and daughter-in-law in California would be nice too. Again, the flying part I'm not crazy about. Both are too far for me to drive, so I'll stay home and pester my son that lives next door. Bless him. I'll also paint some places on the house that need it, pull weeds from the flowerbeds and watch the Rangers baseball games on TV or my computer.
My cats would be lonesome if I left them, anyway. I also should have edits soon for my middle grade novel Princess Breeze, due out in early 2016. And my middle grade historical novel A Family for Leona is waiting for a cover and then I'll need to promote it. Maybe June, maybe later.
So, a quiet, yet busy June for me.
How about your June? Any big plans?
Visit Kai, Mary, and Katie to see what plans they have.
