Patriots

I don’t mention much about politics or world news here. It’s a blog for me and my writing, and I don’t always remember, to be honest. But today is Patriots Day, the day of remembrance in the US of the victims of the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks. I’ll be thinking of everyone affected today.

I’m also keeping the people who were/are in the path of hurricanes Harvey and Irma. I have family and friends in Florida and I’m keeping them in mind and heart as their storm continues through the state.

Now, on to words.

Sundays are turning into my best writing days. Part of me still thinks that I should be able to write at least that much on Saturday, but I haven’t quite managed it yet. That’s okay, Sunday is making up for it.

I killed it again this week. Yesterday was my best writing day for September. The week was my best writing week for the year (by 42 words, which totally still counts). I published three short stories and got a newsletter more or less up and running for my pen name (thank you, Labor Day, for the extra writing/working time).

So all in all, it was an excellent week.

This week is considerably busier. There’s that super large work event Saturday, they’re now calling for rain that day, and because I won’t be doing laundry all day, I’m likely going to have my weekend writing thrown into a tailspin because my routine will be blended into an unrecognizable rushed mash.

So if my next week isn’t quite as good, we’ll know why.
