Monday March 4, 2013
Yep, its Monday again. And not just any Monday, its the first Monday of the month. I know I've said it over and over, but I really can't believe its the start of a new month already. Time seems to be speeding up; just as it did for Roland Deschain in Stephen King's The Dark Tower series. I'd like to re-read this series; but I have Mile 8, Under The Dome, and 11/22/63 gathering dust on my book shelf. The last Stephen King I read was Full Dark, No Stars; and it gave me a renewed love of short stories.
Uhm, were was I? Oh yes, Mondays, the first Monday of the month, which heralds the first Wednesday, and IWSG. I'm good (polishes nails on chest), I already have my IWSG
rant post scheduled. Its a slow blogging month for me; I've signed up for Misha Gericke's Word Master Challenge, RFW Driven to Murder, Stephen Tremp and others National Wormhole Day, Aloha! Mark Koopman's Got Green, Alex Cavanaugh's Top 10 Movies, and Ellie Garratt's Passing Time release tour.
A pretty slow month for a blogger, and I have no blog posts scheduled between these events. I've learned something always comes up though, if you're open to spontaneity It may seem as though I'm falling down on my word of the year "accomplishment," but I'm considering that I sent off a submission package for a partial request on my first novel in the women's fiction series and made progress on the training manual for my day job as accomplishments for February. I have two critiques to accomplish for author friends in March, and I intend to read a novel from one of my favorite published authors (King or Terry Goodkind) just to read something for the joy of reading.
March is one of my favorite months due to the association with the Roman god Mars and all that mayhem surrounding Ceasar, so I'm hoping to get around to writing or completing a short story that I can submit for publication this month next year. This thinking ahead to a theme months or a year in advance takes some getting used to. I'm sure some day I'll get the hang of it if I intend to be published at least twice a year.
Well, this post went on longer than I expected. Thanks for staying with me through my entire March musings. Have a productive Monday.
