Just reading that Lincoln (in the fabulous book A Team of Rivals - that the movie Lincoln derived from) was the one who instigated American Thanksgiving. Originally it was up to the governor of each state. So there! Who knows how it got going here in Canada but late November would be far too late for us northerners to have a harvest feast!
When I grew up Victoria Day was also Firecracker Day. Now every day is firecracker day - too bad - things are less fun when relegated to the every day.
Now - what's up with me and writing as this is my Crazy Writing Life? I am nearly finished the latest revision of Bright Angel. As stated, I did it in twenty page heats - which was perfect. I'm on the last thirty pages so a heat and a half. Figure it might be a longer time than the first part as the end is the most ... um ... untogether. Yes. Then I'll figure out where I'm sending it.
June will soon be upon us and that is the month that we Burrowers do our writing marathons. I have no desire to begin another one - Bright Angel was done in last years event of BuNoWriMo. So I think I will use the time and help of the others in order to finalize my revision of The Rock Walker - my first mystery. If I get it done to my satisfaction - which would be ready to send out - I'll finish Earth Bound - the second of my Kitty McDonald mysteries and one I wrote the bulk of in my first NaNoWriMo. It is still a dog's dinner and I thought I should never do a fifty tho in thirty day venture again as I cannot seem to PLAN AHEAD but I broke that hex with Bright Angel. I now know the secret - simplify simplify simplify!
And what are your goals for the coming days, weeks, months?
Here's a gratuitous pic of my man and my dog!
