Does anyone actually like Daylight Saving Time? Why is it we seem permanently stuck with this disruptive assault on those of us who struggle with the concept of time? It will take me days to adjust. And it cuts off the daylight where I need it most - after work.
Despite my determination to simplify my life, I have been buried with projects and activities. Last week, the company I work for hosted a customer audit. We were attempting to acquire an important environmental certification. Things look hopeful, although there is more work to complete before we are fully approved.
In the meantime, I received welcome news from the publisher of The Secrets of the Castleton Manor Library. My first entry in the multi-author series was enthusiastically approved. I now have a revision to complete, per the editor's comments. I am so happy to be a part of this very cozy mystery venture. These are sweet stories with lovable characters, and a mystery (often murder) to be solved.
I'm also working on a short story. This has been slow going, but this morning I had bit of a breakthrough. The plot threads are coming together. Often, when creating a story, the author doesn't envision every element. At some point in the writing, connections are made, and the plot elevates from a point A to point B telling, into something deeper.
I'm on a roll again with my fiction, and I don't want to take too much time away from writing, but I will be trying to post a short story review on Thursdays. I received the new AHMM in the mail, and purchased The Killer Wore Cranberry Thanksgiving-themed short fiction collection, so I have lots to read!
I hope you are enjoying time this fall curled up with a cup of coffee or cocoa, and a good book.
