Home of a mother, wife, writer

After it being rainy most of the week, it turned beautiful yesterday. Which was perfect for the first motorcycle ride of the season for us. It started in my hometown and went throughout the county and raised money for the Special Olympics. We cut off from the rest of the group early because we had to pick the kids up from my MIL(and stop to get the truck from home first, obviously) since she had plans for the night. Still we were on the bike for about 7 hours, so it was good.

Probably not doing much today. We talked about going out for breakfast or lunch, but I imagine everyone else will be doing the same, so I’d almost rather just stay home.

  1. Wow, lots of progress there! Congrats!

    I think it’s cool that you’re using your WIPs for your SAD stories. A good way to participate and make progress on them!

    • Thanks! Yeah, I’m really enjoying writing them. Yesterday’s was really fun. Today’s was more of back story instead of something I can use in the WiP, but it still helps me get more in the character’s head.

  2. Good for you. What great progress. Here’s to next week being as productive!
