More of the same
I had hoped to go to the mountains this last weekend, but things did not work out. I had expected that to happen, but I always kind of hope for some little surprise at the end. I haven't been to Rocky Mountain National Park for fourteen years now. The mountains, the desert, the ocean -- those are three things I love, but here I am in Nebraska pretty much far from any of them. Nebraska is not a bad place to be. I love the seasons and the storms -- but I still miss the other things. I haven't seen the ocean in a long, long time. The desert? Maybe 1997? The mountains were at least this century.
I hope that year fifteen will be the one when we get a chance to go. You never know -- it could happen. I might even make a few sales and be able to afford something as extravagant as one night away from home! LOL. Two nights? Nah. My books won't ever sell that well!
So what did I do this weekend instead? Well, we had an interesting storm on Friday. Lots and lots of pictures. Great clouds. Saturday was much cooler and quieter, which was nice. Didn't do much at all since Russ had company. Sunday we had a nice ride out to a local state park, and I got a few pictures, and then we took some dirt roads and headed towards home. I also spent some time cleaning up some shelves in the living room and hoping that I can get the area cleaned up enough to sometimes set up my photo studio equipment. I can't even say what I really want to do for pictures, but it would be fun to have the opportunity.
Oh yes, I did write. I am closing in on the last of part four for Tales of Grey Station 9. This one should be the final really major rewrite out of the group of ten parts. I might have everything done by mid-July, which would be nice. This will be my next Wattpad entry -- though I think I might drop a couple shorter pieces in there as well. I just thought of a fun new cover art project for Author Vs. Character. People enjoy that story, and since it's free on Smashwords (and part of NaNo for the New and the Insane), I might as well put it up on Wattpad as well. Oh, and do a quick edit, too.
So there are my projects. Must keep moving. Something might come of it yet!
