I AM BUSY WRITING!!
Calvin and Hobbes
by Bill Watterson
It has been quite some time since I posted! I have been reading a Calvin & Hobbes comic book I bought really cheap at Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago. It brings back memories of our son reading them out loud to us all the time when he was a kid. He has a stack of those books! But I decided to buy one for myself. Bill Watterson is such a talented artist and humorist. I have always loved his comics.
In other news I have been busy with my writing class’s assignment over the past couple of weeks. I have consulted with my instructor about the story I came up with about a girl who is a cutter. I found a literary magazine in the Writer’s Market book that accepts submissions up to 5000 words! My story is almost half that, but I am still working on it. I don’t want to make it that long, but it is nice to be able to have that much room to tell it instead of it having to be 500 or 1000 words only! Plus, I am not planning to send it to this magazine. Finding one was just part of the assignment. We also have to write a cover letter which I haven’t done before. I have also been reading a lot of children’s and young adults fiction. I read Charlotte’s Web for the first time…and cried. It was so good! But I couldn’t get into Stuart Little.
I have only sketched a couple of things in watercolors in the last week but unfortunately, they didn’t come out great so I won’t be posting them. I haven’t been drawing much either. Just one of those weird months, I guess.
But I thought I would at least check in and tell everyone that I will have something new soon. I hope everyone is doing well.
I am doing well. I had a “procedure” (that I won’t mention ) done last Friday that wiped me out for the weekend. So this has been a busy week getting back into the swing of things. But life is great! I hope everyone has had a good week!
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
