It’s hard to be motivated when waking up to a scene like I did last Thursday:
The only thing I like about that photo is the “blue light” that I’ve never captured before. As the morning progressed, I took another photo from our front door:
We ended up with about 21 inches (53 cm) of snow in a 24-hour period. That’s snowpocalypse territory. My husband and I tag-teamed with shoveling the short walk to the driveway and the driveway itself. Luckily the HOA handles the main sidewalks. Nearly two hours later, we were tired. But we freed the car from this:
But now, we’re supposed to warm into the 40s and 50s, which should get things melting. And hopefully get me back into more writing progress.
I am so ready for Spring.
I’ll leave you with two tiny snippets from a WIP to show I really am working on the writing. The characters and I are getting back in synch. And that is a wonderful feeling. 😉
“Kat?” a student asked. “What about our stuff at camp?”
“We’re not risking a trip back there for ‘stuff.’ Things can be replaced. You can’t.”
And a slightly less tiny bit:
Every fiber of her Midwestern upbringing screamed in protest. Every training session drove her forward.
“Kat, for God’s sake,” someone said as they reached the scene.
She closed her thoughts to everything except the road beyond.
Short and simple as I still try to focus on writing, but this weather isn’t making it easy. Are you on your way to meeting your goals?
