Last Wednesday, I finished my rough draft of my short story I have been working on. It is nice to have a finished draft before I start the editing stage.
Sometimes, it is hard to finish writing projects dealing with Attention Deficit Disorder. I managed to stay focus on my task.
I had been spending time with my family for the past couple of weeks and enjoying the nice weather. There have been many distractions, but I stayed committed to finishing my short story. I did it!
My short story is finished. I have a rough draft.
Today is the first day of spring! Once again, I made it through another winter but, it wasn’t that harsh. Something deep within my soul tells me winter is done.
I believe we are connected with nature; and our ancestors knew winter was a dangerous time because the hardship of the cold and dark season, and why we celebrate the first day of spring.
Now, the temperatures are warming up slowly and more sunny days are coming. The trees are still asleep; I’ve watched for leaves to bud. Nothing. It won’t happen until April.
Also, spring brings severe weather like tornadoes and strong winds. Already, March has been very rainy and windy too in northern Indiana.
I’m wondering if March will roar like a lion, but it will be revealed at the end of March.
My life has been a little crazy for me lately for I have been dealing with a sick kitty. He is feeling better now after I took him to the vet about two weeks ago. The Golden Shadow is back to his old self. It is good to see him running and playing through the house.
I have been focusing on my short story which I am almost done with it. A couple of days ago, I wrote the ending. Now, I need to write the remaining scenes for the climax. Then I will put it aside for a while before starting the editing stage.
Then I will work on another writing project and finish reading some novels that I have been reading.
That’s what I’ve been doing for a couple of weeks.
This past weekend I read the novel From The Sky. It is the first book in the trilogy of Beyond Moondust, and the next two books are available on Amazon. On Friday, I downloaded a free e-book, and I brought the audio version too.
It was a fun read and I like Samantha (Sam) for she was strong and courageous. other times, she did some really stupid and dumb things that got her into trouble. After all, she was a teenager and teenagers don’t always make the greatest choices.
It was a simple read of a love story about two teenagers filled with tragedy, danger, and figuring out what the future holds for them.

I didn’t do much writing today. I’m dealing with a migraine that is lingering on. For me, it has been challenged staring at a screen for a long period. However, I really want to finish my short story that I’ve been working on. This evening I managed to write a synopsis for the last four remaining scenes. I thought that I had just two left in my head but when I put my words on the paper (screen) it turns out there was two more in my creative juices. Next, what I want to do is briefly outline each scene so I know where I’m going. But I don’t think that’s going to happen tonight for my head is just throbbing. That will be my goal for tomorrow.
Well, I wanted to give a quick update on my progress.
I am nearly done writing the first part of my short story. I just have two more scenes to write. Today, I wrote 1375 words.
