WriteThatNovelIt’s been a slow week for painting. I still have my work in progress sitting on my easel. Maybe next week I will be more motivated?

I think I did okay with writing. I got between 500 to 1000 words a day each day. It wasn’t work on my novel, however.

I thought it would be a good exercise to write a short story about the parents of my main character. It’s helping me to get this information straight in my head so I can go forward with the rest of the story.

This background information on their story and who they are sets the stage for my two protagonists and introduces other characters as well.

What started as a short story seems to be growing into a novella…it’s taking on a life of its own!

I didn’t get my reviews done like I had planned, but that is on my agenda for next week.

annihilationMy husband and I went on an actual date this week! We went to see the movie Annihilation.

I love Natalie Portman, and I found the movie fascinating but at the same time I walked out of the theatre wondering…what the heck did I just see?! lol

Sometimes I’m a bit slow, but I can’t help but feel that there was much more to this story that couldn’t be incorporated into the movie.

I just received the ebook from the library and I can’t wait to start reading it! Hopefully some things will make more sense and fall into place.

I always enjoy books so much more that the movies just because you know so much more about what is going on.

BreatheI made it to one yoga class this week! Yay! I took my dog Burger for a walk and went to a morning class for a change. It felt amazing but it did wear me out for the rest of the day. I’m not used to that much activity!

So, this week coming up, painting is on the menu as well as continuing with my background short story/novella and yoga class.

I also hope to finish off three book reviews. Phew!

Thanks for reading!
