*Reading: I have been bouncing between my menagerie of books. Haven't finished reading anything new yet, but enjoying the progress. Currently, I am working on Invisible Moon (James A. Owen), The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Agatha Christie), and Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Douglas Adams). I have recently discovered that I enjoy jumping from book to book, as it suit my mood. This sprang up from a conversation with an old friend from High School two weekends ago now about how we read books. I always marveled at her ability to read books quickly.
*Writing: wrote Monday (650 words) and Tuesday (953 words), and will be blitzing later today on Modern Muses.
*Editing: finished the reading through/edit of The Real Road Trip back on Friday. I am reallt please dto have made it the whole way through and even more pleased that the story is still workable. Just need some massive re-writes in the process. Enjoyed a bit of a break during the weekend. Now I start the next phase of the edits.
*Social Media: keeping up with my sponsor duties and returning to my daily 4 blog visits. Spent a little more time on Twitter with my #writestuff tweet chat yesterday.
In the middle of all this I have to find a schedule to accommodate my upcoming rehearsal schedule. Daunted? Maybe a little. Determined? Heck yeah! I built some good habit over the summer and don't want to lose that. I am also trying to do more challenges, like the WWW Wednesdays:
What are you currently reading?
-about 5 different novels. The one I am leaning more towards is Invisible Moon (James A. Owen). It the second in his Mythworld series about what happens when Rangarok happens in a little Upstate New York town. I don't think that was too spoilery.
What did you recently finish reading?
-The Festival of Bones, Mythworld Book 1 (James A. Owen). What happens when ancient literature meets opera?
What do you think you’ll read next?
-finish one of the other books I have started. Also want to revisit and finish the Inkheart series (Cornelia Finke) . I have a pending review of the movie that is just waiting to happen. I do book to movie review/analysis.
This (upcoming) Week:
*Reading: finish reading Invisible Moon and maybe Murder Comes Ashore (Julie Anne Lindsey).
*Writing: write daily, at least 300 words.
*Editing: begin my re-write of The Real Road Trip, trying the edits re-writing all the crap, and finally organizing the chapter, maybe an outline too. To be completed by the end of September.
*Blogging: missed my Tuesday blog day, so this week will be Thursday. 1 non-ROW80 post. Also blog about goal progress in August and September goals.
*Submissions: 2 new submissions and report on the progress.
*Social Media: visit 4 blogs daily and sponsor goals. Thinking of being a sponsor for Round 4.
Music Man read through is next week. Got to work on a props list. Revise my schedule to account for rehearsals and writing/editing time. Prep for NaNoWriMo in November. Post more spoke word to my YouTube channel (as it hasn't gotten a lot of love in the last year). Prepare for OctPoWriMo in October. Also, enjoy the End of Summer.

We find Thalos calling on Teri and she arrives via a dream form...
“Guess I am hearing things now.”
“No, you’re not,” the voice came again, sounding closer.
“Teri?” Thalos called, but when he looked up he didn’t see anyone or anything.
“You called?” Teri’s voice filled his ears.
“I heard to whisper my name. Then you said something. I then found myself here”
“What was that,” he said to the emptiness that was the study and to the direction that Teri voice had come from. He closed his eyes and thought about Teri, her shape, hair colour, her smell.
“Talo, it’s me.” The voice was stronger now and he saw through his closed eyes Teri’ small frame standing near the fire. “Come here, but don’t open your eyes too fast.”
“I how can I do that and not trip over chairs and mediaeval armour?”
“It seems to work better when you close your eyes. Relax . Then slowly open your eyes.” Easier said that done, Thalos thought to himself. “I am glad you called. There seems no way out of this room.”
“Where are you?” Thalos asked, finding that he was suddenly standing.
