Making Plans

My April Fool’s article from last year has finally been published! The paper didn’t do an April Fool’s issue last year due to the pandemic hitting hard. I have to say that this one and the one from the year before about sharks in the lakes are my favorites! The shark one is actually based in fact. A shark could survive in our lakes (not all sharks are salt water).

More and more birds are arriving. There was a big beautiful Raven in the deck yesterday along with a Robin. Several Robins have been hanging out the past few days. My bird book has been busy as I try to figure out who the new visitors are. I am hoping to be good enough with my camera that I can get some photos of the hummingbirds this year.

I have started a new bit of research for the werewolf novel. I truly don’t know how much of all this will end up in the book. A good part of this research is to flesh out my characters and their backgrounds. One of my problems is that I haven’t experienced some of my locations and I want to get things right. I know I won’t get everything right but I want to do as much as I can.

I have to keep clock watching this morning. I usually have Saturdays off but I work today and have tomorrow off. I also need to leave myself enough time to load up the car with bottles. I have to make sure I have enough for the girls’ vet appointment on Tuesday. I will probably ask to pick the medicine up on Thursday (the office is closed on Wednesdays). That will be a big load off my mind. With the early Spring this year I want the girls on both heartworm medication and the flea and tick medicine. I think we will need it this year. Normally we don’t worry about it.

My mind really wants to stay home. I am already thinking on the novel and the gardens outside (the weather might be staying warm enough that I can uncover the plants and ground without worrying about them getting too damaged by freezing at night). The packets of seeds that I have are whispering to me….

But I need to get some pictures downloaded for here (and try not to add more to my Picfair account just yet… not enough time). Thanks for reading and stay safe!

  1. You actually wrote that article? The author’s name is pretty funny. A werewolf novel…what is driving you to write that? I’m just curious because I like to hear how people come up with their ideas and on top of that expand ideas to make a whole novel!

    1. Lol. I did write it. I’m glad you enjoyed it. As to the novel I have written several (all unpublished) about werewolves. (I prefer them over vampires.). My ideas just sort of happen. I see something and I think “what if” and go from there. I have been researching werewolves and lycanthropy off and on for several years. The case histories alone are a lot of story fodder. I will try the short story format and if that works great but if it doesn’t then I get to add more information and story. 😁

      1. Thanks for that input. I get these good ideas and think about how the story can go… Then I drop off. I have a whole bunch of stories started. I think what I have to do is write outlines. I started this one story and thought it was really good but I totally forgot how I wanted to have the plot go…it is sitting there now.
