Let’s Have Coffee! #weekendcoffeeshare #amwriting

Thanks for joining me for a hot beverage or iced, if you prefer!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I almost wasn’t going to share coffee with you this week. Not because we’ve had a falling out, but because it was just a regular old week and I was afraid of putting you to sleep despite the caffeine intake.

There was work. And there was me trying to be a book blogger, mostly successfully, and a writer blogger, semi-successfully, and trying to get my lower joints mindful of the uphill climb ahead–getting them healthy for exercise, not successfully.

I don’t know if anyone has any secrets of how to organize time so that you make use of all of your available minutes. I suppose if I wasn’t so easily tempted by tangents, especially when I sit down at the computer to do one thing and then do 20 others before realizing I never did that one thing, I would be better off.

If you were having coffee, I’d talk to you about writing. This past week I’ve had several lovely people talk to me about writing a novel. Some are mystified as to why I haven’t done it yet. If you’ve tried, you know it’s daunting. And I need to be better organized, which I know is just an excuse.

But what isn’t an excuse is time. Aw, maybe that’s an excuse too. Yep, probably an excuse. Maybe it’s time to just stop making excuses. I’ll update you on that.

This week I read some lovely books and some not so lovely books. Of the 7, The Secret History of Us and Once and for All were probably the best, although if you look at my reviews for the week, you’ll see that there were some close runner-ups. If you’re on Goodreads, you can find me here.

I did some writing, although not quite as much as I would have liked. It seems when I’m busy or tired, writing is the first thing that takes a hit, probably because if the words aren’t flowing easily, it takes more out of me to get them on the page. I participated in both Friday Fictioneers and Sunday Photo Fiction. I  love doing the picture prompts and I love reading other writer’s stories too.

Thanks for sharing coffee. Next week, I will be in a different locale so hopefully I’ll have some pics to share. Until then, have a fantastic week and thanks for being a part of my life!

all the best, Sascha

  1. WOW all I can say about that! With the proliferation of books you read, and “life” on top of it, I can see why your a busy woman. I ABSOLUTELY love your writing. You are exceptional and yeah, I would read your book, especially if it’s Mouse which I think you should make into a book. You are an interesting woman, and your writing is equally so. Not to sound mush or anything. Still you add such zest and sense of humour along with feeling. Your characters are real and your writing keeps me wanting and hoping for more. THAT’S a writer!

    1. Thank you, Phyllis. You aren’t alone in thinking that Mouse should be a novel. I’m still trying to figure out if that’s something I could really make happen. I do adore her. She is truly a character.
      Thanks. Your support and comments mean a lot to me.

      1. Awe tyvm. I speak from the heart, there is never placating involved as you are probably aware. I’d seriously read any novel you wrote because it’s that good. One page a day. Seriously. I write one page relating to a short story, then one poem. Takes me usually 15 minutes. I try it out on the blog to see how it carries across. So, if you wrote one page a day, you’d have 365 pages of magnificence in no time.

  2. I read a quote this weekend that I shouldn’t organize my time, but my attention. That’s going to be my focus. I knew that, but seeing it was like WOW. Of course! That makes more sense. So, now to whittle down what doesn’t need my attention as much as the things I say I really want to do……

      1. It’s so obvious and yet it was like a lightbulb for me! Good luck refocusing your attention, too!
