It’s a quiet Saturday morning, what better time to take a breathing moment and look back at my week?
First and foremost, I received my royalty statement. Only sold one copy of my book last month, but that’s okay. I’ll still be donating $25 to Habitat for Humanity, and Steve Lowe signed on to donate his royalties to charity this month, so my HONEOWP initiative is moving forward. I would love, love, love to donate much more than the minimum to Survival International at the end of this month, though, so please consider (1) buying my book, (2) recommending my book to others, (3) spreading the word about this initiative! Talk about it on Facebook or your blog. The more people willing to talk about it, the more people will become aware of the charities being donated to.
Second, I tried an experiment over the last couple of weeks. I wrote a short romance story. Well, it’s short for me, anyway. About 6,000 words. I think it’s pretty good, but I’m waiting for word from my first reader, whose opinion I trust. In the meantime, I’m returning to editing ALWAYS FAITHFUL, trying to figure out what to do with it after I’m done. I’ve had an offer from a couple of friends to read and comment, so once I’m done with my pre-edits, I’ll probably turn to them for help.
Finally, since February is the month for love, I’ve decided to dedicate my posts this month to things I love. Which means at the end of every post, I’m going to list five things I love. This time, I’m going to list five cars I love. Literally love.
1. Corvettes. Any model year except the 90s.
2. Dodge Viper.
3. Camaros! Love the new ones almost as much as the old ones.
4. Lotus. (Obviously.)
5. The Pontiac Firebird Burt Reynolds drove in Smokey and the Bandit. Just that one, and don’t tell anybody.
