My Week in Review and Writing Links

Hello everyone. Happy Friday. Well, it’s the middle of November, and the year is racing away from us. I swear time has grown jet engines. Maybe that’s a sign of getting older too. I remember as a kid, the school summer holidays seemed to last forever …

More slow-and-steady writing done this week. I’m having to take extra care as I have a painful arm and shoulder from an old injury that is playing up again. Despite exercises and physio, it seems determined to get worse. Smooth supermarket floors, squashed grapes, and walking with crutches are not a great combination. Now, years later, I’m revisiting that torn muscle. Not fun. At least, as I wrote last week, I can still manage 500 words a day. Always a silver lining! 🙂 … And I’m REALLY enjoying this first draft.

Here are this week’s writing resources. Have a great weekend, everyone 🙂

I couldn’t agree more about how fast time is flying. It seems that each day I get up, have my coffee and breakfast, turn around and it’s time to go to bed and start all over. Hope your aches and pains go away in the coming days, Harmony, and congrats on the word count accomplishment.

Wishing you fast writing and faster healing.

It must be aging, because we’re all feeling time racing by. Take care of yourself.

Joan Hall

Harmony, I agree about the time passing at warp speed. Every year seems to get shorter.

I’m sorry you’ve been having problems, I and hope you feel better soon.

D.L. Finn

I agree time seems to be flying by– and with engines. Hope your shoulder heals and you enjoy your weekend.

Excellent links, Harmony. Thank you. I to do not know where the year has gone.

Time definitely has “grown jet engines.” We’re in the clutches of winter, and I still wonder about summer. Do take care of your arm and shoulder, Harmony. So much life is ahead of you.♥
