This week, the weather has been a little more interesting than the last few. We're getting some rain now and goodness knows we need it. It's been humid but the rain keeps going around our area. There's a bayou we cross on our way to church. It's got a small dam in it and when we're getting enough rain, you can't see the little barrier. Lately, it's been showing far too long. Scum is building up on the surface of the water it holds back.
I'm looking forward to the storms they are predicting for this week. Hopefully, they'll cool things off a little. Our whole family went through the courses to become advanced certified storm spotters. For probably a year, there's been nothing in our area of note -- just the normal sort of rain shower. I guess that's probably a good thing economically. It's just a bad thing for people like my husband who have a passion for storm photography. Last night was the first close thunderstorm and we're hoping more will follow over the weekend. I'll share a photo at the end of a cell I snapped a shot of two days ago. (It dissipated before it got to us.)
So if you wondered what an author does besides writing... This particular author does a lot of things. How could there be the possibility of writing well otherwise? LOL On to the challenge!
#MayLitWrit Day 23 - Favorite First Line
I had to dig for a while before finding a first line I felt comfortable sharing. There is so much work to do on Over Land & Under Stone. I'm looking forward to it but I can't even touch it right now. If I'm going to knock out that short story before July, it takes precedence. Anyone else have writer problems like this?
This little cell was kicking up some serious wind and I think I saw a tropical funnel over toward the west side. But with all the trees in the way, it was difficult to be certain. It was pretty impressive to look at, though.
