Six Sentences on Sunday

sixsentences~~ Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project —published, in progress, for your cat — whatever. ~~

An addition to “survive” from April Camp.

She stills. The fact that she doesn’t say anything tells him it’s been a long time. He lost track after the first few days. He looks away when he figures she isn’t going to answer. He stares at the wall again wishing she would finish and go away. Then seconds later wishing she would stay because he’s not sure he can make it another five seconds without her to ground him to this reality.

Happy Birthday Owen

My oldest son turned 16 today. He wants to get a job so he can save up to take driver’s ed. Not ready for this.



(taken on the first day of school last month)

Look how tall he is? Almost to the top of the garage door! Getting close to 6’1″.


October Goals

Recap from September:

Reading: Seven of 18 books read. Progress, but not much. D+
Writing: Well, I did my writing but not so much with the NaNo prep. C
Finishing/EditingF+ Because I added words to an April story.
PostingPosted nothing.

That C sort of pulls the grade up, but the Fs ruin everything. Going to have to go with D for the month again.

October Goals:


  • read three books to make up for missing July’s goals
  • read four books to make up for missing August’s goals
  • read four books to make up for missing September’s goals
  • read four books for October goals to catch up with my Goodreads challenge


  • finish reviews for each book read


  • write every day in my writing journal/keep my streak going
  • write at least 100 words each day
  • work on prepping for NaNo
  • have a working outline for NaNo


  • edit something… anything
  • finish a story


  • post one fanfic from July
