Day 4 has arrived, and has brought with it another Heat Advisory from the National Weather Service.- the index is supposed to reach 105 some time this afternoon, which means I'll have another excuse to hit the pool.
Even though I barely cleared the 1000 word a day hurdle for the novel, I felt good about those words. There was a new character introduced, and along with his introduction, I propelled one of the themes of the story. I took my time and plotted out how that double edged introduction should be handled and ended up with a damn good passage; even if I say so myself.
Also, I took the time to sketch out the bones for my next sonnet to be published at EWN. This next poem will most likely be very close to conventional, as far as the structure and theme of a typical sonnet is concerned. Then there was the matter of extended 'me' time at the pool, reading poetry written by Paul Laurence Dunbar.
Today- the sky is a hazy blue, with the only cloud being a touch of a brush tip dabbed in off-white. I hear Zep playing on the deck, I feel the brats in the fridge, my Nook is at hand, and the mercury is rising.
Danger, Will Robinson!
How is your day going so far?
