Weekend Coffee Share

It is Sunday! Let’s meet at a bookstore today shall we? I just finished The Dinner List by Rebecca Serle and I would find the book and show it to you.

If we were having coffee mine would be really strong. I like dark roast and drink it black. What are you having? If we stay a long while I may have a caramel macchiato. I am a sucker for caramel but only treat myself once in while. Today is an occasion for that, don’t you think? The cafe in this bookstore is nice…maybe we can share a scone or a piece of pumpkin or apple pie. I will let you choose.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am really tired. We moved into a new house on September 24th. It was a stressful day and we moved everything in the afternoon and evening. We had our furniture and personal belongings in two separate place but only one truck. She was a beast but we got everything but 2 chairs and a box I cannot find. Those spices are somewhere! I am having trouble resting though. It feels like there is pressure and work everywhere and not a place to wind down.

If we were having coffee I would share with you that I am running again! I ran 10 miles last weekend and I ran 10 miles this weekend! I used to run 60-80 miles a week….I miss some things about those days but not the time that it took. I didn’t hate the last runs so that is positive. The bike trail where I run is picturesque. I know it is called a BIKE trail but the runners know it is really for them. πŸ˜‰

If we were having coffee, we would have to talk about the challenges I particpate in and you might have to tell me that I am overdoing it. So far this year, I did the Two Writing Teachers blog challenge in March, I did Storyaday May, I did Storyaday September and I am planning to do NANOWRIMO in November. Then I would have to confess that I am doing a self imposed challenge combining two word lists – INKTOBER and 31 days of FMF or Five Minute Friday. I am revising some short stories that I am writing but cannot help to keep creating. I dare say it might be my new addiction. DO I need an intervention?

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I started a critique group with some fellow writers from the Storyaday Superstars and I am super excited about it. I really need feedback on the piece I sent to them (I am first) and I am hoping we can help each other become better writers.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I went to my real life writers group last Thursday. I was really proud of the story I took and the group was fascinated with the story separator I used. I must confess it was super cute. ha ha Several people read poems which were really good and another woman read a first person point of view piece about a real person she is making stories up about.

I want to hear about your challenges you are going through – self imposed or not! I want to hear about your hobbies. I want to hear about how you take care of yourself and rest!

  1. I like the structure of this piece. I like the “If” idea. It really started to feel like we were at a bookstore and that I was listening to you tell me about your challenges. It was a nice way to start my day….over a strong cup of coffee, of course.

  2. I love how you set this up. I wish we could meet at a coffee shop in a book store. The hours I spent at Barnes & Noble– even BAM’s cafe was better than nothing. 😦 Your energy motivates me! Maybe I should participate in NANOWRIMO? Something to think about.
