Sunday Salon for 17 September — 14 Comments

  1. I’m with you on not liking to be in crowds, though our big, crowded event is an art fair that’s actually kind of fun. We also have giant crowds for the football games, but I never go to sporting events. What’s your festival?

    best, mae at

  2. I’m not ready for fall to arrive yet! I’m going to stay here in denial as long as possible, thank you very much.

    Good luck on your novel. Looks like you’ve put in the hard work already, so you can focus on the writing part now.

  3. I’m happy that we can watch PBS any time we want. Most of my favorite shows these days are on PBS.

    I love your visual representation of your novel. I will share the photo you took with my writing buddies, and maybe we can figure out how to do the same with our novels.

  4. I watch PBS via something called “passport”. I give $5 per month to my state PBS, and can watch anything on the station. Have just watched the latest Unforgotten. Intense, but good as always.

    • Yes. Passport, a benefit of membership in my local PBS station, is why I have so much access to PBS content. The app on our new streaming device allows me to watch it on the TV as well as my computer.

      Good to know that the new season of Unforgotten worked for you. Season 4 was such a heartbreaker that I was worried about diving in again.

  5. While I enjoy fall leaves and the brisk air, I do still love a warm sunny day so am not quite ready for fall to arrive in full force. 🙂 It looks like you’ve done a lot of planning on the novel – I hope you enjoy the writing process going forward.

  6. I love the story board for your book writing. Do you find it works better than what you were doing before? Love your commitment too. These days when everyone has such busy lives, carving out an hour a day for yourself can be challenging. Have a great week!

    • Yes! It got me to really think through the scenes in a way that makes me confident that I have a complete story. My downfall in novel-writing seems to be that I’m good at coming up with the first half but fall down when I get to the second half.
