This Too Shall Pass

In central Pennsylvania, we've seen the sun for about two hours this week. It didn't rain EVERY minute. Sometimes it was only a constant mist or dark gloom.. And the wind! The sun is supposed to make an appearance today. I might actually be happy to mow the grass as that will mean it has finally dried up a bit. Sorry, I'm complaining about the weather. You know you'll have to put up with my whining about the cold all winter. Anything but sunshine isn't my thing.

This quote seemed appropriate for the day though I usually pick something from JRR Tolkien that has to do with writing.
Darkness must pass,
A new day will come,
And when the sun shines,
It will shine out the clearer.

And from the Old Farmer's Almanac:
The best thing to hold onto in life is each other. Audrey Hepburn
He who goes to bed hungry, dreams of pancakes. Maltese proverb

Weekend plans are to catch up on some outside yard work and do some actual writing. I've had to many other things going on lately that limited my time on my WIP. And if time permits I'm writing an article for my local writers' group newsletter.

Musa Publishing is celebrating their 3 year anniversary tonight from 7 PM to 9 PM EST. Take a chance to win lots of eBooks and a Kindle Paper White. All you have to do is visit their Facebook page. Musa is the publisher who had contracted my epic fantasy series, The Futhark Chronicles. So far I've been very, very impressed with the professionalism and efficiency of Musa. I'm excited about working with them. Drop by their celebration tonight and meet some of their authors.

Did that massive storm system hit your abode this week? Ever dream of pancakes? What are you working on this weekend or are you just enjoying some sunshine?


  1. Is the pancake dream like the noodle dream?
    We had one day of that rain but that was it.

  2. This weekend I am planning to work on my WIP. Need to add back story and character details.

  3. I think you know I live in Florida... and we are very lucky that it is sunny here most of the time. We did get a couple hours of bad weather as the storm front moved through here on Tuesday. Other than that... it's been a lovely week.

    I am gaining on my WiP... I think. That means, if I'm right, I will soon be querying and all that jazz. Never done that before... scary!

  4. We lived in upstate NY for a while, so I totally feel for you. I remember we'd get one sunny day every two weeks, and it was killing me. Then me moved to Florida. I'm wishing you more sun in the coming days!

  5. Rainy here today, but had a few sunny days. Yep, the cold surely sucks a ton.

  6. We are having a beautiful fall here in Colorado. It's in the 70's with sunshine. But I know winter is coming…duh, duh, DUH.

    Have a great weekend.

  7. I have dreamed of pancakes before! More often, it's cookies. My subconscious knows what I like. :) After some family fun time, I hope to do some writing. Have a lovely weekend.

  8. We're in central BC, and it's been raining off and on for 2 weeks. It's suppose to continue until the 24th. I wouldn't mind, except the wind comes up and drops more leaves on the grass. Did I mention I've raked the same acre 2x now? LOL. Pancakes... yes!

    Happy anniversary, Muse!

  9. I pray for rain weekly. Anything to save on the water bill to water the garden. :)

    But too much of anything is never a good thing. Hope you dry out soon.

  10. I'm not a fan of sunshine in the slightest, so I'll gladly take your weather, haha!
