Fall is officially here. It started around 4:21 AM in my part of the world. Today we're supposed to have equal parts day and night or very close to it. The days have been getting shorter and very soon, they'll be much shorter. I don't like the colder temperatures on their way, but I do get more writing done when the sun isn't calling me to go outside. Want to know how much daylight you're losing? Check out this chart.
September's birthstone, the sapphire, was once thought to protect the wearer from snakes. I know snakes are a common fear for lots of people so think about getting a pretty sapphire ring or bracelet maybe. Or better, an ankle bracelet.
The first episodes of Blindspot and Minority Report intrigued me so I'll be watching them again. And Limitless deserves a chance too. Notice how many of the shows I like have supernatural or science fiction elements? Add to Doctor Who, Grimm, and Once Upon a Time to the list and you'll see I have a favorite theme.
Hopefully, all of my fellow Americans are braced for the next fourteen months of election overload. This quote is something to keep in mind when listening to politicians.
"Man does not live by words alone, despite the fact that the sometimes has to eat them."
I hope you're working on your short story for inclusion in the IWSG anthology. Deadline is November 1st. Read the guidelines.
My publisher has made another of my space opera romance series into a boxed set available on Amazon. All three Warriors of Gaviron books are at one reasonable price so I'm hoping it kicks up some sales.
Any new shows catch your eye this week? Dreading the shorter days? Bracing for endless political ads?
