Summer has Arrived

Summer has arrived in Lake Havasu City. Temps were over 100 most of last week. Down to the high 90s this week.

Nothing exciting last week. Still working on my Malie novel. I’m really getting into the characters and a twist in the plot is becoming clear. Again more research. It is about six miles from Dawson City to Midnight Dome, a beautiful cliff above the city. One of the character is out riding and I needed to know how far a horse can trot in about an hour. Seems like maybe a mile if you stop occasionally and let the horse walk.

Spent Saturday with my nephew Zach and his wife Bobbi. Love them to piece. Bobbi is very clever with her cooking and canning skills. She bought me a couple of white cups and using some sort of a decal she was able to add some wording to the cups. One reads ‘I’m a writer. Anything you say or do may be used in my novel’ and the other one has two sayings. One is ‘Can’ talk now, my characters are talking to me.’ The other us ‘Can’t talk now, my characters are talking about you.’ I just love them and I love Bobbi for making them.

That’s about it for this week. Let me leave you with this quote by Bruce Lee. “Cease negative chattering…Pessimism blunts the tools you need to succeed.”
