I don’t have a regular day to post here at Cathy C. Hall. I just post when I’ve got something to say that may or may not be interesting. So I was kinda surprised when this day came along and I was just posting all over the place…
If you’re looking for how I can take one of my favorite sports and connect it to writing, then you’ll want to check out The Muffin and “If You Want To Succeed in Writing, You’ve Got To Play Ball!” I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty impressed with my ability to take something that I have frittered away hours and hours upon and make something instructional out of it. Although, it wasn’t really me so much as the quote from…well, just give it a read and then you can let me know whether I struck out or hit a home run. (See what I did there? Lots more where that came from!)
And then writer and author Kathryn Schleich is celebrating National Volunteer Week and asked if she could use one of my Muffin posts on the subject and I was pleased to say yes! So if you want to see which post (hint: it’s about volunteering), head over here and take a look. And tour her site for some wonderful writing resources!
And speaking of volunteering, I manage the SCBWI Southern Breeze blog, sometimes writing posts and sometimes
forcing asking very politely for volunteers to write up something. So if you’re in the Southern Breeze region (Georgia, Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle), go see what’s happening in our region. We’d love for you to join us anywhere in SCBWI but if you’re around here, then we can be new BFs!
Whew! I think that’s enough posting for the day, don’t you?
Every time I see that picture I get the shivers!
I have to admit–and I have had a lot of snakes in the last 25 years here–that was a BIG one, Pat!
Hmmm, did you get rid of the snake by: throwing ginzu knives at it, or
maybe getting a power washer hose and blasting it off the deck, or
holding the bristle end of a broom, slipping the smallest possible piece of the stick under said snake and tossing it over the railing, or
calling Junior Hall to come over pronto and do something with said snake? I vote for the power washer.
Hugs, Gail and Pip
Ha! No, Gail, I could call Junior Halls but they’d just laugh. I got my broom and my phone (to take pictures) and swept it off the deck. (I’ve had a lot of practice. Mister Man HATED snakes and always hid in the house–upstairs–till I got rid of whatever snake happened to be around.)
Goodness sakes, a SNAKE! You are the busiest writer I know. Heading to the Muffin.
Post as often as you like, cuz I read ’em all! Heading over to The Muffin now.
P.S. We’ve been seeing a lot of black snakes here the last few weeks. I guess it’s that time of year. Ugh!!!
Yep, the snakes are waking up, Lisa! Keep an eye out!
I hope your burneded down house, or at the very least, your deck to take care of that snake problem. 🙂 EEGAD!
