Friday Fare: 11/2/2018

NOVEMBER!  I was AWOL for much of October – nothing nefarious, just a combination of work deadlines, personal deadlines, and not a whole lot to say.  But I’m back!  And I have some fresh new links for you all to read through:

^^ I can’t understate what Sesame Street meant to me growing up and how it felt to watch my old friends when my kids were younger (and weren’t seduced / entranced by weird Netflix anime offerings.)  I am grateful for Caroll Spinney – there will never be anyone else like him in this world.

Heroes can be found in some unexpected places.  And given the skewed moral compass we’re seeing in this world today, this piece brought me some much needed hope.

Random recipe link … I’m loving the idea of just one pan meals and meal prep is essential to my overall life.  (And this got me into loving sweet potatoes. #winning)

By the way – you’ll read this before November 6th.  So if you are an American and can vote – what are you waiting for?  Please make your voice heard on November 6th!

Just a random overall life update: Part of the reason I’ve been silent over the past month is that I’ve been heads down working on edits to “Dragonfly.”  And oh man, friends … I am close. I think I’m doing one last edit before I send out to one more beta reader and going to engage the services of an independent editor who spent some time at one of the major publishing houses that reps mysteries.  I’m hoping that Q1 of 2019 will find me querying agents.

Also – it’s November! The beginning of NaNoWriMo (where participants aim to write 50,000 words over the course of November.). I’m not participating this year, but I have good friends who are – if you’re amongst that crew of dreamers – GOOD LUCK!  I’m wishing you fat words counts and speedy, coherent writing.

With love and gratitude,

Shelley

 

What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
