If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this has been another incredibly busy week! Little Jedi is better and running on his usual 12 cylinders, and I’m feeling better in most all capacities—except I hurt my lower back yesterday while I was bathing the pup. Whoops! The new stool we have (because I was clumsy and broke the other) is taller than the other, and it is apparently *not* a good height for sitting down to bathe him. And then my normally docile patient doggy tried to climb out of the tub during his bath, earning him a reprimand and leaving me soaking wet! Ah well.
I’d tell you that I’ve done quite a lot of reading and writing this week—in fact, that has really been the bulk of what I’ve been up to. I’ve started working on the next cycle of grants for the nonprofit. We’re hoping to apply for a few with deadlines in June, so I’ll be doing quite a bit of grant work over the next few weeks in preparation. I was able to attend a really great class on writing more effective and applications earlier this month, and I’m hoping to put that information to good use!
But my writing and reading haven’t been confined just to nonprofit work! I’ve also been doing a lot of work on Part-Time Monster and completing other writings, too! At the beginning of the week, I published a post about the Abita Mystery House and Unusual Collections Museum at Eclectic Alli. It was a lot of fun to share my excursion with Allison’s readers for the A to Z Challenge! On Thursday, I published my first post at a new blog that I’m very excited to be a part of, Field of Letters. FoL is a collaborative blog dedicated to publishing women’s writing on all sorts of issues; my first piece published there is about the Things My Woman Card Has Gotten Me. And on Friday, I had an interview with Natacha Guyot published at her blog for her SciFi Women Interviews.
The rest of the week was really busy writing posts to finish up the A to Z Blogging Challenge, which comes to an end today. I managed to catch up with everyone else, so I’ll be posting about my last witchy woman today. Well, the last one for the challenge, anyway! I’m sure there’ll be more witches who show up in posts here, especially for Monster Mondays! In the coming weeks, I’ll also be returning the blog to a more normal schedule. You’ll see fewer posts here, with Monster Mondays and coffee shares continuing–and hopefully the return of feminist Fridays!
If we were having coffee, I would turn the conversation over to you now, I think! ❤
