The morning walk to the bus stop was...wow. Even more incredible than yesterday--flocks of seagulls (one small one I counted as 19, most far larger) all streaming along northward, most quiet, a few crying out. Under the drab grey sky and the cool air, it was easy to believe I was near some gorgeous corner of the North Shore. Quite strange for the Twin Cities, though if the oncoming storm manifests, then it will be more explicable. (seagulls were my best blizzard indicators in my college years ;)

     Despite a steadily swelling stomach-ache and plenty of distractions, had a great writing session tonight. Book 4, chapter 19, is DONE!

Emotional Status:
sick Want new stomach ;)

*gasp* This is what I get for going AWOL - Book 4?!!! Ei! Congratulations on breaking through on that!

Seagulls as blizzard indicators? *snickers* If that was the case here, we'd be in so much trouble. I've been watching a lot of birds of late, too. Actually saw a buzzard wheeling over the garden the other day - gorgeous.

Sorry to hear about your stomach ache, hope it improves.

*hugs* Thanks! It was March 31 I finally got a-rolling again. I'm hoping to squeeze a few more chapters out before summer stops me.

Yeah, but you're just a wee bit closer to the ocean than I am. ;)

What I 'like' about stomach aches is that mine never last overnight--same thing for headaches. =)

You've done well then. Usually when I have a stomach ache I can't think of anything else! Hope you feel better soon.

Same here! If it starts up before writing, the writing gets scrubbed. But I was on a roll and determined to finish the scene/chapter...just wasn't moving very fast at the end! And it's gone--my stomach aches never last from one day to the next.

It was beautiful this morning--still dark out, and the cardinal was belting his lungs out, very nearby. What a treat.

That is something with the seagulls. What a treat for you.

I am so happy for the progress with book 4. I pray it continue and the weather stays
cool enough for your writing.

It was really beautiful.

I've got a three-day weekend this weekend (taking Monday off) so I'm looking forward to lots of progress. And seeing as they're talking as much as 10 inches of snow--I guess I don't have to worry about heat! (just flooding)
