WHAT I’M READING
Working my way (still) through Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. I’ll reserve judgement until I’m finished, but I think I can safely say this book will not end up on my top reads of the year list.
WHAT I’M WRITING
I’m a third of the way through my JULES rewrite!!!
And once I reach the halfway point, it’ll be mostly revising existing scenes, and I feel like I can see the end in sight! My original goal was to be done with my draft by the end of the year, but it may be as soon as Halloween.
*excited, happy dance*
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
Rescuing lost puppy dogs. My husband was outside Saturday morning and saw this guy:
He was running into the street, so hubs brought him inside. There was a collar, but no tags, so I called the animal shelter and gave a description and then I posted a pic on my Facebook page
In the meantime, we played catch with the dog.
The humans grew tired, but the puppy didn’t have an off-switch.
But that was okay, because through the magic of Facebook shares, we were able to find his owners within a few hours. The little guy had only wandered about half a mile, but he’d crossed a really busy street in the process. Thank goodness for luck and alert drivers.
In a strange coincidence, on the same day, and several states away, one of my cousins also found a lost dog.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
He’s totally going to make fun of me for saying this, but my husband does. The man is like a magnet for lost animals; I guess because they know instinctually he will take care of them. He’s a good guy, that husband of mine.
