Once again it's time for Three Thing Thursday, where I share a minimum of three thoughts and with any luck you will too. These days I don't have much exciting to report, so I truly look forward to hearing from y'all.
1. These pictures were taken from Beachland, the historic home I wrote about back in November/December. (Click here and here for more details.) Gloria, the current owner, asked me to stop by for a visit, and I was glad to get out of the house and spend some time over there. We talked briefly about the need to get crackin' on some sort of a novel or book, and hopefully I'll get back there more often in the warmer months to jump start my creative process and get something started.
2. Speaking of jump starting a creative process, I haven't even felt like going out to take pictures these days much less start another project like a book. However, I need to do another book. Don't ask me why I use the word need but I feel compelled to do one. A bigger and better one. Way better. The problem is (and perhaps this is because of the Winter Blahs) I lack even the most meager fleck of motivation or inspiration. I don't even know what I want to write about. A history book or a fictional novel? A coffee table book of photographs (how easy this would be! but who will publish it?) or a book about the magical healing powers of the crab hat? A compilation of ridiculous stories I've told over the course of this blog with my quirky style and weak attempts at humor? A combination of some of the above? A fictional story with historical facts and a few pictures? I don't know. Any ideas? Anyone? Bueller?
3. Tonight and tomorrow night Chesapeake Bay Daughter has basketball games. I adore watching her play, she is really something else and I'm not just saying that because I'm her mother. Really. If there is one thing I know it's that girl can play some basketball.
Now it's your turn. Please share three things. No rules, just share whatever you want. Tell me something. Anything. If you can't think of anything, give me some ideas for blog posts and books.
Thanks for reading and (hopefully) participating.
