Jeanne's Fall Break
I woke up this morning with three things on my mind—
1. It was cold in the bedroom. Feels like fall. Days of sleeping with the windows open are over.
2. Got to get ready for my trek tomorrow up to Fairplay for the semi-annual writers’ retreat. Three days of nothing but writing and eating. What’s not to love?
3. It’s the first day of October—where has the year gone?
Wait. It’s October 1st. It’s THURSDAY October 1st.
I don’t have a blog…how could I not have a blog? I’ve been doing this for a couple of years. How could Thursday have snuck up on me so completely that I forgot to do a blog?
Am I getting old?
Who am I kidding? I AM old. Mario reminds me of that all the time.
Have I been so busy working on a new project that an old one like the blog slipped my memory?
No. In fact, I kind of took September off from writing to recover from travel and the travails of a book release.
So what’s my excuse?
I don’t have one. Just like I don’t have a blog for this week. So I’m going to do what every good slacker worth her salt would do—I’m going to turn it back on YOU.
So—I’m giving you all an assignment. Tell me what interesting things caught your attention this week. Reviews of new fall shows. Books you read. Something in the newspaper. A trip to see fall color. Have you had a good writing week? How many words/pages did you write?
The stage is yours. Let’s consider this like Jeanne’s blog vacation week. You furnish the subjects and we’ll all comment.
Oh, I do have one thing to mention. Monday Mario is the featured artist at Denver’s First Monday Art Talk. For you locals, it will be a chance to see how truly gifted this guy is. Since he never reads MY blog entries, I can say with certainty that he won’t find out I paid him such a complement. And if you tell him that I said it, I’ll deny it. Anyway, follow this Westword Link

Now have at it….write the blog!
