August Writing Challenges: Day 30 - My Sincerest Apologies
I do have the guest room finished, or as close to finished as I'm going to get right now. I'm also working on the backyard, creating flower beds and gardens. My favorite garden I'm working on is the Fairy Garden, which will provide me with a Spiritual Space, calming space, and a place to meditate. You can see more at Vicki's Fairy Garden and Spiritual Space
Soon, I'll provide pictures of what I have finished now. As of the moment, I'm unable to move as I worked to hard over the weekend and today to get all the plants potted in the ground that were becoming an emergency.
I've also been collecting things around the house and outdoors to create accessories for the Fairy Garden, including Fairy Houses.
It's a fun diversion. My husband thinks it's an obsession.
And, to top it off, it was my dog's 13th birthday on the 28th. We go all out on our pets' birthdays - carrot cake slice for Jack, new toys for Bailey, toys, party hats, the whole she-bang!
So, what I'm going I'm going to do, is give you a list of books that will provide you with challenges, writing prompts, exercises and overall help with your writing.
If you require help or have a question, please don't hesitate to contact me.
And for the heck of it, a friend sent this image I used at the top, and I thought it would bring a smile to your face.
