Oh well, it’s not like I don’t have writing to do. Here’s what I finished this week:
Jul 16: “Flights of Fiction” By Author Members of
Western Ohio Writers Association (WOWA). Blurb on back: An Anthology of
Short Stories set in Southwestern Ohio. In
2008, a group of authors in , got together for the sole
purpose of ripping each other to shreds, leaving behind the mangled hopes of
promising scribes who lay finally broken and decaying on the floor. After that,
robbed of all dignity, they went out for coffee and decided to write a book.
Here it is. Pull up a comfy chair and lose yourself in eleven original stories
set in and around the southwest Dayton,
region. Written by just a few of the talented authors from the WOWA, these
soon-to-be classic tales let you follow one man’s tragic story at the end of
the world in “Dead of Winter;” experience a night at the National Museum of the
United States Air Force in “Nose Art;” and get lost in a haunting image from
the past in “Tabitha’s Portrait,” plus many more. From detective tales to a
trek into the mysterious world of wrestling, Flight of Fiction has something
for everyone. Yes, I belong to this writers group, but I didn’t
submit anything for this anthology. My favorites in this collection were from Liz
Coley, Lynda Sappington, LD Masterson, and Bill Bicknell. It is an eclectic
bunch of stories, that’s for sure. I gave this book 3 stars on Goodreads. Ohio
Washer repairman came yesterday. Timer is bad ($125 part), but has to be ordered (of course). At least I’m not damaging the washer if I want to manually move the dial. Good to know. I really did NOT want to go to the Laundromat.
Tomorrow looks to be a hot day to spend at The Wilds. Sure hope my first day at age **mumble, mumble** isn’t my last day because I died of heat stroke! Guess that’s the chance you take in life, huh? Time to go find the sun screen and water. Yes, lots of water.
So, have you ever had a bug fly into your eye? Not a pleasant experience, is it?
(turning **mumble, mumble** years old TOMORROW!)
