The Week in Review

Pink iris (Iris Carden Author logo) Caption reads: "The Week in Review."

What I’ve been Writing

Photo of a plate of food, with the caption "Veggie sausages in a gluten free bread roll."

Sunday: Dietary Limitations

One of the issues that comes with chronic illness is that it affects what you can eat. I usually find it easier to just eat what doesn’t make me sick.

Three teddy bears in a shop window with "Bear Essentials" written over the window.  Caption reads: "The sign said 'Bear Essentials' and the window was full of bears."

Monday: Bear Essentials

Cara, at Bear Essentials, knows the value of a good teddy-bear. Sometimes that value isn’t money.

Drawing of volcano erupting.  Caption reads :"The mountain was no longer friendly."

Tuesday: Friendly Mountain

Living all of her life on the side of the mountain, Emily had always thought of it as friendly.

Drawing of a sea turtle in a reef.  Caption reads: "You've swum the ocean currents for sixty years or more."

Wednesday: Turtle Song

A poem about sea turtles, and their environment.

Drawing of the a small round window at the top of a house during a storm. Caption reads: "Sophie loved her little attic room."

Thursday: Storm

Sophie loved her little attic room, where she could read her books away from the world.

Photo of Fanta, a brindle Staffordshire bull terrier (staffie), and Princess, a seal-point ragdoll cat, along with a laptop computer, all squeezed on a human's lap.  Caption reads, "Fanta was already on the human's lap, so I got up too."

Friday: Helping

The writing buddies have this helping thing totally under control.

Saturday: Saving Octavius

In Chapter 10 of my work in progress, the children are finally able to leave the Void behind, and go home.

Confession time: between medical stuff for both myself and my dog, I haven’t had time for reading this week. Will try to find some interesting things to share next week.
