Mid Summer Blues


Camy

355 views

I get really depressed for a couple of days each side of mid summer. Don't get me wrong, I love summer, the long seemingly endless days ... it's just now the days are getting shorter, and we're heading slowly downhill into winter... and I loath winter: especially in the UK. Snow I like a lot, but cold drizzle, cutting winds and bugger all daylight - at least when I get up. You can keep winter. Oh, and it's true: The grass is always greener elsewhere.

 

I'm working on an entry for the 'Summer Anthology'. Ten thousand words just isn't enough, and now I have three stories, all need finishing ... sometime, and still no entry. ;)

 

Anyway. I came to the conclusion that a short story requires considerably more planning than a serial, and now I have notes. :) Yup: Perhaps they'll help; perhaps I'll have four stories that need finishing and no entry. Who knows.

 

At least mid summer is over and done with.

I cant wait for your anthology entry....I bet it's gonna rule. i sent mine off to Kitty already, but I was waiting for her to get back to me about a couple of parts I wasn't too sure about. I decided to be a little risky, and I wanted an honest and impartial opinion. So I hope she gets back to me soon...

 

 

In the meanwhile, I hope you feel better, Camy. It's summer :) Maybe you can go surfing or something like that. I've been body surfing a lot lately because my bf's in Tennesse visiting his mom. It helps to keep my mind off of how bad I miss him

Hey Camy!

 

I'm also really looking forward to reading your entry! I'm so sorry you had a down couple of days, but at least the midsummer is over now :)

 

Take care and feel better!

Hey Camy....

despite being a member since april 2006, I'm still a newbie and have just open my blog. If you open it and look "about me", you will see my age : 77. Not joking. I'm born June 10th 1929 and had the "pleasure" to enjoy the hard times of World war II and also the funny times of Woodstock and the "peace and love" of the sixtees.

Tell me : are you really 99 ? You could tell my about World War I ?

Im really interested.

Thanks Nick, though I've got to finish it first. Honestly it's giving me a lot of gyp. This writing malarky's much harder than I ever thought it would be. :wacko:

I read somewhere there are 20 entries?... Unless I was dreaming. Anyway, Kitty - wonderous person she is - is going to soooo busy!

I'm fine now, and it's only around midsummer. I know it's stupid really, but that's my brain for you.

Surfing's good, but even though I live near the sea I haven't surfed in a while. No wet suit, and the surf around here is weency... I really, really REALLY want to try kite surfing though :2thumbs: but it's expensive.

Sorry Bob, I'm not 99. But neither am I 20, 25 or even 30. I am just me.

Woodstock must have been a blast!

 

Thanks for the comments everyone.
