I Did It All For The Book(y)!



(Yeah, I know. That blog post title barely works. Let's pretend I'm clever, K?)

"August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time." ~Sylvia Plath






Hello Friends,

How are you? How is your summer? I hope this finds you happy, healthy, writing the magic.






I've been busy lately researching for my next novel, enjoying the last days of summer before my kid goes back to school, back-to-school-shopping, pinning on Pinterest (it's like crack!) (if you want to check it out you can follow my link on my sidebar...but essentially it is a place to make inspiration, story, idea, etc. boards in an easy organized fashion), drinking margaritas, reading in the sunshine, doing another round of 'roids because the asthma came back, reading/critiquing for others, etc. 
Blogging? Um, well, not so much. Sorry. *blushes* But I'm back. *waves*


Oh, and yesterday I was watering my flowers and the earth started shaking (not gonna break out in AC/DC song). It felt like I was on a boat. (still not gonna break out in rap/song) That was...unexpected. I haven't felt a single earthquake since living on the east coast. Now the hurricane is coming. I like storms. I've lived through plenty of hurricanes. I like writing in storms. Thus, I hope to have a good writerly weekend. 


Speaking of writing, Rachael Harrie (at Rach Writes)  is organizing another author platform building connection campaign


(not calling it a Crusade this year)
 (I'm very parenthetical today for some reason. Sorry.)

 It's a wonderful way to meet lots of other writers. You can find out more about the campaign--how it works, what to expect--> here
But, HURRY, you only have until August 31st to join, then the list is closed. 

How is YOUR summer and writing going? 



And, remember...BE FEARLESS!! I believe in you. 




Love,




Lola

About Me

Lola Sharp
My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
