Happy Thursday!
August is looking a bit busy for me--no summer vacation, but two book manuscripts due...my own and a textbook I'm co-editing.
So, remember ladies & gents, before embarking on any project, build up your strength with tea:
{first tea}
& then remember that often, for the creative juices to work, you sometimes need to stop thinking and let go for a bit: 
{let go}
Easier said than done, especially when you've got deadlines. And...it's so very easy to procrastinate when you've got writing to do...but the best advice is also just to sit down and get a start. and most importantly, remember that there will be edits, and more edits, and more edits.

On another note, I painted the shed, the garden seat and the kitchen door on the weekend. The best thing about painting is it has an immediate result--unlike a book which can take you years to write and you feel like you're never going to see the end of it(!)

What do you think of the new paint colour??? It's Cuprinol's muted clay

 The fence needs painting, & I want to put some grass down, but that's for another summer!
