The Spring That Never Came




This was the view from my front porch yesterday morning as we readied for church. This feels like the Spring That Never Came.

I saw a post on Facebook that read "This year I hope Summer falls on a Saturday."

In other news, I put together a novella collection idea and sent it off to my lovely agent, and I'm continuing to work on the synopsis of another novel.

Registration for the ACFW conference is now open. Yay! I've been eyeballing all the classes and agents and editors, trying to fine tune the things I want to do and the people I'd like to meet.

What's the weather like where you are, what are you working on, and do you have anything exciting coming up?

  1. And you want me to move to Minnesota? (-;

    1. I do...because this spring, misery loves company...and we can stay inside and talk. :)

  2. What fun to be dreaming up novella ideas. I'm sure they're great.

    Since I want to remain friends, I won't tell you about our weather. I will say that after our dry spell here in the Sierra Foothills, I would be happy to trade you.

    1. I'd gladly give you some moisture for a little bit of your warmth. :)

  3. If it makes you feel better, I miss snow. Where I live, it's a wee bit hot. The Spring That Never Came sounds like a good title for a story!

    1. That would make a fun book title...have to think what story would go with that...

  4. How exciting that you're preparing for the ACFW conference! It's been weird here--weather-wise anyway. Just enough warmth to make us think we're getting Spring and then it snows again for a few days and people are maniacs on the roads. It is, however, giving me an excuse to stay inside and edit a lot, which I need to do anyway. I'm thinking (or wishing, maybe?) that once I'm done editing, the weather will warm up because it knows I want to spend time outside now :)

    1. I registered last night! :) Here it hasn't been warm enough to even fake spring...though it sounds as if this weekend we might make it to spring!

  5. i'm with Keli...I won't share how I've been in flip flops lately. We ARE getting a cold front today to bring it down to the 50's. ;)

    1. Flip Flops? I can't wait to wear my red sandals again. I wear them all summer long.

      I'd even wear them if it was 50 degrees. :)

  7. My condolences! Last year here on Canada's west coast I was muttering about the spring that refused to end. We also had the wettest, coldest June on record, followed by the driest, sunniest fall. Such strange cycles! This year the season seems more normal.

    Novel writing has been limited to short bursts of working on a revision. My main focus has been on creating a textual and pictorial history of our church. I've completed the 1862-1910 period, so still have quite a ways to go!

    Tomorrow my DH and I are travelling to visit family for a long weekend... will be attending a grandbaby's first ballet recital! Should be delightful (or comical). :)
