Garden plot has moved me away from the good NaNoWriMo group at Waves Coffee downtown to a place near garden… Black Sheep Coffee. Nice spot and I’m typing outside now, watching trees across the street and hearing loads of Dunbar Street traffic.
But I saw that I have at least one 2-leafed plant coming up in my 4 beds. It’s progress.
I was reminded that you need to keep working at something to succeed this week, by the garden. You plant and tend for a long time before you harvest. There is a Japanese saying, I’m told that expresses how art is attained:
Got this blog Google verified tonight. Not that hard to do. Working on writing a lot lately even though the day job is being stubbornly time consuming. I don’t mind 40 hours a week, but 60 recalls the bad old days of film & TV…
Accomplishments this week
Finished first draft of a new story and sent it to my beta reader.
Found out about another Polar Borealis upcoming poem publication.
Got a very nice rejection from Strange Horizons.
Sent out my On Spec and Tesseracts 22 submissions. These are important Canadian publications to be in and I hope I make it in!
Sent out another short story that is a hard one to get published. Unlike a lot of authors, I find my comic stories easier to sell than the more tragic ones.
Getting my own garden plot and going to first meeting about it.
Planted some more early flowers on balcony. I have a few 2 leaf plants now from last week’s early attempt. The petunias didn’t come up but the mixed hardy wildflowers had a few sprout!
Hyacinths almost done but were great! Street is full of cherry blossoms!
Enjoyed an hour at Southlands Nursery and bought way too much for a balcony and a small garden plot.
Emailed Garden Manager to see if I can have another plot.
