april already!

Today’s the official start of my garden as well as Camp Nano. I’ve been busy, busy all day and I’ve not written word one. Went off to buy plants–Marvin’s is having its Spring Black Friday Sale through the weekend, offering 6-pack veggie plants at 2 for $5.00. Couldn’t miss that plus great deals on garden soil and wood planks, and I needed compost too. I bought heirloom tomatoes, spinach, yellow squash, watermelon, a strawberry plant, and bell peppers. Found a sunny patch near my shed and planted the tomatoes this morning. The potted thyme and oregano have sprouted  and the cantaloupe and arugula need transplanting to the yard so April is going to be a mixed bag of writing and gardening. Yes!

It’s also time for the quarterly progress report, but don’t have it together yet. The month just started and already I’m under the bus. Have to do my April spread bullet journal too.

Spring has turned my backyard into a meadow of all sorts of wild blossoms–lavender bells, little pinks, miniature yellows, and a violet lily that seems to be everywhere–don’t know the names of these various pretties but they are a delight to the eyes.

I was so pooped after planting the tomatoes that gathering one creative word brought on a fainting spell. :)) But I’m rested and ready now so let’s see if anything new happens in the book–A Fall of Diamonds is my Camp Nano project. I’m aiming to write 20,000 words during April. I slashed more than 20,000 words during March, started to rewrite it in first person, went back to third person, apart from having pulled out my hair, I’m okay.

Happy writing!

  1. I just planted my garden, too! Tomatoes, zucchini, peppers and eggplant. Already have lettuce, chard, herbs, and beets growing. Fighting the durn black aphids that are eating my onions. Argh!
