The Newest Novel Racers and a Storm

My apologies for slacking off, but the two newest novel racers are up. Check out the link to the left called "Competitors' Sites" - The Writing Coach and Writing about Writing.

Welcome to the race.

If you haven't perused the sites of the other racers, take a few minutes and see what everyone is up to.

Me? I'm not up to much today. After yesterday's post on Fear, I got to experience a little bit myself as a massive storm ripped through the region last night. Don't ya just love tornado warnings? (Please note sarcasm.) So, after jamming my kid and our cat into the hallway along with all my necessary items - purse, jewelry box... COMPUTER (my backups were in my coatpocket) - and covering them with pillows and blankets, my husband and I scanned the skies and the weather websites. We got a lot of hail and a lot of wind, but thankfully no damaging hail and no tornadoes. Outside it looks like a bizarre version of autumn. Leaves everywhere and all of them green. Leaves are plastered all over the outside of the house, the garage, my husband's car, the road. It's pretty twisted looking.

But nowhere near as twisted as what the poor folks in Greenburg & Dodge City, KS have to deal with. My thoughts are with them today. We got lucky.
