All of you writers out there, are you ready for NaNoWriMo? Most of our FVP featured authors wrote their published works during one of these annual word-weaving extravaganzas. If you don’t have a Region group in your area, we welcome you to join Snoqualmie Valley Region as your Home Region. We’ll be glad to cheer you on to the 50,000 word finish line! If you haven’t written your novel yet, what are you waiting for? Give it a try this November. We’re right here with you!

Here’s the flyer for our local Kick-off Party. If you’re near enough to attend, we look forward to seeing you there!

Breathing Space – October 22/14

Breathing Space 10-22-2014Our little garden gnome better get to work on all those leaves that keep falling! … I wanted to capture the high river after all of the intense rain on October 22nd. It was too dark for a photo when I got home, but here’s one (a little late) from the morning of the 23rd. As you can see the small bushes at rivers edge during the summer are now surrounded by water, and only the larger rocks are visible today.

I felt like I was being watched, and there he was with his eye on me, watching my walk on the river trail.

The ducks usually are wary at the edge of the lake and leave the beach to swim away long before you reach the water’s edge. It may be because so many dogs play here. I’m not sure why this one slept so peacefully. Perhaps the shallow moat of water between she and I was enough to keep her daydreams sweet and secure.

My review of Sharol Louise’s upcoming release…

I don’t usually read mysteries. It’s because many modern mysteries come across as contrived puzzles on which the author drapes words willy-nilly to get to the next clue.

Breathing Space – October 11/14


The wet and windy weather arrived in spurts today, and my spiderweb-suspended leaves were long gone this morning. The rapidly changing weather – from bright sun to cold pouring rain and back again – culminated with a lightning storm at sunset. Exhilarating!
