My S post went through a few drafts before I realised that I need Shiny Sunshine!
Possible topics included sunrise/sunset, Solicitor, sensible, seasons, sassy, strictly, sunshine, soundtrack, sketches, stations and shiny. If I knew how to add sound without breaching copyright I’d have tried to do a soundtrack. Music is very important when it comes to my novels, although they might not have any mentioned, while writing them I hear music which would fit with the soundtracks when they find their way onto the shiny screen.
Weather, also features though I’m not sure if I ever say what the weather’s up to but I’m very aware of it as I write and the seasons, which bring their different traditions and events, feature heavily in all the novels I’ve drafted so far. ‘I don’t do descriptions’ is a saying I’ve heard myself repeat and I need to rethink and be more open to adding description where it’s called for. I’ve added shiny in here as ‘ooh shiny’ is a saying I can relate to. When I know I should be editing even the cleaning becomes a shiny, more interesting thing to do.
This sketch looks like it was trying to become a sunset (sorry, not my best sketch of my AtoZ’s..). It’s been a long hibernation this winter, as I write this the sun is shining and the shiny thing to do is head for the sea, particularly since my sketch shows that I’ve forgotten what it looks like! Hmm.. Have I really not used the seaside as a location in any of my novels yet? Must do something about that, it will, of course, need research to remind myself what it’s like taking in the suns rays…
If there’s no posts after this one you’ll know where I am..
My AtoZchallenge posts are about writing, parts of my novels or some research I need to do for them. I’m not allowing myself to write about anything other than topics linked to the books, my books. The current titles that I’m writing about are ‘Bags’, ‘Holiday stories’ and ‘Dream Gardener’.
Definitely understand the feeling of everything else looking shining in comparison to editing sometimes! Particularly if I’m stuck.
Hey, you don’t get enough credit for the sketches, which are a nice touch to your blog. I have struggled just to find the right photographs for my posts – let alone try to draw anything! Well done.

Thanks Wayne. You’re right, I should get more credit for AtoZsketching too!! Hilarious you chose the sketch I’m least pleased with (so far) to do it on but much appreciated.
I think we all need some sunshine, it definitely gives us the feel good factor, and have you noticed how everyone’s mood is lifted as you out and about…
I also think we take energy from each other as well…try standing in a room full of enthusiastic people. It is infectious. The buzz is electric…a little like the A to Z Challenge…
Drawing, sketching isn’t my thing yet – never say never. But, I like to look at any art, so well done you, for bringing something fresh and different to the challenge.
Enjoyed reading that… 🙂
Thanks Maria, it’s been a good exercise for my rough sketches.. this one more rougher than most of them.. oops!
I like your sketch, and I’m glad you chose Sunny Sunshine. This winter was a long and cold one. The one thing I love about the Midwest is its distinct seasons; it’s cool to have the year ‘marked out’ like that.
thanks. the winter here wasn’t as cold as I’ve known but it was longer than most. Glad we’re seeing some sunshine!
I’m sitting in my sunroom right now, trying to soak it all up.
It’s a fine line between baring all to soak up the sun and remembering not to get sunburn. Hope you managed to soak safely! tee hee.. Sooo glad to come out of hibernation.
