The August Garden
I can't believe how fast this summer is going. Here it is August already. The garden is looking very August-ish: tangled, messy, and just the beginning of autumnal browns and golds among the leaves. The tomato plants are not very visible in this picture because they've gotten so big they've toppled their cages and are lying along the ground, sending down roots from their stems and letting the heavy tomatoes rot amid the weeds.
I'm over 40,000 words into The Trickster Society and writing as fast as I can. I'm hoping to finish the first draft by the end of this month so I can clear the decks for the 3-day Novel Contest and my usual fall frenzy of writing.
I'm starting to think happily about Halloween coming up.
