So I tried drinking less water, and it really didn’t work out that well! My lips dried out, which is a sign of dehydration, as is fatigue. *pauses to drink water* Here is the article that debunks the need for 8 glasses of water a day:

I do think this bears some thought. Anyway, I tried it, and I do feel remarkably better if I have eight gulps of water right after I wake up. Then if I have a couple more big glasses throughout the day. How about you?

I made it out to Sand Harbor today to take some photos with the dusting of snow we received. It was very cold, but pretty. Enjoy.

I am changing my blog schedule to two times a week. I love blogging and seeing all of you, but also feel that I need to create a bit more time for writing and reading, including other blogs. So I’m going to try twice a week. I think once a week will be my minimum, but I don’t want to drop to that yet. We shall see how it goes.

Thanks so much for visiting, and have a great week.

  1. Breathtaking pictures, Nicci! I am glad that you will spend more time on writing, you should because your readers are waiting! And surely you are also eager to get your fingers on the keyboard and start your journey with your heroes…isn’t it the most exciting job ever? However, come back and do not forget us! Loads of good luck!

    1. I won’t forget you, Ann, and indeed I might go back to 3 days a week. I am trying to find a bit more discipline with my time. Well a lot more. Thank you so much for reading my posts. I’ll do Monday and Friday, and save up good things to say! I’m glad you like the photos. I do have more to share. It was a long drive to get there yesterday morning, but I’m so glad I did. Hugs to you dear friend.

  2. I’m so glad you went, it looks lovely and peaceful, so different to when I saw it. I love the snow, I hope it means you will get lots this winter.

    I understand the cutting back on the blogging too, I’m thinking of doing the same, only doing 5 posts a week or 4 rather than the seven. I need to concentrate on some other things.

    1. Hi Leanne, I took your advice to try going back at different times of year. I am enjoying it a lot.

      Yes, on blogging. A lot of new potential readers “liked” my Facebook page. I’m going to do more there, and a bit less here. Also my newsletter is really important, and I need to make sure I do a great job with that. The rest of the time I need to really concentrate on getting words on the page. In a way, it’s not nearly as much fun as talking to people online. That is a classic writer pitfall. In the old days we would sit in cafes smoking, drinking, and talking about our books instead of writing! LOL Nowadays, I spend way too much time on non-writing, and I am realizing that now. Thanks, I think it is fun to share the journey of trying to grow a profession with you. Good luck! And thanks again for commenting. Given how busy you are, I really appreciate it.
