Fall Back and Extra Hour

Fall back with autumn leavesThe best thing about changing the time in fall, is that we can fool ourselves into thinking we have an extra hour. indian about daylight savingsLet’s play along and choose what we will do with the extra hour?  Read, write, do arts and crafts, watch TV longer, exercise, sleep, the list goes on.

This morning I planned to work on writing Chapter Twelve since I could finish it in less than sixty  minutes. It’s 7:10 p.m., I just returned from the office, and I’m too tired to do anything. I guess I’ll sleep during the extra time. Jill, my POV character, will have to wait until the morning.

So, what did you do or will you do with your extra hour?

I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.

  1. Ha! We’re just getting the hour back that we lost when we went on DLT, done to fool ourselves into thinking we had an extra hour of sunlight. I will use my extra hour to start getting up an hour earlier with no pain. Should give me extra time to do some writing without anyone bugging me.
