Friday is finally here and there’s a break in the wet weather this year. I was driving over one of our rivers in Minnesota and noticed how high the waters are here in Minnesota. My nose wrinkled with the thought of our unofficial state bird breeding more as the temperatures rise. Yes, wetter weather means more the mosquitos flying around looking for new blood.

I’ll be sitting outside with the bug zapper steadily going off this summer. Looking at the pale color of my legs, I better get outside soon. My skin is still the shade I like to call, winter vampire. Maybe this look will deter the blood sucking bugs as we move into a new season.

I guess that’s enough talk of Minnesota life and back to our theme this week, especially with the events in the news. As we go into the weekend, remember to be kind. Thinking kind thoughts and speaking kind words can change the world. We need better thoughts around us.

Your prompt for today is to practice kindness. Even just thinking kinds words instead of the negatives that can sputter up. Writers out there shouldn’t have too much trouble with this request because you create new worlds and words for your characters all the time. Help someone by speaking kindness into their life.

My posts are Monday through Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
