White Squirrel Arts Fest, #AmWriting, and #AmWatching

This weekend is the White Squirrel Arts Festival here in Bowling Green. I think this is the inaugural year, but it’s downtown and will feature artists, writers, musicians, crafts, food trucks, etc. I’ll be there on Saturday at my author table selling books, so stop by if you’re in the neighborhood! The weather looks iffy right now – keep your fingers crossed the forecast improves. Besides the festival, the baseball stadium downtown is hosting Tacos and Tequila and the Farmer’s Market will be open. Should to be a fun weekend!

Book 5 is moving along. Generations of family figure into this story, and I had to create a family tree. It was fun looking up popular names from those time periods. Many of them are still the same. Now I have to create a family cemetery. A couple years ago, a friend and I were at a park walking her dog. It’s right beside a huge cemetery, and the walking path leads into it. I took a picture of an old, gnarled, twisty tree that fascinated me and knew it figured into a story somewhere. Now I know where.

Things we’re watching/watched:

Succession the final season – After being riveted every season, hubby decided last night it was “lame”. So I’ll be finishing it on my own.

The Rabbit Hole – We’re behind a couple episodes, but still caught up in the story.

80 for Brady – Watched it Friday night. Stellar cast (Lily Tomlin, Sally Field, Rita Moreno, and Jane Fonda) with some humorous moments. Overall maybe a 6.5 out of 10.

Maybe I Do – With Diane Keaton, Richard Gere, William H. Macy, and Susan Sarandon, it’s a star-studded cast, but we’d expected more of a romantic comedy. Still, not a bad movie.

Have a great week!

  1. It sounds like you’re going to have a great weekend if the weather holds, Teri. I hope you sell a bunch of books. And delighted to hear there’s another in the works. We started watching Rabbit Hole based on your recommendation and we’re hooked. Definitely have to pay attention to that one! Have a great week. πŸ™‚

    Hope you have fun at the festival. Glad the book is coming along well, and that you’re having fun with the research and family tree creation part of it.

  3. The Art Festival sounds like a wonderful time. Fingers crossed the weather is good and you sell a ton of books! πŸ™‚

    I love old gnarled trees—and creating geneologies for characters. It sounds like you’re really enjoying working on your WIP, Teri!

  4. The Arts Fest sounds super fun and I hope you meet a bunch of new readers! Thank you for sharing. I haven’t seen any of the shows you mentioned, but I shy away from series because I get too engrossed in them and ignore my reading pile. I am, however, finishing up Breaking Bad. I’m ready to be done and move on! πŸ™‚

    1. I’d love to meet some new readers, Jan – they have to be hanging out somewhere, right? A couple of those above are movies, and I’m trying to finish some series before starting others. Just got caught up on The Mandalorian, and I’m nearly done with Shadow and Bone.

  5. Sounds like it will be a fun weekend. Fingers crossed for good weather. Hope you sell lots of books. Love the story about seeing the tree. I make it a point to always jot down or make mental notes about things like that. Never know when they’ll be used.

    Speaking of watching shows, thanks for the link about the Titanic footage. Hubs and I plan to watch it soon.

    1. I’ve also got a couple of pics of art I saw at a restaurant in downtown Louisville that I know will show up in a story sooner or later. Sometimes things just stick with you.

      I know you’ll be fascinated by the Titanic coverage. It’s sad, but also mind-boggling that the wreckage still exists.

  6. HI Teri, it is lovely that your book fairs and festivals have come back. I am attending the South African Children’s Literary Festival in Cape Town (14 hours drive from Johannesburg) in early May. I have been given a 15 minute slot for a presentation. I am nervous but it is a great opportunity.
