Missing in Action

You may have noticed I haven't been posting much the last few weeks. There is an explanation for that. I've been spending most of my time getting my laptop set up and working on my next novel. I know, poor excuse, but actually the truth.

We've also been very busy editing our first short film "The Fan". After three weeks, I think we have a movie. Just need to do a bit more tweeking with the color and transitions. We sent our first rough cut out to five reviewers that we trusted to give us honest feedback. While each had a number of criticisms of the film - four out of five liked what we had done. I feel good about that.

Backwoods Living will be updated with new articles just as soon as we figure out how to import the existing files, pictures and videos into Site Spinner Pro. We just updated that program from the lesser version so that, with any luck, soon you'll be able to visit Backwoods Living on your mobile device. Of course, how soon that happens will depend on how smart I am and how complicated the new version of the program is. Plus we've got to collect the files for the website from three different computers that have been used over the years. Hard to imagine that the site started with ten articles and now has over 300 different pages. So it's probably going to be a daunting task, no matter how uncomplicated the new program is. :)

Weather here is cool for the middle of September. Temps never reached 60 degrees yesterday and I don't think it will get much warmer than that today. Cloud cover and rain will hold those temps down. But, as Kevin says, the rain will make the ground softer, which in turn, will make it easier to dig the holes for the pier supports for the new library addition. Which we will hopefully be able to get started on next week, if it doesn't rain all week long. At least the temps won't be in the 100s like most of last month.

So stay tuned, big changes are coming to Backwoods Living...once I figure out how to make them happen.
