Industry

I took this photo of industry across Botany Bay near Sydney’s airport:


This is how a bee gets industrious:


How have you been industrious this month?

Note: For the month of April during the A-Z Challenge I am pausing from my usual blogging theme of writing and social media tips. Instead I hope to share with you my photography. Much of it is inspired by the fabulous and helpful site, The Bookshelf Muse. Please check it out and enjoy.

  2. Industrious is a lovely word- busy and purposeful, I think I am in that zone most of the time!

  3. Oh! who me? Industrious? I don't think so! Just read about a zillion books and wrote reviews!

  5. It's the Easter holidays so I'm taking break from being industrious for a day or two! :-)

    The bees' industry puts me to shame!

    Take care

    I see those dock cranes are rather universal throughout the world.

  9. I enjoy photography too. Hope to do more with it in the future, especially once I get a decent digital camera. I like your photos.

  11. Ingenious how you wrote a great post with so few words!So far in April, I've added 8000 new words to my WIP. I think I need a break today, but I need to keep writing.

  12. I am not being as industrious as I would like for the things I would like to be industrious for, but I'm working on it.

  14. I started a new YA, when I swore I wouldn't. But this story's really got my attention, which is a good thing. More than I can say for what I was working on before.

    1. Yep sometimes pausing or even stopping a manuscript is a good thing. New projects have a way of recharging the creativity.

  15. Excellent photos. I've been rehearsing and now performing my play "Coffee Shop Confessions." It's a blast!

  16. Your photography shows a wonderful artistic eye. Industrious? Hmmm, that's all relative. Can we define parking my arse in my office chair and working on the computer most of the day "industrious?" If so, I'm EXTREMELY industrious. Thanks for visiting my blog and for signing on as a new follower. I do appreciate it, and am happy to return the favor. (Not often I get the chance to push someone so close to a magical 1000 followers!)

  18. Love the 2 versions of industry/industrious. :) I've finished my WIP!--that's industrious. Now to turn my attention to all the things I've been neglecting meanwhile...

  19. I think all of us in the A-Z challenge have been pretty industrious...

  20. I haven't been as industrious as I wanted. Most of my hard-working energy is going toward creating a baby and getting over being sick, lol. Still, I've managed to get a fair amount done. :)

  21. I actually thought that first picture was a fairground at first :-)

    Hmm .... industrious? Well, I've met a lot of new people and typed a lot of comments !

  22. I've definitely tried to be industrious, writing at least 1,000 words a day. Whew, it can be tiring at times though:)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have NOT been industrious lately. Haven't written in weeks...other than blog posts. Now that I'm home again, I've got to get back on schedule.

    ReplyDelete
  24. hah, I'm trying to be industrious this month! great I word!

  25. Industrious - this A-Z Challenge and novel work. Whew, I'm tired! :)

  26. The Bookshelf Muse also does photography??? I love their thesaurus entries for emotions and settings and other writerly helps.

    1. The Bookshelf Muse doesn't do photograhy, but they have inspired me with my own photos so I wanted to give them a proper shout out.

  27. Great photos! I think all of us doing the A-Z qualify as industrious this month! :)

  28. Yes, have. Preparing to plant (is that tilling?) Planted snow peas, pickling cucunbers, bell peppers and a lovely basil plant, And Coriander.
    Fixing to plant tomatoes but all the ol' locals say wait till May or at least after Easter, 'specially with a blackberry winter, which means - if blackberry plants are flowering, then it is not "safe" to plant until May for fear of frost. Those blackberry plants are thorny pests, ut so too are my raspberry plants.
    So I guess am industrious.

  29. I totally live there! Well, not in Botany but across the water in the St George area, but I totally know where that is! * feels proud*

    I haven't been industrious this month but I hope to change that very soon.

    Have a great month!

  41. Just the A to Z challenge, and my 12x12 in 2012 keeps me busy!

  42. I'm doing my best, but only being able to use my work's computer for half an hour a day for the next 3 months to blog makes it difficult. I do what I can though
