What are you doing to pass the time during #Droughtlander?

Waiting for Diana Gabaldon's next book, or the next season of the OUTLANDER TV series, is always hard. For many fans, this #Droughtlander can seem endless, and we all have different ways to cope with it.

I'm curious about what you've been doing to pass the time while we wait. Are you reading (or re-reading) the OUTLANDER books? Watching the DVDs? Constantly scanning social media for the slightest mention of Season 5 news? Or are you taking a break from OUTLANDER fandom for a while?

I've been relaxing and focusing on other things, but of course I'm still "herding the bumblebees" in Diana Gabaldon's section of (formerly the Compuserve Books and Writers Community).

What about the rest of you? Please take a moment to vote in the September poll, and feel free to leave a comment here or on my Outlandish Observations Facebook page, letting us know how you voted or sharing your favorite coping strategies for getting through #Droughtlander. Thanks!

The Gaelic expression shown above, "Fuirich agus chi thu", means "Wait and see", and it's one of Diana Gabaldon's favorite phrases.
