Made it thorough DD’s recital and DS2’s b-day party! Now I face huge heaps of laundry and the writing I haven’t done.
I need to get back to it. This is a transition week–last day of school is Wednesday and I usually do my writing at Biggby. Can’t really leave the kiddos alone for an hour or so–or can I? They are 15, 11, 8 and 5 (almost 6). The 11-yr-old is as steady as they come. 15-yr-old has his moments. Maybe I can take some time a few hours a week and work. I need to. If I don’t get this party started, I’ll never get pubbed. Read a blog a couple days ago that you should have a finished ms for every year you’ve been writing seriously.
Guess who doesn’t?
Sure I have reasons. Some are actually good ones. But not good enough. This is my job–or will be–and I need to act like it. So, this is me rededicating myself to my career, right at the craziest time of year for me. (Why do things the easy way? Ever?) I’ll learn to write around the chaos, too. That’s why God made iPods. Oh, wait, that was Apple. Close enough.
So tonight, the laptop comes back out of its (super cute) bag. And I will reaquaint myself with the wip I left behind the day in March when I got THAT phone call.
