Holy Not Writing Batman
A week with the flu followed by a week to clean and pack, followed by a flight home where my oldest got sick on the planes (yes, both of them). Then him being sick, me looking for a car, jet lag, my littlest being home with me. It takes a much stronger woman than me to write too. Someday I hope to be that woman, but right now with the world topsy turvy my mind lingers on things that aren't my stories. This weekend will be a bust too. We're going to visit my family whom we haven't seen in a year, but my littlest is being held hostage by grandma for the week and my oldest should be well enough and adjusted enough to go back to school. Leaving me 7:30 to 2:30 to work on the house and writing. I'm thinking of trying the write for a half hour and do something else for a half hour trick. So I'll start posting progress again on Monday where I'm hoping to finish the short, Beloved, and start a fast draft (20 pages a day for two weeks) on Fallen. I'd love to push myself harder and go for 40 pages a day, but I'll have to see what time permits. I still need to set up a writing area which includes getting a desk which means I need to get a cheap car so I can afford a desk. :) Funny how that works.
