Ohhhhhh....how busy and crazy and just generally chaotic life has been lately!!!!! But I know I'm preaching to the choir. Everyone is busy. That doesn't make me unique.
I do get envious of those of you who can write full time... I so pine for the day when Super-Awesome-Agent finds me wandering aimlessly in Submission-Land, and falls madly in love with my work and is able to sell it to Super-Awesome-Publisher who also falls madly in love with my work and offers me that 7 figure book deal, of course asking for 4 more. So I can be a stay-at-home-writer and do this full time and quit having to come to this pesky "job" that keeps getting in my way!
(Just kidding, job-gods, really really! Need that paycheck!)
Well, the current wip is a little over 50K, not sure how much over because I haven't typed more in yet...it's still in my handy dandy notebook. And while I'm still stressing about time, I've kind of fallen into acceptance that it probably won't be as complete as I want it to be, but it will be close. Uggghhhh...
But that's just going to have to be okay, because there's only so much me to spread around. This will likely be my last post till next week, because I'm leaving tomorrow night for a four day retreat, leaving my poor family to fend for themselves (translation: no cooking, cleaning, laundry, or homework will be done.) I'm sure I'll come back to chaos, but hopefully there won't be any where I am. Unfortunately there won't be any writing done either...unless I can sneak in the bathroom and knock out a few lines... but I don't even get to bring my cell phone or a watch.
Can you say "separation anxiety"?
Life without my phone. Kinda gives me a twitch, thinking about it. It will be like when I was growing up and the only phones were attached to a wire on the wall. Hmm. Ancient times.
(this phone was in my house, was it in yours?)
Anyway, I'll be reading your blogs today and tomorrow, and be back with you all next week!
