This week it’s quiet in the house all morning after I drop all the kids off at community vacation Bible school (VBS). My older two are workers, and the younger two students. This gives me my mornings free for writing.
So, how much writing am I getting done? Um, not as much as I should be. Monday is laundry day in my house, when I try to get all the laundry done. My older two do their own. And, we have a water leak outside our house, so we have had some activity on one side of the house, making the dog excitable and interrupting my peace and quiet.
I am rewriting the last two chapters of Heir Force, and it’s like starting over. I feel like I am pulling on nails stuck in concrete. The words aren’t coming as fast or as orderly as I like, and it’s slowing me down and making me anxious. I am nowhere nearer to the end this week than I was last week. But I am still coming up with ideas for which direction to go, and they are as numerous as spots on a leopard, making it difficult to decide. Why did I choose this profession?
My snapdragons are starting to bloom as well as some of the verbena and vinca we planted. We had a great time on Father’s Day playing badminton in the side yard (the one opposite the water leak) with much laughter at our ineptitude for the game. Laughter is as good as the exercise, so all is well.
Anything exciting happening at your house?
Have a great week!
