work that isn’t writing  

I cannot believe it’s the end of August. This summer has been a loss to a much greater degree than expected, and I’m just sort of…I’m getting my feet back under me, at this point. And I *am* getting my feet back under me: I’ve actually accomplished a great deal of detail work over the past week, all of which was very necessary and is something of a weight off my shoulders.

Today is the first day of school:


which means I have about 8 weeks of 15-20 hours of time back to myself before the first term break, and in that time I…should theoretically be able to get quite a lot done. I’m not even going to make a list of what that all should be, not here, not today, not when I have a bunch of other piecemeal bits to still get done, but…the ball is rolling a little, maybe. I just hope it’s not up hill. :)

I traveled more than usual this summer (RWA Nationals in NYC and then a 9 day vacation with the family in Cape Cod) and I'm having a hell of a time getting back into the groove.


Indy looks so grown up!

OMG your kid is so cute and he looks so bright. Like a handful and a half but SO BRIGHT.

You are a powerhouse, and I'm sorry random events keep soaking up all the power you wanted to use for other things.

Like a handful and a half but SO BRIGHT.

Both of these things are accurate. :) He also has the very low frustration threshold of someone who expects to be instantly good at things. I CAN'T IMAGINE WHERE HE GOT THAT FROM!

Why no, where could that possibly have come from? Heredity is very mysterious. *nods seriously*

What a great picture of a cute kid.

I keep telling my son we're going to send him to boarding school. Come on, new book contract!
