This is the day my kids’ summer vacation ends. They’re homeschooled and we go basically year round, but took most of July off this year. Hopefully they remember everything they’re supposed to remember.
I was a bit lazy in July as well, especially in this past week. Too much time in Azeroth and not enough time at the keyboard. Well, yeah.. at the keyboard, but not writing!
It’s Monday morning and time for all of us to get back to work. But work, for me, is so much different now.
My usual modus operandi for fiction writing before was to wait until the kids were tucked in bed and my youngest stopped making distracting noises. (Which could take more than an hour.) Then I would open up my WIP (work in progress) file and start typing. Maybe.
This will be the first time I will seriously try to write fiction with the kids in the same room as me. I hope I can break the tradition and get stuff done, because I can’t do all my writing at night if I’m going to be a full-time fiction writer.
The Plan For the Week:
- Work on the “Lust” entry for Accentuate short story contest ending Aug 31st.
- Edit “Sweetest Poison” and polish it to be ready for submission
- Write at least 5,000 words in “Shroud Work,” my fantasy novel
Getting those three things done will satisfy me.
Deep breath… here I go.
