Yes, family day has arrived. Yippee! The only writing I do on Saturday and Sunday is this blog update.
But, reading, yes, I can squeeze in a little reading here and there between sweeping, mopping the kitchen floor, pretending to be a dog for the three year old, cooking, organizing, driving kids around and chatting on the phone.
So, what to read? It’s hard to read the “How to Write a Mystery Novel” guides without working out the plot and characters right then and there. So, I pulled out the only mystery in the house that I haven’t read yet- Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith. It’s fun to read someone else’s mystery!
For those who are still worried: DH found the National Park Pass in my van, where my mom said it would be, so HOORAY, soon I will be at Kilauea overlook again.
Speaking of soon:
This week (week two) will be a little dicey. Monday I volunteered to work (well, they do pay me) from 830-3.
Weds and Thursday I also said I would work a bit, but maybe I don’t have to do that many hours.
Friday is Writer’s Group.
It may be hard to crank out the hours (again) this week, but I will persevere and do my best. I’m thinking about writing from 6am (bus drop off time) until 8 am (time to get to work) on Monday, which will get me two hours. And Weds/Thurs, I could do two or three hours up front and work from 9-? Might work!
