Summer vacation

How is your summer going?

Every year, I think the summer will be a time when I will get more writing done and every year, I am wrong!  If I can't pull it off during the school year when two of my children are gone most of the day, I don't know how I think the summer will be easier!

The summer always seems to fly by but it has been great, so far!  My daughter and I flew to Florida for my cousin's wedding and our whole family drove down to Florida two weeks later to spend a week on the beach!  My son completed one Taekwondo camp and begins another tomorrow.  My daughter attended a gymnastics camp in Indianapolis but her friend could not go--so that was a little bit of a commute each day but still an easy drive.

I am just now getting to the rewrite I had planned for the summer so it is progress--but I'm still far behind where I wanted to be.  (It probably doesn't help that I keep thinking how nice it would be to be writing on the beach!) One day!

Having said that, I need to get back to work.  I have not yet registered for the writing conference on the beach.  Last year, I did not take full advantage and really need to get this rewrite finished if I am going to go, again!

How are you enjoying your summer?

I'm the same way with reading, as you are about writing, over the summer. I've got this long list of books I'd like to finish, but it's taking surprisingly long. I even live a block away from the beach!

OK. I'll log off and write, you log off and grab a book.
GO! ;)

Ahhh. Writing at the beach sounds lovely. Sometimes I get out of the house and go to my local library, but it's just not the same thing.

Caryn,
LOL! Not even close, no matter how great your imagination is! ;)
Unfortunately, I need to have my draft really ready--this is a chance for feedback but not a workshop. So I need to get the rewriting finished before I get to the beach!
(Or find a workshop, instead!)

Hurry up and get ready! I can't wait to see you in October!
