I’m also working on taking care of the things the kids need to do over the summer: finding a new doctor (theirs retired, but we succeeded), doing dental stuff (about half done), doing fun classes for learning to use school resources (done and over with), and swim lessons. Which are scheduled for next month, but not yet paid for.
All of this takes time. And energy. And tends to yank me out of the writing groove.
I’m not done. I’ve gotten a bit under half written. I’m hoping to get this sucker out by the end of August, at this point.
I am having a lot of fun–I’m learning things about my characters that I didn’t know. Things keep happening that I didn’t plan for. And this…this is the fun part of writing.
