Episode Two in this Glamorous Writer’s Life



Hi everyone –

Thanks for all the fun flash fiction a couple weeks ago!  I think we ended up with 3 flash fictions so I’ll be in touch to get addresses for chocolate!  YUM!  Here’s the link if you missed it… :) http://www.castlesandguns.com/2012/05/flash-fiction-fun.html

So ready for another peek into a writer’s glamorous life?

My son graduated high school last week.  I’m still reeling that he’s gotten so big so fast.  Yow!  We had lots of fun…





What’s this got to do with writing and glamour?

Socks.

Yes, my friends. The dreaded… Socks and Laundry. 

The two weeks leading up to Reno’s graduation were SOOO busy with senior awards nights, choir awards, swim team banquets, and more, that my head was spinning.

Add to the mix that I got my edits for Night Thief and we’re on a tight schedule with it… Any free moment that wasn’t devoted to picking up a cap and gown went to fixing sentences and tightening dialog.

No time went to laundry.

In the past week I have done laundry every single night, and it still looks like I’ve only made a minor dent in it!  Yikes!!!

On the bright side, I did finish my edits and I’m waiting to hear back from a beta reader before I toss it back to my editor…

Now it’s just me and the dirty laundry…  Oh the glamour! LOL

Yeesh!

So what kind of glamorous things are keeping you busy this summer?

  2. Isn't sharing family stuff fun? I love it. I'm on baby watch--got a granddaughter coming any second. Involved in PNWA. The annual conference is in July. Looking forward to August and doing as little as possible. Need the rest. A wine festival in Canada in September. Looking at this, where does the time go?
