Writing, writing, writing, writing
Sorry to have left you with a boring blog about my garden for so long. I’ve been trying to stay focused on finishing SKIN DEEP.
Sadly, I haven’t succeeded. Between work I needed to get done for Rock*It Reads — an investment of time — and some extra time-consuming stuff for my opinion column this week for the paper, I lost a couple of days.
Then an old lady crashed into my car in a parking lot, and that has taken up a lot of time. I was fine. She was fine. Her car was fine. Mine has about $1,000 worth of damage that she is going to cover. But spending time on the phone with insurance companies, going to get an estimate for repairs, and talking with her ate a chunk of yesterday. So aggravating!
It’s one thing if I waste my time. It’s something else if other people waste it.
SO, I’m putting the universe on notice that this is it. No more. I’m staying offline and ignoring email until this story is written.
As far as the story itself goes, I have the rest of it in my head. It just needs to come out. I think fans of the I-Team will really enjoy it.
Of course, once I finish it, it will finally be time to write “Marc and Julian Make a Beer Run,” which will be included in the back of the novella as an extra treat for I-Team fanatics. (You know who you are.)
Have a great Friday and weekend, everyone! I hope to be back on Monday celebrating.
