I will really miss my sons’ handsome faces and conversation and laughter and hugs and smiles and all of that, but I also feel like this parent:
As my kids return to school tomorrow, I am anticipating a big increase in output. During the day, I will no longer be carting them around, feeding and entertaining them, refereeing at times, and being interrupted 127 times while on the laptop or on the phone or in the bathroom. (Seriously, guys…timing.)
Before I begin my ascent to the apex of productivity, however, let’s see how I did last week:
- Cheer on the ROW80 participants. Done.
- Revise SHARING HUNTER, my young adult contemporary novel, using Margie Lawson’s EDITS program. I made some progress. However, I decided to wait until my kids return to school this week to read all of the dialogue aloud.
- Exercise at least twice each week. I’ll be shakin’ my groove thing at Zumba on Monday morning.
- Submit a query for SHARING HUNTER. On hold until I complete more edits.
- Read at least 50 pages of The Writer’s Journey by Christopher Vogler. Finished the book.
As my children ease into school, maybe I’ll get even more than writing and revising done. Maybe I’ll also give the house a spiffing-up and have supper planned and ready with greater consistency. (Hubby is crossing his fingers.)
How are your goals coming along? Are you expecting to make more or less progress since summer is over and the school year is starting?
