Oh, the bliss of being able to think without “Muuuuum? Can I have something to eat?” “Muuuuum? Where is my lego truck?” “Muuuuuum? Where did I leave my shoes?” “Muuuuuum? Can I go for a swim?” “Muuuuuum? Is it lunchtime yet?”
Don’t get me wrong, I love my son, and I spend time with him, but that is the problem. I don’t get much time to myself to think, and when I can’t think or write, I tend to go a little crazy, and these holidays have been particularly bad! Man I couldn’t wait for 7th February and now I have a nice quiet and CLEAN house – all to myself!
I have two stories I am itching to work on, one is an historical novel based in Nelson, and the other is a fantasy novel based on a dream I had the other night… Very interesting time, first time I have had two stories wanting to be told, but I will only focus on one at a time. So the Historical novel is in April and the Fantasy will be my SoCNoC Novel.
Amazing how liberated I feel, just having my boy back at school and some time to think! Thank goodness sanity is coming back!
