I wish I could get on with my writing! Sometimes life just gets in the way. Last week was a fairly patchy affair at work, so I got less writing time, and to be honest, I am struggling to get some writing done at home.
My husband and I have been going through some large family changes, we are working together to create a family that we can be proud of. It is nice to be finally working together, but sometimes it would be nice to have some time to myself to just collect my thoughts and process the information.
Over the weekend we have our first family time together. Most weekends involve either myself or my husband disappearing out the door to various appointments or to catch up with family and friends, and our kids scatter in different directions with us. We have decided that one weekend a month will be devoted to spending time together. The television gets turned off so we can chat and catch up. This weekend, because it was wet, we got permission to use the school hall and played basketball, dodgeball and indoor hockey.
We have lots of laughs, a few tears, but all in all it was an awesome weekend – except that I ended up in A & E on Saturday for 5 hours with a suspected broken jaw. I am off this morning for a final xray, one that is hopefully a bit more conclusive than the three on Saturday. In the meantime I have been on a soft and liquid diet.
This week at work, several of the classes are off on camp, so it will be quieter around the school, but I don’t have much time to myself, so it might be writing at home this week.
Progress on writing – well I have written 12k so far, and when I showed my husband the submission call over the weekend, discovered that they want 20 – 25k words. Hmm, was hoping to be closer to 35k, but can shorten it. Just need to get it done!
