Another crossed off item on my to-do list.  A blog. Doesn't matter how slow I am - slow and steady wins the race, right?  That's what I tell myself anyway.  It makes me feel better.
Sometimes it feels like my mind is spinning at a thousand miles an hour.  or even a minute.  It almost feels like I could easily become obsessed with writing.  Scary.
I found a wonderful book in the library, like an encyclopedia of monsters and ghosts.  I now have ideas for at least ten or twenty books.  Mostly middle-grades, even adults.
So I'm jotting ideas, story-lines, even names of a couple of books.
And that's while all my kids were home, and even an extra kid!  I cooked, I cleaned, I vacuumed, I did laundry, and I found time to be creative!
I love that book!
If I could only find time to sit and write!  I can't wait!  I'm almost bouncing off the walls just thinking about it!
But first I need to finish editing The Unbelievers - if I still call it that.  I think so; I'm really liking the title.
I am three- quarters done.  So close and its so exciting to be done.
Scratch that - first I need my girls to go to sleep!  My brain does not function in the late evenings.  It shuts off  like a switch by around nine.  If you ask me anything around that time my response will probably be, "Duh -wha?"
Definitely a morning person.  A cheery bopping morning person.  The kind that everybody loves to hate until they've had their seventh cup of coffee.
Just joking.
Mostly.  I am a morning person.
Back to why I am blogging.
Writing. Right.
Soul Catcher still has to be edited this week, so I think I'll get Cassidy to take it to school and do the first edit.  She loves to scratch words out and add more.  To prove me wrong, of course.  She looooooooooves to do that.
And I can try to upload it to Kobo once I get my answer to the ISBN question.
And then the picture books, 'b' of the alphabet series, and then, finally, I will begin one new story.
While I edit The Right Match.
Sigh.
Does it sound like I don't like editing?  Cause I don't.  It's not fun.  Well, the first one is, and maybe the last, but definitely not the ones in between.
So although I did not get to start any new stories/novels, etc., I actually got to write!
As I said before, slow and steady wins the race - right?
