Next week I will do better and get info from Ann Dee and Kyra before I post but–this was a tough week for me.
So, sadly, I haven’t done as good as I would have liked.
Monday, Cheri (my writing partner) and I spoke to a new publishing company about our early mid-grade series being pubbed.
We learned he needed rewrites on two novels by Saturday. I started getting The Headache. (I complain of these things regularly.)
Tuesday was the beginning of two classes for me at BYU. Both are creative writing and I am excited to have these amazing students write novels and publish those novels and dedicate those novels to . . . me! Hahaha! That’s what I always say to them, but I only halfway mean it. 🙂
Wednesday I learned bad news from Cheri and she had to take off to Kansas. She’s there now.
Thursday I taught my classes and subbed an evening class for Cheri. I met with several students in between classes. I took more Excedrin.
And here it is, Friday, The Day of Accountability.
I’m not sure if I wrote anything at all except Monday morning where I put in almost 1000 words. And then Tuesday where I did a bit of rewriting (about 20 pages).
All week I worked with several of the assistants for the WIFYR conference. Thank goodness I have Becca Birkin on my team.
TODAY, I will finish the rewrite of the book I have to send into the publisher tomorrow.
I will set up another schedule for my week to rearrange and maybe make time work differently for me.
I will get rid of the headache once and for all.
I will fill out paperwork for the publisher that should have been done some time back.
Here is what I will not do.
Something has to give. And I want a life as a real writer. That’s one of my goals.
So I will have my beautiful and amazing daughters help me there.
If you want to write, and if you have a family, they must be supportive. I have been lucky. All my life I have had support as a writer. It’s been giving myself permission to really write that has been hard.
What about the rest of you?
Please let us know how you have done.
Be as detailed as you want. But let’s support each other to publication.
