It’s been an odd week. Monday was just busy, then, all hell broke loose on Tuesday. I started off for my walk and realized my IPOD was dead. Since the day was cold and blustery, I opted out of my walk. Good thing. I got back to the house to a phone message. Mr. Scott had wrecked the van! Thank goodness he wasn’t hurt, but my poor, poor van was in bad shape. We spent the rest of the morning coordinating insurance, towing, and car rental.
Wednesday the kids were home all day from school…need I say more.
I headed off to my critique group that evening with 12 pages of a new prologue to my zombie historical grasped in my hot nervous hands. I’d thought the previous prologue that I’d passed out last month was lame. Imagine my surprise when my six critique partners thought it was THE BEST writing I’d ever done. I handed out the new prologue…but came home and immediately stuck the old one back into the file (note to self, never delete sections…cut and paste them to an odd document you can discard only after the darn thing is published). Then, they have convinced me that third person POV is better than first…not such an easy fix.
Thursday, I interviewed cleaning services. I’m sooooo excited. Sometime in the next week, I will have my house spik and span AND have someone coming out at least once a month to keep the writing cave in order.
There’s been very little drama out of the kids this week. Drama Teen has been singularly drama-less, Kinderboy #1 has had some breakdowns, but nothing out of the ordinary. Kinderboy#2 is getting his pictures retaken today (although I don’t hold out much hope that the second set will be much better than the first. Sigh)
We have an early morning soccer game tomorrow. Thankfully, I’m not snack mom this week.
Now, I have to get back to changing the first three chapters from first person POV to third…so that I can get back to writing forward next week (between dental appointments, but I’m sure that will be another story for next Friday.)
Hope you have a great weekend!
