Here is a link to Laurie Halse Anderson's annual WFMAD (write fifteen minutes a day) challenge. Good reason to get into the BIC (butt-in-chair) routine that I so desperately need. I shudder to think how long I've been (inconsistently) working on this particular story. Shocking and really, really embarrassing. Idonwannatalkaboutit.
This has been a crazy summer. Despite the heat and drought (my yard is dead. crunchy/fire tinder/really seriously dead....except for a few weeds), which have honestly been the least of my worries. Well, worries may be too strong a word. Summer is always busy at my job, public libraries are GREAT places for kids to hang out in the summer! I am so very glad they do, it is just busy! Lots of programs, and I am the program lady. :) On top of that, however we are buying our house, our daughter got married, and all kinds of other fun things. Anyone who has bought a house recently will tell you that there are many, many hoops that one must leap through, some of them flaming hoops. Which reminds me that I forgot to call the nice people at the insurance company back, they need to come take photos of my water heater and breaker box. (Hoop)
