Ken is back. Vicki and I picked him up today. He had a great time with the girls. They either had him out site seeing or he was sleeping on their couch. They kept him VERY busy.
Tomorrow I return to work. I’m almost afraid to see what my desk is like when I get back there. I’ll have a short week and I’m sure I’ll get caught up.
This time off has been extremely productive for me. I think I’ve finished making edits on the Moon manuscript. One more read through I think and then I’ll send it to the new publisher. Cross your fingers and toes…. I got some of the work done on the poetry manuscript. I started a new story and spent the bulk of my time working on this story. I have 31,000 words written (that’s nearly 100 pages double spaced).. I’m sort of wishing I had the rest of the week off to finish writing the first draft. I think I might be able to get it done if I had till next Monday. It has been great because I write and when I”m tired of it I nap. When I get up from napping, I go back to writing. I’ve been writing a lot of hours a day – up to ten hours a day maybe…
Reality is though I won’t have time off like this again until the end of December. I can only hope I can get a lot done in the couple of hours I have at night because tomorrow I am back to the normal routine.
