What Gets in the Way

That's the talk prompt over on the RWC list this week. It's timely, too, since I have done nothing writing-related since, um, Tuesday. I think. Possibly Wednesday. Hey, what day is it anyway?

Here's the deal: It's Homecoming week at school. I'm the SGA advisor. That means I'm planning the entire spirit week activities plus the dance. Oh, and I'm a senior sponsor, so I'm fearlessly leading the seniors through said activities. I'm taking care of my two Monsters, who must have spirit stuff for each day as needed. I've attended softball and cross country meets.

Did I mention my edits on Hold On To Me are due Monday?!

Luckily I planned ahead and worked steadily on said edits until I finished them earlier this week. I knew once Wednesday got here, that would be all she wrote! So one more read and tweak and I can probably send the manuscript to my editor with a happy heart.

What about you? Anything getting in the way? Or are you happy sailing, writing-wise?

Other than a burp in my self-confidence earlier this week, nothing is in the way. I finally have a schedule that works for me, and everything seems to be on track. Of course, the only deadlines I have are self-imposed, so I expect it's a little easier for me. The only thing I can foresee keeping me from writing is the fact that it's football season AND the baseball playoffs are coming up.

Good job on getting those edits done ahead of time. Way to plan! =oD

Um...this week. Let's see...kids, not feeling well, kids, reading a new release I've been waiting for, kids...need I go on?

Actually, I did a lot of edits on a few things I needed to wrap up this week. No new writing going on, but I needed to step back and finish a few of these things before I jumped into the new proposal anyway. And I find between projects it's good to stew a few days to figure out what's happening with the next book. After a week away from a lot of NEW writing (been lots of rewriting, just nothing NEW), I have a good handle on the first few chapters of the new proposal and I can't wait to dive into them.

Fun blog! Can't wait to hear what others say. Oh, and hope the dance goes well. Man, I don't miss planning and chaperoning those things. ;)
