It has been a busy day.
I went to the trailer because it’s the long weekend and I needed some beach time! Probably more the water time as I find I am soothed by being near the water.
I also managed to get some more writing done on my latest project and as I write it I’m thinking it might end up being a longish short story, a short story or a novella. I am finding it interesting that in the last six months I have written more than I have in the last three years combined is my best guess but even in all the years I’ve been writing I don’t think I have managed to write this much. I was putting out a book about every two years, maybe eighteen months and now I have written a novella, a novel, I’m working on this new project plus I have written articles that I have been paid for, I have written a short story and am working on another.
This has been incredible! I must say that having somewhere between three and four days off out of seven has probably contributed… at least the weeks where I have the four days off. It gives me a fair bit of extra time to write and focus on those projects.
In some ways I wish I would have planned a camp this summer… in hindsight I wish I would have planned a camp this summer! It’s good that I feel that way right now… and perhaps, with all the writing I’ve managed to accomplish in the last six months, it will push me forward and maybe I will get back onto the camp bandwagon for next summer! My biggest issue is WHERE to have it. I suppose I could do it in my front yard or basement… limit the number of kids to six, borrow the folding table my parents have and put it out on the patio on the good days?
Figure out logistics as we go along…
I wish you all a goodnight… I’m exhausted but it’s a good exhausted… it’s a fresh air, sand-between-my-toes exhausted!
