Life and Writing

Yes, life does get in the way of writing. Though Iknow what a pain it is to remodel, we're now in the middle of redoing a bathroom. It's a major project as everything at that end of the house was built in a ramshakle fashion. And like most contractors, the workers never show up when they say they are coming. This guy was smart though, he didn't say how long the job would take. The room is at the end of a long hall with my office at the other end. There's no door on my office and it's the only way to get into the rest of the house--so that's going on.

I'm trying to work on my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree novel which I was half way through when I got side-tracked to ghost write a thriller. Of course I did it because the money was good.

We have a grown grandson living with us who likes to check on what I'm doing, somewhat like my husband, he'll come and sit in the extra chair in my office.

Our next to youngest granddaughter is graduating from high school tomorrow night and we have company coming in from out of town--lots! Her married sister is having dramatic marital problems and had to be fetched by my daughter-in-law, which complicates all of the celebratory plans. I wish young people didn't think their lives should be like soap operas.

The next in the Tempe series to come out is expected in August and I'm busy planning the promotion for that.

So writing blogs is about the last thing that comes on the list--though I knew it had been awhile since I posted on this one. Now it's time to cook dinner.
