Update on What's Been Happening Lately

Sometime I think it's a good idea to share the fact that I have to do the same kinds of things as most everyone else.

Lately, I've been getting up earlier and earlier in order to work on the ghost writing project I'm involved with. I usually enjoy doing this--partly because I know the money will be forthcoming--but this one has been a bit more difficult than usual. Somewhat like doing a puzzle, trying to figure out where all the pieces fit.

Today, though, I had to fit in a few other chores. The dishwasher had to be run and three loads of laundry done--which then meant the dishes had to be put away, and the clean clothes folded. I also had to order a few things for the bedroom we're remodeling. I made lunch for hubby and I then a dinner that we can have a couple more times. Didn't do it on purpose, but after cooking for a family of seven, then for our six ladies when we had the care home, I still haven't figured out how to cook for two.

Hubby usually helps a lot, but right now he's the only one working on the remodeling project and I sure don't want to slow that down.

I've been asked to do a five day appearance on a blog--which means five separate articles that hopefully will be interesting enough for others to want to read, have to squeeze that in somewhere along the line.

My own manuscript is on the back-burner at the moment. This is killing me, as I'm at the most exciting spot, but to do it justice, I can't have something else hanging over my head. The ghost writing project is my first priority at the moment.

Saturday I'll be giving a presentation to the Writers of Kern on electronic publishing. Sunday, except for teaching Sunday School, I don't work. Next week we need to get packed and ready to head for Omaha and Mayhem in the Midlands. That will be a nice break. I know from experience, I won't get much work done--Mayhem is too much fun and there are too many people I'm anxious to see.

And that's what has been happening lately.

Sometimes life interferes with writing. In a way that makes writing more enjoyable, knowing it's there waiting for you.
