Intersession, WIPs, MSs, A to Z


I know I talked about this last Saturday, but it's driving me crazy. I'm losing it over here. My 5yo is losing it too. I'm missing my 'me' time and she's missing being at school. It makes for a week full of grumpy mom and daughter with attitude. I even tried to do stuff to keep her entertained.

We watched a movie at one point, it lasted about thirty minutes. We played outside, but she didn't want me to play with her. We practiced T-Ball (batting, throwing, catching), she was done after ten minutes. She tore the house up and we cleaned it together (although I did most of the work while she whined about how much she hates to clean). We watched this one show she likes that is aweful, but we watched it. I tried to get her to do the right thing, listen and do what she was told, so that we could go shopping...didn't happen. Crafts, games, talking, playing, nothing...absolutely nothing made her stop being mad at me for her having to stay at home. Every day was a fight about how mean I am for not letting her go to school. And how Intersession is stupid and it must be my fault. It was so much fun *rubs temples*


I worked on my WIP all week. Can anyone tell me how to jump out of edit-mode and just write? It's so irritating. I have this darn story in my head, but as I write, I stop and go back to edit something. It's very slow going. I just want to get through my first draft, then edit, but it's not working.


When I worked on my WIP, my MS yelled at me for neglecting it. So, I had to give it some of my time. Why is the completed MS so demanding? I mean, I gave you almost a year of my time, can't you take a break so I can write something new? Is that really too much to ask...

A to Z

Ah yes, the challenge, it's finally here. Well, basically. You can still sign up-here, so if you haven't, go do it.
So, I've got my posts pretty much all figured out. I've written and scheduled some. I've worked my semi-theme out for most days. And my semi-theme for Fridays is only missing from one. So, I'm considering myself ready to go. Hopefully, I will be completely ready within the next few days.

Get to know one of the hosts - DL Hammons.

That's my week, all wrapped up.

Happy Saturday :)
