Oh, friends. Life has been...hard over my household. Between going in and out of doctor's visit for my daughter, the toddler's increasing separation anxiety and my husband currently on a drilling rig somewhere in the middle of the gulf, I must confess that I don't even think I accomplished one goal in September.
I did turn in my 13th piece to an online literary magazine, so my 12 pieces (1 piece/month) new year resolution is completed. I can technically keep going and see how many more I submit before the year's end, or I can just stop, listen to my body and mental health and rest for a while.
So change is coming. I have some ideas of where I want to go from here. I know writing has always been my salve and I'm going to tackle whatever comes head on. But for now though, I'll hit pause on the new ideas and continue market what I do have.
As far as my NaNoWriMo project, I found the perfect piece. A middle grade mystery type where the main character has a chronic illness and spends a lot of time in the children's hospital..... and somehow solves little medical mystery/crime. I haven't figured out what crime a 10 year old might solve, but there you have it, Universe. I'm breathing that out, not just to help my little one with her chronic illness and her meltdown with needles but for me.....
~ I will see you at the end of November, writing buddies. ~
I drink too much coffee, read too many books, and in between raising miracle babies, I find time to write.
