My kids are winding down for the night. No…my kids are SUPPOSED to be winding down for the night. There is a difference. Showers taken, home made Macaroni and Cheese eaten and diapers changed. The transition to bed has started.
I pulled out my novel and worked on it, writing four pages by hand. It is a small step, but a step nevertheless. I plan to work on it some more tonight. It is much better to keep at it. I have had too long a break. So now I buckle down and continue my story. I am forty two or forty four pages in and that feels wonderful! I have also rolled some ideas around my head to try in my fantasy novel as well as some ideas for short stories. I have plenty of projects that I can work on. Now I need to make sure that I take the time to develop them.
I still need to clean off my desk again. It is currently covered with toys that the boys got for Christmas, I have no idea why. I have several things that i need to accomplish and the list grows every day. What I am trying to remember is that while my list lengthens, the amount of available time in a day does not. There will always be more to do, but I need to take the time to do things for me. Still a lesson I am trying to learn.
Having said that, I am going to get off here and get to typing up my novel as I watch some TV. It’s good to multitask.
