It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I try to post at least once a month and today’s the last day of July! The reason why this day just doesn’t roll past me is because it’s my birthday! As birthdays sometimes do, it’s making me reflect a bit over the last couple months.
My summer has been very busy – to say the least. Once school let out (and the teachers were released – we have to stay past the last day for students), my husband and I went on vacation. A real vacation. We haven’t done that in almost eight years! Don’t worry, despite being on vacation from “real life” I did continue to write.
The day after we got back, I was training teachers for the summer program I teach in. Maybe you can guess the program? Then it was prep for that program since the students would be moving in later in the week. Since then, it’s been the summer program. Fun. Exciting. Busy! But, yes, I still wrote. During these past several weeks, I’ve been working on getting to a scene that’s pretty significant and I’m just about there. So I’m thrilled about that!
On Saturday, the summer program wraps up and I’ll have much more time to focus on writing. I know many of you have been aching to get your hands on Summering. I don’t have a specific ETA on it, but I’m really hoping to get it done before the year is over. If I can do that, then it could be out as early as January 2014. Don’t hold me to it. But I’m trying!
