Where the Hell Did My Summer Go?

No, I didn't forget to post on Monday. I didn't have time. DH took a six-day weekend, and we tackled his office. We got a lot of stuff thrown out or packed for the move, but there's still a ton of work that needs to be done. And I have barely touched my office, much less the current wip.

Today, I made the mistake of looking at the calendar. It's already the last week of June, and my page production sucks the big one. Yeah, I'm packing. Yeah, we're moving. Yeah, it's got to be done by August 5th.

That's our target because public school starts two weeks later. That would give us enough time to get settled and GK enrolled.

Yep, the kid's heading back to public school. I have mixed feelings, but overall, I know it's the best move for him. Plus, I'll have more writing time, right?

Unfortunately, my sales are starting to reflect my lack of writer productivity. Hopefully, I can make it up this fall.

As long as my readers forgive the delay.

I'm definitely ready to strangle that stupid little voice in the back of my head.


  1. I absolutely hate the process of packing up a house and moving. We moved back in September so I can feel your pain. Good luck with it and good luck with your writing and deadlines.

  2. Thank, Savannah! What bothers me the most is that before Texas, I move every six months to two years because of my job. I'm appalled that I let myself collect so much junk or let so many things slide. I'm thankful we're moving to a smaller house!

  3. That's exactly what we did. I had a tri-level house and moved to a single story ranch that was half the size. I love it! I'm sure you'll love your new place once you get everything set up. So much easier and with less space, it's not as tempting to collect so much stuff.
