Can't we do something fun?


Here's a picture of one the flowers I actually grew in my windowbox! I'm so happy they're starting to bloom!

This was the question my eight year old asked me today. This is weekday #2 of Summer Vacation.

It's going to be a long, long summer.

I figured after that, the day would turn out to be largely unproductive, but I managed to do a little bit of editing and then, after dinner, I hid in the basement and knocked out 20 pages on Rogue Theta. I'm so glad I got over the hump between the end of the short story I'd already written and the beginning of the 'rest' of the story I still have to write. I don't feel quite as useless as I did this afternoon.

If I have to get the major portion of my work done at night for the summer, then so be it. As long as I can turn this into a full length novel by the end of August, I think I'll be content. It's not going to be easy, but I'm determined to make the most of this opporutnity to get my foot in the door at EC.

I wish you a "quick" summer. (I have 3 kids of my own). I notice you sometimes comment on other writers here. Have you read any of Brenda Joyce's work? I'm new here & just lurking around your site. Can't wait to read some of your work.

Hi Sidney! Thanks for dropping by. I haven't read Brenda Joyce, but I just checked out her site. Looks like there's a lot to choose from! The next time I have some book money I'll have to check out her work.
