Anyone that has elementary aged school children knows May is HUGE. It's just so busy. There's field trips and water days and end of the year everything.
This May, was especially busy. We had my daughter graduating from high school, along with all the other stuff I had going on at school. And her birthday is at the end of the month.
June was vacation and after that week, Things finally started to settle. Then I had time to really WRITE.
Which makes me happy.
Our summer break lasts for 10 weeks, which sounds like a long time, but when you're trying to cram as much writing as you can into every morning, it turns out that it goes by pretty fast. Then there's the house that I'm supposed to be keeping clean, now that I'm home.
My husband thinks I can pump out a novel and only write an hour a day. He doesn't get that it takes me three or four hours of writing and revising to get anywhere good.
So then he fusses if I'm on the computer for more than a few hours in the morning on Saturday.
And then asks me when I'm going to be done with it.
Is there anybody else's spouses doing that to them?? Or is it just me?
I didn't mean for this to become a rant and rave session. I'm not usually like that, but it's frustrating when you work really hard on something and get pretty far and then have to limit your time again because you have to go back to your real job.
Anyway....if this is you...keep on keepin' on is all I can say. 'Cause that's what I'm going to do.
Happy Writing People! Don't give up!
