Today, a rare and miraculous thing is happening... shh, don't talk too loudly or you might wake me out of this dream... I have the day off. Home. Alone. All to myself.
My school has a nice, long President's Day weekend (today and Monday off) but Hubby and Children's schools do not. Eeeeeevery now and then there is an advantage to following three different school district schedules. Sometimes. Ok, rarely, so I have to celebrate it, lol. We are all off on Monday and then on Tuesday when the rest of us go back to work, Tootsie Roll has a random inservice day. (That's more like how things usually work out.)
So after I spent the morning dropping kids off, futzing around, coffeeing up, texting Handsome Hubby to try to make him laugh during his inservice today... I sat here. And began. To write.
And OH MY GOODNESS! I have been doing a lot of thinking since my CP's very helpful comments and have needed to cut and rework some things, so today I got to actually sit quietly and work on it. And a problem that I have had with the beginning being too expositiony and not enough "let's get to the interesting stuff"y is beginning to work itself out.
Is this what being a writer is like? Not having to steal an hour after kiddies are in bed to jot down a few paragraphs? Cause, seriously, sign me up!
p.s. - Yeah, I know. It's not that simple. And life is always busy, even if you are home alone during the day. But it's me who's dreaming here, so let's pretend, shall we? Cause I am loving this day!
