The melody of the old 80’s song is filtering through my mind, but being ultra-happily married, I’m not really talking about “lovers.” I’m talking about things that absorb my time!
If you’ve noticed many of my Facebook posts, you know that I’m digging the Olympics. Loving the volleyball! The four different tournaments will last almost the entire three weeks, but at this point, there are only about 4 matches per day (instead of 16) in which I’m interested. And the gymnastics is winding down at the same time – wasn’t our US women’s team amazing??? Oh, and the swimmers! So excited for the way our team performed. It’s been a GREAT Olympics so far.
However, I’m a writer. So it’s time to give up the outstanding court and beach play and grind a few inches off my nose with my keyboard.
I had a great session with my crit partners last night! I warned them ahead of time that I’ll be posting pictures of our critique session next week. They can get brutal, but at least this week my work-in-progress (Candy Cane Crush) came out virtually unscathed. Yea!
With about a third of this romance completed, I’ve introduced the main characters, shared their hopes and fears, and hinted at the destructive element. I’ve got a mini-mess that I have to create and resolve, but then I’m rolling downhill into the catastrophe. This story is practically writing itself! And it’s a good thing since we start homeschooling again next week. Yikes!
How is the end of your summer going?
