I love my family. I thought I should preface this post with that statement, because for as much as I love them, damn do they detract from reading/writing time. There’s family visiting, there’s family moving in, and then with it being summer and all there’s other family that wants to do outdoorsy things. You know, the sorts of things where toting a laptop with isn’t exactly ideal, or there’s an entire lack of available wifi.
BUT… family is important and I love them, so as exhausting as it can be I wouldn’t change it for the world. Of course, this all sounds like a mountain of excuses for why I don’t have an updated word count. I am trying though. I’m still trapped in ch3 of the new WIP, and as for the finished manuscript I’m still working on querying. Two rejections and the others are a no response so far. I’ve been slowly working my way down the list on the MSWL site, so once I read the end of that list I’ll have to figure out where to go next. Probably querytracker and a whole lot of googling.
At any rate, that’s where I stand right now. I need to continue writing my WIP and querying my finished MS, read 3.5 completed rough drafts for my writer’s group, and find time to spend with my family and friends – all when I’m not working 8a-5p, M-F. Also, did I mention I’d like to continue my education at some point? That BA in Accounting won’t earn itself.
Thank goodness I don’t have kids…
