On Summer and Writing

It's happened every year since I went back to work. At the beginning of the summer, I think about how much time I'll have. How much writing I'll get done. How many queries and submissions I'll send out before school starts and I go back to work.

But during the summer, life gets in the way. And that's okay.

Summer is for the kids. It's meant to be filled with days of doing little or nothing, of playing in the sun or relaxing in the shade. Staying up late, going to the movies, taking trips near or far, doing projects we might not have time for during the school year.

So what if I'm having fun with my kids instead of writing as much as I wanted to? Soon enough my kids will be grown up and I'll have more writing time that I'll know what to do with!


  1. I am totally with you.

  2. Spending time with the kids is so important! They grow up so fast... and just look how fast the summer has flown by...


I would love to hear from you!
