Switching to Summer Mode
Well, the days are starting to fly, so I better use this online journal to keep track -- otherwise, before I know it, it'll be fall and these vacation days will be a blur.
It's now been two weeks off... Let's take stock of what I've done...
Writing wise, I wrote a new picture book. (Today I revised it and sent if back to my agent. I'm quite positive about this one -- but don't I always feel that way if I send it to Abi? I guess so.)
I tinkered with Mean Squirrels and eventually set it aside. I wrote about 25 pages of the Flowers/Bradford stage play about an island resort.
I have also started a chapter book / middle grade time travel novel. I'm about 4000 words into, so still in the beginning stages.
May 17th: Last day of Creative Writing / Last Day of Spring Semester
May 18th and 19th: Grading papers / submitting grades.
May 20th: Renaissance Faire!
May 21st: Cheri came back from her conference... and then went to Washington state for a few days.
May 22nd - 24th: Served as uber-driver for the girls. Started to get sick.
May 25th - May 26th: Focused on dealing with my stupid cold. (Somehow managed to write a little.) Celebration / Memorial of a fellow homeschool parent.
May 27th: Worked on the book / Date with Cheri -- Duck Pond & Pei Wei Lunch / Watched Alien: Convenant
May 28th: Worked on the book / Watched Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2
May 29th: Memorial Day / BBQ with friends / Watched Pirates of the Caribbean 5
May 30th: Revised picture book / chauffeured the children / started playing D&D with friends.
So far, as you can see, it's been an incredibly enjoyable summer. Way too much fun!
