I’ve enjoyed summer despite living in fire country, which means our vital documents are packed in travel boxes until maybe November, pet carriers lined up in the garage, everything ready to be loaded, if necessary. My summer-normal. Yours, too?
I had a brief vacation by the sea–so close, we could walk our meals to the beach and picnic to wave music. Very heartening, actually, as most mornings and evenings a juicy-cool fog seeped over coastline from Monterey to San Simeon, tamping fire danger. Right on.
Now it’s August and I’m home and focused on my 3rd draft of the 1st 1/2 of the new novel…obsessing on the 1st 1/2 as there are fall submission deadlines I’m interested in.
By the time my teen starts high school (only next week wut!), I will be editing the 2nd and most challenging 1/2 of the novel, its airborne action, the relationships changed forever, and revisiting the mom I refuse to kill.
Yours in continuing to be productive wherever you reside,
