Writing Challenges Suck
Right when I thought I'd have all this time for writing it turns out I don't. My kids started a new school year on July 6th, right when I was beginning a new writing challenge. I thought, "Hooray! I'll get so much writing in! I'll have 2/3 of a book finished by the end of the month." And then I realized that kids going to school means I have to get them ready for school. I know it doesn't seem like that big a deal, but who knew? Plus, I started going back to the gym and that eats up most of my mornings. Then I go home with my two youngest children and feed them lunch and entertain them until the other two get home from school. And then its time for homework and chores and making dinner. Why did I think I'd have time to write? I must be crazy.
