Last week I mentioned that I reclaimed my beast desk that sits between my living room and kitchen. Needless to say, I’m dealing with daily traffic of my family, and getting used to being around everyday noise. It’s been a little distracting, but not too bad. When my daughter isn’t working, she stays outside with her husband working on one of a thousand DIY projects. My granddaughter likes to sit at the kitchen table on her laptop, occasionally interrupting me to share one of her YouTube videos. I can’t complain. I’m interacting with my family. That takes priority.
I finished my latest short story, and am going through it, making revisions. I’m counting on that having put aside one of my other stories for a breather, I’ll be ready to tackle it once again, this time putting the finishing touches to it. If I can get my head back in the game that far, it’s a major stepping stone to finishing my other stories. I need to finish all the tales I’ve started. Doing that, I’ll have more than enough to compile into a volume, which is a future goal.
I’ve already started book four of my Kindred series, but shelved it for now. I really need to finish all my other projects before I go back to it. Blindsided isn’t slated for publication until 2019, so there’s more than enough time to finish it. It’s hard for me though, because I enjoy the Kindred world I’ve created. I love all of the characters, and enjoy bringing them to life as they tell me their stories. Thank goodness Falcon and Ash are understanding. 😉
I’m still adjusting to the changes in my personal life, trying to focus on writing more. My days are beginning have a routine to them. I’ve started walking around my block a couple of times before I settle down to write. A Destiny Denied, book three of the Kindred series is with my Beta readers, and I’ve got a local book signing in a couple of weeks to look forward to. Life holds changes, while some things remain steadfast. I will adapt and overcome. I’m resilient that way.
Till next week,
