As a mom of an active infant, who'd rather play than sleep, my life is
Factor in that my husband is deployed, virtually making me a single parent, and "a bit crazy" becomes:
Every day things are so scattered, especially my thoughts, that writing is like mission impossible.
Deep down I know I'll get into the zone again, but the real question is WHEN.
My editor has given me a deadline for revisions of Kindred book two along with the hefty task of slashing 10,000 words. Yes, I write long. The deadline for book three is approaching. And I'm terrified I won't get it all done.
Terror of course only amplifies the chaotic energy swirling inside my head.
Fortunately, my husband came home for a long visit (mid-tour down time) and brilliantly suggested a family vacation.
He is my best friend, my confidante, my hero, the sun to balance my moon. Thanks to him, I've gone from scattered to serene, and hopefully several steps closer to getting back into the zone.
Thank you Alex for IWSG.
