Finding time to write during a chaotic week

It’s been an interesting week.  Long, in some ways.  I got zero writing done.  Between the hubby being out of state on business (he came home on Tuesday, in time to readjust to west coast time on the 4th before going back to work), and a house full of extra kids, I just didn’t get any progress done.

That’s not to say I didn’t THINK about things, or write in my head.  I do that most of the time anyway. 

Our oldest turned 14 over last weekend, while my hubby was out of town.  Besides having a back yard full of teens for the party, she had one friend who spent an entire week with us.  Making sure I was available to them became the priority.

I did, however, get to be Casey Ryan’s guest on The Cutting Room Floor this morning!  His show is amazing, and I had a blast.  Here’s where you can go to hear the interview, if you’re so inclined.  http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/audioPop.jsp?episodeId=640643&cmd=apop

What’s next?  A bit of quiet, I think.  It’s going to be a few days before my girls will have friends spending the night.  I need a break from having extra bodies in the house to supervise, transport, or feed.  LOL

I’m getting the writing itch again, so I’m hoping to push through the rough draft of ‘Son of Corse’.  My first reading/signing event is just over a month away (August 25th, at Fantasium Comics in Federal Way, WA.  Contact Paula via www.fantasiumcomics.com for details), and I’d love to be able to go from saying “I’m working on the sequel” to “it’s with my crit partners and editor friend, Tony Rudzki” if anyone asks about it.

Tonight, it’s about relaxing with friends.  We’re hosting dinner for a friend and her fiancee tonight.  I just got the roast in the oven 20 minutes ago and the aroma’s already making my stomach grumble.

Spending time with friends can really make my creative juices flow!
