Time Flies

…when you’re both working on a story AND having fun!

In the past 6-8 weeks I have written a little over 10,000 words on my novel (working title: The Eyes Have It), enjoyed two brief vacations, put the final touches on plans for a high school reunion (coordinated with other committee members), AND planned an upcoming two week vacation, along with what seemed like daily social events, medical/dental appointments, and assisting a friend going through radiation and chemotherapy for lung cancer.

So I hope you’ll give me a pass for not posting here!

All in all, I’m happy with the last two months. Progress on Eyes is moving along nicely. If professional feedback is any indication it is by far my best novel yet, and quite different from the first three, since it doesn’t target a primarily female readership. I’m months away from completion, but it is moving along.

Reviews of the reunion, which occurred over Columbus Day weekend, have been glowing. We can thank the superb work of a dedicated and determined planning committee:

enthusiasm of attendees, an incredible DJ (along with his photo booth and props), beautiful fall weather, and hospitable venues! While most people are understandably nervous about seeing people they may not have seen for fifty years, somehow all the years washed away as memories of good times past flooded in. I highly recommend the experience.

Now and for the next week, I have a saner schedule. As our two week vacation approaches, I hope to focus on writing, both my novel and here, and other writing-related activities.

Sometimes you just have to ride out the uncontrollable busy periods and not sweat what isn’t getting done! See you again soon!
