It is bound to be a busy few days — from now through Sunday. I’m working a half-day tomorrow, and my mom-in-law is coming to play with the children in the morning while I work. Then all of the sibs on that side are coming for dinner Friday night. Saturday we’re throwing a birthday party for the little one, who will be two on Sunday. Saturday night after the party we’re hosting dinner for out-of-town family. So busy! Also lots of fun! We’re throwing baby girl’s party at the community center, with an “open gym” theme. So even us grownups get to bounce on the gigantic trampoline. Better yet, our tiny house doesn’t have to be sparkling clean, and bursting at the seams like if we try to throw a party here. I’m still not ready for all of the hosting, though. Now starts the scramble where I try to fit prep for that in between usual life. Hmm….that always goes so well. 🙂
On the writing side, I’ve fit in 1,600 words on my WIP since Sunday, so that’s pretty much right on track with my 500 per day goal, even though I didn’t write on Monday because I didn’t feel well enough. I’m still waiting on edits to Queen Witch, which I should have in hand by the end of the long weekend. Then I’ll start my all-out sprint to publishing that baby — finally!! I’m looking forward to scratching another book off of my long, long list. I don’t suffer for ideas, and (I see it as fortunately or unfortunately depending on the day) most of my ideas end up BIG. Will I ever write something standalone? Who knows.
I’m excited for the start of the Autumn’s Harvest Blog Hop tomorrow! I hope a bunch of you stop by and enter to win the awesome grand prizes and individual giveaways on more than 200 participating blogs. A BIG thank you needs to go out to Carrie Ann Ryan for organizing these blog hops. She makes it super cost-effective to participate in something much larger. I’m hoping to make some new blogger and reader friends over the four-day hop. So check in tomorrow if you’re interested, and hop with us!
