No story part today! DOG finished up last week, so the free downloads are just a click away, and I'll be starting a new story on July 4th. It's a fun little fantasy I've been working on that feels like the start of something bigger, but I've only gotten the start so I guess the rest is for someone else to write.
Or it'll show up later in my life and take over until its written completely. That happens, too.
Yesterday was the final day of school for my kids. They are now officially finished Grade 3 and Kindergarten! And I'm officially finished with being Ms Mom for this school year! I may have to be Ms Mom again next school year, but for right now I can just be me. The summer goals include a lot of catching up on missed writing time, sporadic attempts to rescue the garden from the weeds, and hopefully a weekend or two with my sister.
I know, "super exciting plans" right? I'm super excited about them. :D
I have some short stories that need to get written, an odd romantic story that started short and is becoming a very cute romance of novella proportions, an attempt at finding some more beta readers for my latest sci-fi novella (Daion Echoes through Transglass), and a lot of things to add and change in my big manuscript. It's a lot of writing stuff to do. I'm kinda in love with this list this morning. Not focusing on writing for the past four months has been hard. It's also messed up my mental health, as apparently I function better as a human when I have stories pouring out of my brain instead of stoppering up the ideas until they sour and fester. Icky imagery intentional.
I hope you're staying safe and well this week. Please don't forget that the pandemic isn't over.
