Sunny and warm

Incredibly busy few days. The biggest demand on my focus and attention is the new fantasy novel, INITIATE. Since I started writing it last Wednesday, I’ve written 125 pages (a third of the book) in longhand. It feels like the only reality — the stories and characters are real; everything else feels like a dream state. Any hours I am not working at the library, I am writing the book. I am incredibly grateful for this creative fire, but it makes navigating day-to-day life difficult, especially right now with so much going on. But the writing itself is good and solid and feels really, really right.

Saturday I worked at the library,and Sunday I came back to help out with a program/book launch, in and around working on INITIATE. On Monday I woke up convinced it was Sunday, so I forgot to send off some stuff I meant to get out.

We also have company coming at the end of this week (yes, during the conference), so we’re trying to get ready.

Yesterday was about running errands, going to Falmouth, getting the phone card, etc. And working on the book

This morning, I managed to get 1000 words done on the book, fight off an ant infestation, and mow the lawn before going to work.

It’s all good, just busy, and everything not connected to the book feels like it’s happening in a haze.

I’ll be at the Cape Cod Writers Conference this week — I’m on a panel on Friday night and, after, reading from TRACKING MEDUSA.
