A Day in the Life
Yesterday, I received word that the proposal for RUNNING SCARED had been approved. This is the second book in my Heroes for Hire miniseries, and I've been anxiously waiting to hear whether or not my editors liked what I'd sent in.
Now that I've got the go-head, I can write the remainder of the story.
But first I needed to clean my house.
And do six loads of laundry.
And make lunch for five kids.
And clean up after lunch.
I marshaled the troops and gave them the call to action. Twelves hands (my husband had to work this morning) make light work. At least they're supposed to. The boys are young men now, and they're quite good at doing the assigned tasks. The girls....well, let's just say I had to follow along and clean up after their clean up. It was cute watching them, though.
Now the house is clean, the kids are happily playing, the husband is practicing for praise band...and I am free to write.
For a while.
I'm sure the peace won't last long. But, really, that's just the way I like it!
