Wednesday Walkabout... Part Five

It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.

(I'm bringing along a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)

Walkabout, Week 5:

I am on a two-week writing hiatus. As of last Friday, I am spending an entire fortnight doing absolutely no writing. Why, you ask. Hmm. I sense the approach of bullet points.
  • Since the beginning of the year I have written 2 complete novels and rewrote/thoroughly edited a 3rd.
  • I have a ridiculously neglected house.
  • My children & husband miss me.
  • I miss me.
During my hiatus I am:

  • helping kids with homework
  • watching movies with the kids after homework is done
  • dating my husband
While the little darlings are at school I am:
  • stripping wallpaper that has been on the wall longer than I have been on the earth.
  • re-caulking the shower & tub
  • painting walls
  • climbing a lot of ladders and otherwise doing things that are kind of fun, a little intimidating, not necessarily safe for a klutz like myself, and entirely necessary
Have you had enough bullet points? I'm sort of on a roll with them, huh?

Well, one more, just for the fun of it. During this self-imposed exile from the world of writing, I had the privilege of giving my very first interview. That's right, folks, I was interviewed. Check it out:

Onya, mate!

See you Friday for this week's installment of I Need Friends Friday. You'll laugh. You'll cry. (You'll mostly just laugh.)

I hear ya with the home repairs. My husband and I just bought our first home--a 1980s foreclosure at an auction in Washington, D.C. We've completely gutted the place, so when you mention ladders and ancient wall paper I almost want to cover my ears!!
