Walkabout Wednesday: School's In Session!

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 51:

School started this week.

That alone should be today's entire post. Any parent with school age kids understands just how much that sentence says. It implies a mixture of nerves and excitement, shouts of gladness mingled with a hint of sadness. This was the longest summer we'd had since my children started school (and I mean that literally and figuratively).

It was a fun summer and we had some grand adventures. It was also a miserable summer, as my kids discovered a plethora of new things to argue about. The new school year means no more sleeping in or staying up late to watch a movie just because we want to. The time has come to be responsible and organized once more. This makes me just a little sad.

However, in the midst of all the preparations and countdowns and back-to-school shopping I felt a growing bubble of glee. I would soon return to the world of a working author!

During the summer I only write while the kids are asleep or during the occasional movie. In other words, I don't get a lot of writing done during summer break.

Now I have a precious few hours every day when the house is clean and silent and I can finally get the voices in my head to spill out onto the paper and leave me alone. Ah, bliss!

Welcome back, Sarah M. Eden. Welcome back.

Is it terrible that my son is only 17 months old, yet I'm already looking forward to school?

I'm excited to see what you'll come up with!

See, I'm a teacher. So it's just the opposite for me.
