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.
