It’s been a bit stormy and wild here, lately…dustups may be par for the course, over a series of windy days…
I completed editing Finding Esta, and sent the file off to Shah Wharton…or so I thought. Turns out I sent her back the same master copy she sent me. When I tried to send the version that I had edited, I couldn’t download it. So I searched my hard drive for the appropriate file…opened it – and, three times over, encountered a Runtime Error that shut down the entire Kindle Reader app.
Fortunately, my mind sees words, so I have begun recreating the process via my LibreOffice program….I can copy and paste, or save to whatever system works best for her…and I can send a few chapters at a time, so she’s not waiting for everything another dozen days or so – I am aiming to complete three chapters a day…
There’s a lot of upheaval going on, in my writing world – good upheaval, but it makes for some stress and floundering as I work out how to fit in all the bustle…
The kids’ quarterly homeschooling reports are due on March 1, and I have joined Kristen Lamb’sWANA 113 Blogging for Brand Class. The first assignment has already posted, and I still haven’t gotten my contacts listed, or stopped by to say hello to my classmates.
At the end of the month, I will be spending a day with WANACon.
In non-writing stuff, we have two kittens to spay this month, before spring brings them into heat, and the male cats in the neighborhood sniffing and peeing around our door.
It will all settle, and there may be rainbows….

Finished editing Finding Esta (and begun again).

That feels like plenty, for this tumultuous time….things will settle out, again, and then, there will be more…
For now, though, I am giving priority to the class, the editing, and the reports, and I will see where that carries me over the next days…
Are your writing skies cloudy? Clear? Are you like me – hovering in the midst of it all….?
