I'm in Las Vegas for the weekend. No, I'm not here to hit the poker table or slot machines, I'm here to see Pop. He's in town from Hawaii and the seven hour drive to Vegas is a heck of a lot easier to make than the miraculous journey it would be to drive to Hawaii. It's been a nice visit thus far.
On a not-so-great note, I woke up to another rejection today. Yay. Can you hear the enthusiasm?? It's kind of a sucky way to start a trip, but what's a person to do. You can't get accepted without risking rejection. I've been lax on sending out submissions, what with finishing chapters for the LDStorymakers First Chapter contest and preparing for this trip, but I'd like to get back in the saddle with it come Monday. Well, like may not be the best word to use there, but it's something I need to do.
Sorry I've not been around much lately. It's just been insanely busy. Next week I've signed up to do a Book In A Week challenge and though I know I won't finish an entire book in a one week, I'm going to devote four hours a day to the project and see if I can't get myself writing daily again. I am finding that I have to schedule my writing time in just like any other project. It's the only way I can rationalize spending so much time on a project and neglecting my household duties. I'm learning how to work around that though. After all, I've got two great helpers living in my house who need to learn how to work just like I did when I was their age . They're learning all kinds of responsibilities and their help allows me the time to write, so I figure it's a good exchange. They get to learn the value of work, and I get to stay sane.
A perfect solution, if you ask me.
