Today is the last day of school. Besides writing, I also teach 11th grade English. Today I have to give two finals, and then it's on to Memorial Day weekend. My children and I bought Six Flags season passes and we're going to start tonight.
As the year winds down, one of the treadmills that I run on will be turned off for a few weeks. I'll focus primarily on finishing the book due July 15 and also on writing something my agent has been wanting for a while.
I'm discovering that life is a balance. My family and I also plan to travel--July right now is wide open. Instead of doing RWA, I'm going to simply take off. We're also going to be tourists in our own town as well--doing things like attending a NASCAR Busch series race and going to the top of the Arch.
I dropped my August cover in because my Capturing the Cop cover is over in the bar to the right. Its run is finished this weekend, and it moves to a place in my backlist. The Marriage Campaign replaces it. By August, I'll be back in school (August 1 to be exact), once again turning on the treadmill and starting to run for the next 10 months. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
So, nothing really profound today. Just a wish for everyone to have a wonderful summer and may you find joy each day.
