I've got a lot going on. My mind is spinning.
I have homework to do. I say that with a giggle because I'm 44 and haven't had homework in about 20 years. This weekend I suggested my kids should have a homework party. When I went in to check on them, they were just studying quietly in the same room. I told them they were doing it wrong and made appetizers before joining them. We worked and then took breaks and then worked more. I didn't do homework - I wrote a chapter.
I'm at the cusp of the very difficult part - the turning point. The one that will make people cry or maybe squirm. The part of the story that's the reason for writing it.
My previous WIP is beckoning me to revise it - it's so close.
Another novel wants to be written but needs to wait. I plan to do a book review on a book on this time period (post Civil War) for homework, but I want to finish the novel I'm writing (post World War I) before I get my head in a different time period. That isn't going to happen.
So I need to write as my priority and somehow segment my day into sections - writing time and homework time. I need to segment the historical research too.
I need to make time for the cooking and cleaning and bill paying and all the other things I do that no one notices. I wonder if they'll care if I stop.
