Glitch in Writing Time

You know, just when I get on a roll, the wind gets knocked out of me! After such a great weekend for writing, I come to a screeching halt. Today, Tuesday, and Wednesday the kids get out half-days of school for end of 9 week conferences. Why would they do something so stupid? I mean, really....with the gas prices up, you'd think they'd consider just closing for one full day for the conferences--hey, the school buses wouldn't run for a day, saving a day's worth of gas. Think about this....all the schools in the district, all the buses that run for each school, the gas to do a run each morning and each afternoon for each bus for each school...come on, that could save some money. MY money...the taxpayers' money. I mean, am I the only one who considers such things? But anyway, I go back to my point....so now, I have to stop writing like at 11:30 (yeah, I'm past that point anyway now! LOL) to get dressed to go get the kids, leaving here at 12:15. Therefore, my writing time is all jacked up! And, I have my family coming up this weekend for Halloween, so I need to clean the house. Don't you just hate when life interrupts writing?? UGH

Thank goodness. Three chapter to critique in one weekend is enough. I know what you mean, though. I've been rolling pretty good with editing Soul Searcher, and then things get in the way. Church council meeting tonight. Double Ugh with extra sprinkles. Well, someday, like when we're 80, we can sit for days on end and write. That is, when we're not napping.

Had a full house in In School Suspension so was able to get in some writing. You're getting two chapters, Robin!

Robin Caroll said...

Beebster, thought we'd BURNED that ugly, nasty, hole-y, disgusting purple nightshirt. We didn't? Hmm....I need to correct that! LOL And no, you may NOT tell people about the "real" me...even if you're offered an ENORMOUS amount of money to give the dirt! LOL

Mac said...

Yes, but I can tell some dirt 'cause she will probably use mine in one of her books-so watch out missy!! BB-I CANNOT BELIEVE you still have that disgusting purple nightshirt-that thing has to be as old as me by now-Rob, we really need to get rid of it!!!

Robin Caroll said...

Mac said...
