More Writing Going On...

You know what kills me is that after I wrote my last post, I went back to the previous post I thought might be similar to the one I'd just written, and saw that I copied myself almost verbatim with some added details. That was spooky, and really fascinating to me as I was really discussing the same piece of writing I had just finished and had been sitting on for years...I was just as angst-filled about it years ago as I was a couple weeks ago. Needless to say, I'm thrilled the piece has finally been written.

I don't think that piece will likely be picked up by the outlet I've submitted it to, and I don't think I'll submit it elsewhere if it does get rejected. Instead, I kind of see myself putting it into an anthology of similar works that I plan to have done one day. I've got higher hopes for my second story and for my current project, but we'll see what happens.

I just finished a first draft of another section of my current project. I know it's kind of rude to be so cagey about exactly what I'm working on, but I really think that due to its nature, it would be bad to get the idea out there before it's time. It's not anything controversial or anything, just something I'd rather keep secret for now. It's a non-fiction piece, and I've noticed that writing that has been a lot smoother than the fiction pieces I wrote before like I mentioned in my last post. It's just been easier for me.

Nothing else new to report, other than my youngest child just had her fifth birthday a couple days ago. My, how time does fly. I get nervous about the passage of time as I watch my kids grow up, worried that I'm missing it because I'm not around as much as I'd like to be. But, I guess that's what everyone goes through, and is the reason that grandparents love their grandchildren so much. Plus, I've had enough parents of older children reporting that their kids frequently move back in for a time, and since I'm guilty of this myself since being married (it was in-between my second and third years of law school when I interned at Young Living), it really must be more common than I think.

Well, enough for now. Just wanted to try to keep this habit going, even when I don't have much to say!
