Today is Monday, isn't it? I've already lost track.
I neglected so much today - I'm behind on emails, Facebook and reading my favorite blogs, as well as laundry and... well, everything.
But it's for a good reason: I spent the day writing... specifically re-writing the beginning pages of my book for the "We Love New Novelists" contest on She Writes. Once I took a hard look at them, I decided they weren't in shape to submit anywhere.
The deadline is tomorrow. I intended to get up early (as in 4am) every day this past week to work on it while the house was quiet, but that good intention fizzled by the second morning. I just had too many other things going on. Sleep and Procrastination won over Writing (as usual!)
So the pages I submit won't be as good as they would have been if I'd been able to spend a few focused hours on them every day for a week, instead of frantically writing for two days, but I'm just grateful for these two days free of (too many) other obligations and that I'll have something to submit!
Having this deadline in front of me stoked my writing fire; I'm determined to dedicate a couple of hours every day to keep it flaming until it's finished.
Now for the wedding part of this post... this morning I got word that my brother's new love is now offically his wife! Donnie and Donna sneakily got married at 6pm last night in a small church ceremony only an hour or so away. But I've forgiven him for not inviting us. I just hope someone took pictures!
This one will have to do for now - I took it during their visit a few weeks ago. Please join me in congratulating and asking blessings for this joyous couple, Donnie and Donna!
