The kids are officially on the bus, or already at school as I begin writing this post. What does that mean? A better writing schedule for myself. With a deadline of September 10th knocking on my door I need to buckle-down.
The summer had its highlights – fun days at the pool, theme parks, boating, zoo, etc. It had its low points too – too much rough-housing, too much xBox 360, 100 degree heat, too little reading (on my kids part).
As of today, though – we’re all on a new schedule. No more sleeping in during the week, no more “brunches”, no late-night television.
I like having a stricter schedule – and I prefer a quiet house for my writing.
I wish you all a wonderful week, whether you’re attending school or putting kids on the bus!! But I will be baking my homemade “Back to School Chocolate Chip Cookies” later this afternoon for the kids after-school-snack. That’s one annual tradition my family relishes! But first I #amwriting.
