So it’s been about a few weeks since I’ve touched my short story – which is coming along quite well. The ideas were just flowing and flowing and they still do when I get a few moments to sit down and go at it. But I won’t lie, I don’t see myself writing much at all in the coming months unless I get lucky with my time. I’m a little sad about it, but hey, it’s all for a good reason considering my baby boy came home on the 18th (this past monday) after being in the NICU for a month. So as you might be able to tell, a LOT of my time has been taken up with many hours of caring for my son and then handling the other two lol. And even if he’s down napping and I have a few minutes to breathe, I’m probably napping myself to catch up on the lost sleep from the night before.
In addition, I’m going to be back to work in about a week. The five weeks of paid leave has been nice, despite the circumstances of Gabe being in the NICU, I needed a break from the road. So between work, the new baby, and everything else, we’ll see how my time is when it comes to writing… or if I even have any brain cells at the end of my day to do anything.
The one thing I have been procrastinating BIG TIME on is submitting my newly revamped manuscript on The Kingdom Come. Been several months since I finished the new edition – I guess I got somewhat exhausted from all the time spent submitting to the agents before, that the thought of doing that all over again already tires me. Plus, as I stated before it is a time issue with me. I don’t always have hours out of the day to sit at my desk and read over all the criteria each agent has when submitting work. So I would choose to either work on that or my short story… and lately it’s mainly been my short story that wins.
So who knows, maybe the little time I do find here and there to work on my writings will be devoted to resubmitting my manuscript. I am kinda curious to see what some agents have to say now about it… Although I’m partly nervous of more rejections with ‘I just can’t get into it’ lines.
Other than that, sorry I have nothing super important or huge to talk about, but I am thinking about submitting a taste of my short story on here for anyone to download and read. So stay tuned!
