Actually, the last two days have not been too bad. I’m still working on getting up early, but the two hours per day writing are happening anyway. They just happen in the midst of chaos, TVs in the background, while eating lunch; many of you know that drill!
After having to reject a few ideas for the new essays, on Monday I found a call for book proposals, which are due July 22. If I get accepted, it won’t be a long book, or a particularly interesting one, but that’s okay! Fingers crossed on that one.
Most exciting was a light bulb going on about some fun writing. I was talking about some people I knew in graduate school who turned their academic knowledge into fiction writing when the professorial job market tanked. Hmm, voilá, I say to myself. Even though I have to keep that thought on the back burner right now, it is sizzling along nicely on the rural pathways of my brain.
So definitely, a good couple of days.
