I am so sorry for getting this post up late. All day today I have been thinking it is Monday. My nephew stayed the night again last night and will be here again tonight and all day tomorrow. He and his dad are currently moving. They should be moved into their new house by the weekend. I know he’s excited even if he doesn’t talk about it much. When he and his dad moved out of my parents’ house they had to leave behind their cat Stripes. They rented for about a year and a half but now that they are buying a home they can take their cat with them. I told my brother that I’ll be at his place often to visit Stripes. Every time I go to see my parents that cat curls up onto my lap.
So yesterday my nephew came over and again. I didn’t have to get my sister from work because she isn’t feeling the greatest which has thrown my days off. I spent all day today busily working on my newest project. It is a Christmas planner. I’ve been creating it and having a lot of fun. Tonight after a few games of Clue, I will get to write on my newest novel A Very Vintage Christmas.
I am about half way through writing that first draft. I already have my editor lined up who is expecting the first draft on the first of August. I’ve always wanted to write a Christmas story and I’m finally doing it. I don’t know how it is for any of you but I get lost when I am writing. There have been times the past few weeks when I have been lost in writing. Then when I have to leave to pick my daughter up from work I go outside, not expecting it to be as hot as it is. My kids have even been drinking hot chocolate. Wyatt has offered to allow me to watch Christmas movies to help me get in the mood to write but I haven’t needed to do that.
Do you get lost when you’re writing? Or in a book when you’re reading?
