Okay, I had a plan and it was a good one. I arranged to have help for two afternoons last week so that I could write. But the universe had other plans. For the first day, one of my kids had a stomach flu, so I cancelled the sitter. (Making the sitter sick = bad) I did get some writing done, but nowhere near the amount I was hoping for.
Second day, it was my turn to be sick. I have not yet reached the point in my skills where I can write beautiful fiction from the bathroom. It's a personality flaw, I suppose.
At least we managed to all be healthy for the holidays, so I will accept that as at least a little bit of a win.
I should hear about my line edits sometime next week. I have the week off, with plans to have a good time with my boys before they go back to school. So I'm not going to put too much pressure on myself. That can wait for January 4th when I start back on the regular program of balancing writing and day job while the kids are at school.
