Summer has flown by with out much in the way of blog entries. It’s not that we’ve been sitting around watching the grass grow with nothing of interest happening. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Our summer has been filled with more upheaval and chaos than any I can remember. The result has been lack of time and focus on writing.
Now that things are again taking on the normal beat of summer, I find I am comforted by the craziness of getting kids and animals off to fair and preparing for the excitement and fun that will follow. This is normal for us, routine even, and possibly the first thing this summer that can fit into that category.
I was able to make some needed changes in A Typical Summer for Lilly McGilly and get it sent in to my publisher. Now, I wait. Every few days I check the Capstone website and look for new book covers. I can’t wait to see the one for Lilly.
I’ve been plugging away at my current WIP, but I wonder if it will really be ready in September. Unfortunately my computer died last week at just over a year old. Fortunately, HP covered the repairs under a warranty extension for that model. That and a lot of help from a very computer savvy friend have been huge blessing for me this week. I sent the computer to HP on Saturday and today I was notified that they have fixed it and it will be back home from Tennessee tomorrow (Wednesday). Isn’t that awesome?
In other big news, our dear friends welcomed their seventh child into the world yesterday. She’s a real cutie and, even though this is the sixth girl in this family, her parents were able to come up with a splendid name for the little tyke. Just think about that. With a first and last name for each girl, that means agreeing on twelve girl names. Amazing.
