I'm Glad That's Over

Truly.  I spent far too much time watching the Olympics over the last two weeks, although I probably wouldn't have written much anyway.  You know, the blurred vision and dizziness thing.  So a couple of weeks on the couch was not a disaster.  But I'm ready to dive in again.  I've written 30,000 words of India #4 and plan to finish the first draft by the end of September.  Is that really just six weeks away?  Yikes.  I need to get cracking.


  1. I'm sure once you hit that writing groove India and company will be causing mayhem or solving mayhem...and then you'll be like, wow that went by fast. You're a good writer Carol and you've had a break with all the Olympics dazzlery so I'm sure you'll find your rhythm and meet your deadline, or else this groupie is going to have to come visit you and do some personal encouragement!

  2. There's something really pleasurable about the idea of finishing a draft in six weeks. That's always a good moment because it feels as if the heavy lifting is done.
