Balancing on time's tightrope

Monday, May 5, 2008

I have to admit, there are not enough hours in the day for me right now. Within the next month I have two trials plus the normal workload. I come home, really dragging. Here and there I have moments of moral victory and get a little writing done. In fact, two weekends ago I had planned to go back to the family room makeover when the urban fantasy that I've been mulling over for some time decided it was ready to be born. I wrote the first chapter over the course of a Sunday. Since then I've written another 1/2 chapter. Not much, granted, but I keep eeking out a line here and a line there.

On the nights I come home, stewing over the work day, then I chip away at the family room. I'm hoping to take a 4-day Memorial Day weekend to knock out stripping off the carpet and then laying the tile. But I'm also hoping to finish the urban fantasy proposal as I just love, love, love the story so that may be the winner in terms of time. I once wrote in my high school senior yearbook that I needed a 48-hour day...still need it. :) Carol
