Anyway, I need to keep pushing on with life. The more I focus on taking care of my kids and working on my writing, the better I feel. I can't change what's going wrong. I need to keep going with the things I can control.
Okay. At least I should post an update on my writing progress since that's what this blog is supposed to be about. My WIP is about to cross the 40,000 word mark, which means it will officially be novel length (according to the opinion of many at least . . . the one consistent thing about word length is that no one really seems to agree entirely). It's a bit sporadic because I've been hopping around a bit, but I'm actually confident I'll get there in the end. There's potential in it. I just need to put in the effort, and of course have the confidence that I can do the story justice. After all, it is a story of a nation so divided along political lines that it actually results in the country splitting in half and eventually going to war. Seems appropriate for the times, does it not?
Still quite a way to go on that front, but after that I also have three completed novels that I want to revise, and a new novel that I've been toying around with for awhile. I have enough in my head to keep me busy for years.
Although, I have made one solid conclusion. If I manage to sell a book in the near future, I'm using the money to take my family on a mini vacation. I think we need it. How much do you think it would cost to go here?
