The Doubting Writer Finds His Voice

No Post Monday

The title says it all.

Over the last two weeks or so, I’ve re-discovered the joy of pushing and working on writing in the short hours before I have to leave for work. Since the Catbird’s last day of school was one week ago (though, she doesn’t graduate for another 6 days, since all the non-seniors are encumbered with the wonderful thing called “Regents exams”), I don’t have to worry about making sure she gets off to school in the mornings. No lunch to pack, no need to march up the stairs every 15 minutes and pound on her door. So that leaves me some time in the morning to drink coffee, sift through blogs, and write. It’s not a lot of time, but it’s amazing how quickly I can wake up, and how much I can get done. Even with all the craziness of the last couple of weeks in terms of school-related things (dinners and banquets and awards and baccalaureates), I’m on track to turn in my manuscript to Carrie by the end of the month.

Here’s a good, wake-up tune:


Have a great week, all, I’ve got an hour of writing to get to.
