I’m pleased to report I’ve started the new story. And got it named. The working title is Hello, Chaos.
Oddly enough that pretty much sums up my life the past week. Family doctor appointments can suck away so much time–judging from the other faces in the waiting rooms, nobody was thrilled to sit endlessly waiting for their name to be called.
Then I totally forgot I needed to get my income tax stuff organized. Actually I did fairly well this year. I kept good records for over six months. Which meant I had six months of receipts, etc, stuffed in a file waiting to be sorted. I’d like to say this wasn’t the norm for me, but well, that’d be a big ol’ fib.
Back to the writing life.
A couple of my minor characters who came fully named didn’t tell me they’d stolen those names from real life people living similar lives. The nerve of them. Hmm. Is this a clue about their character? Anyway, I googled the monikers and let’s just say they I gave these characters new birth certificates.
With luck, I can delve back into the story now. Heck, I might even make my self-imposed deadline.

I love that title! It sounds like it should be on a bestseller list somewhere. Seriously 🙂

I’m trying, Amy, but I haven’t made giant strides this week.
