We could say that my June blogging break was very restful and relaxing, giving me time enough to enjoy writing and get a lot done on my to-do list.
But that wouldn't be very truthful.
I had planned on doing some editing on CoaL, and also write another 50K on RoaL, but that really didn't happen. I wrote furiously until June 11, putting a good 19K under my belt, but then life caught up with me. Instead of trying to kill myself, I dropped the 50K challenge and devoted myself to editing. I fixed most of the problems in CoaL, and now I'm having relatives be my first company of Beta readers to critic me and help me get CoaL ready to publish sometime I-don't-know-when.
It was a decision well made.
For one thing, I haven't even been home most of the last three weeks. We were at our classy blood cousins' house for 8 days in June, during which time we caught an awful cold, played way too much volleyball, and learned how to dishonestly honestly play the game of Bluff. It was epic.
And now, I am currently sitting in the family room of our CBC's house for a Forth-of-July-week-long visit. Yesterday, we celebrated the birthday of our country with way too much food, lots of laughter, and tons of good old-fashioned games such as tag, Mother May I, and Red Rover. When did we ever become too old for games like those? Yes, I'm 19 years old, almost 20, and I had as much fun running around barefoot as the 10-year-olds I played with.
So, to keep this post short, I just wanted to let you all know what's been happening to me these last couple of weeks I haven't been on Blogger, and now I must run. July isn't promising to be very time-friendly, either. But we'll just have to see what God has in store.
