Coming up for air

I cut 16,000 words out of the novel I’m editing, and now I need to let it sit for a while.  I also just got the digital galley for “The Earth Is All That Lasts,” which is coming out as an ebook from Phoenix Pick, and I’m…stalling before I start on it.  Just don’t feel like getting my head into that today.  And I’m still fiddling with the ending of a short story and have to let that rest again, too.  So what better time to post on my blog?

But let’s skip the writing topics and talk family for a minute.  Our younger daughter and her husband are opening a brewpub in Prescott Valley, AZ–exciting times!  More news when I have it.  And our other son-in-law is applying for a position in the same town.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have them all so close by?  My husband retires soon.  We’ll be able to travel more, spend a little time helping the kids with their exciting projects.

Writers never really retire.  Sometimes I get discouraged and think I should, but then I get back into a novel or short story I’m working on and I get all wrapped up in it again.  Then I know I’ll never quit.  Now, if I could just find an agent who believed in me who didn’t retired, die, or leave the agency….  Yeah, I know, helps if I put queries in the mail.  Another thing on my to-do list, right after proofing “The Earth Is All That Lasts.”
