I’ve been a little busy lately…and a little lazy. First, my old laptop died. Looks like I will have to get another one. I’ve been expecting that because it was old. Other things have been pressing upon my time. The net result is I haven’t been writing.
I’m not too irked about that, either. I’m just in a place right now I don’t really care whether I write or not. I’ve been here before. It will pass. I know from experience it’s not a big thing. Meanwhile, I am still planning my US/Mexico border trip to research the new Haxan novel. I plan to leave April 23, but that date is not set in stone.
Weather has gotten better here in the last week. It has warmed up outside and I need to go walking. It always helps to clear my head and the exercise is an added benefit.
I am debating whether or not I will do a vegetable garden this year. I think I will. Last year it was so hot and dry the garden didn’t do well. I haven’t seen any news it will be better this summer, so I’m not sure how it will turn out. Also, there are some house repairs that have to be done. Everything seems to be crowding in.
But as for writing I am feeling pretty good about where I am so far. Even if I’m not currently writing. I am still excited about the new novel, excited about the trip, and looking forward to getting back to work on it. As I mentioned, I’ve been in this place before. I u+sed to get all upset and angsty about it. Not anymore. I”ve been doing this writing thing long enough to know the current phase will pass.
I know I have also been neglecting this blog. Part of it is because while I am using another laptop, it’s not my laptop. I have to get a new one. I definitely have to get a new one before the border trip! :)
All in all, things have been going pretty well. Considering. Quite honestly, I don’t have any room to complain. I need to write more. But every writer always needs to write more so that isn’t earth shattering, either.
