And, yet again, I’m running over the amount of words that I thought it would take to tell the story. Bones of Earth has, I think, two chapters left. There might be a third chapter hiding in there, though. So it will be a total of thirty-two or thirty-three chapters. We’ll see how the words fall out.

Writing has been challenging this past week. Every time I think I’ve figured out what we’re doing, something changes it. What changed last week was the results from the RWA Special Election. I am now on the RWA Board as a Director at Large. We all had to hit the ground running — we have a job of work ahead of us, and only five months to do it. So part of my new normal has been adding in daily board business.

What changed this week was that school started again… sort of. Florida school are still all closed. But class is back in session, at least virtually. At least… if they can get the technology to work! First day wobbles and all that. I’m thinking it’ll be worked out by the end of the week. Then I’ll have mornings to write while the kids do school.

I also have two evenings a week to write — several Circlet Press authors have started a virtual writing group, and we get together and do writing sprints. Those have helped incredibly!  More than half of my words last week were written in the two writing sprints I “attended.”

We’re still figuring out which way is up. It’ll take some doing — there is no normal any more. At least, not one that we’d recognize. Now it’s one day at a time, one moment at a time. One step. Then another. Keep moving.

The only way out is through.
