It’s 1:06 am, Eastern standard time. I wish I was sleeping. But I’m not. Probably because I slept for ten and a half hours last night.
I totally deserved it. I’ve spent the last four days preparing cookies and pies for a friend’s wedding, plus had to work two six-hour days doing professional development (looking at student test scores from last school year, analyzing gaps, getting a feel for my incoming class, and discussing the NYS Core Curriculum and upcoming student learning objectives training).
I have been making some small headway on my writing, though. I’ve managed to do some revisions and editing on part one of the “magnum opus” and have a query letter I finally think I’m almost comfortable enough to send out. Plus I’ve been puttering away on my chick lit novella, and have outlined a couple short story ideas.
Two weeks until school starts. I can’t believe how fast the summer went by.
