I think I managed to spend about an hour in front of the computer this weekend, maybe a little more, but it was mostly to catch up on blogs and the news and had nothing to do with writing. I managed to get a ton of things done around the house (I almost said 'stuff' there, but then I thought of Aaron and didn't want to turn him off from reading this immediately). Besides, do you really need an excuse to use a chainsaw? I don't know if this week will be any better. I might try to get a couple of hundred words down before the boy wakes up. If he gets up early enough I might head to the Durham Museum in Omaha because they have an awesome train exhibit, complete with real trains.
The rest of the week is choppy, especially with Thursday being the last day of school for my six year old. I think she has a t-ball game that day as well.
I haven't heard from an editor in weeks now, despite having 11 stories out in submission land and 5 of them have been out for longer than 100 days. One just hit the 500 day mark. When combined with my recent idleness at the keyboard this could be a long summer. Especially since my next story to be published isn't scheduled until August. *sigh* Anyway, these books aren't going to write themselves, not without my help anyway, so I will see you later. Have a good one.
