Farewell 2017. Hello, 2018! And a restart.

Noch Kay2

Hi! I know it’s been awhile. And I wish I had a really good excuse for not checking in. But I don’t.

Have I been writing? Yes and no. I was writing like a fiend up until the day before we left for our vacation. We headed out of Watford City, North Dakota on November 22nd to drive down to Galveston, Texas.

We took our son on a five day cruise for his 11th birthday. We visited the ports of Costa Maya (the picture is from the fabulous private resort at Nohoch Kay) and Costa Maya.

We got back to chilly North Dakota on December 3rd and I have yet to write a single word. Other than this blog post. I think I am stuck on ‘island time.’ I know my heart sure is!

I’m mad at myself for not getting my ass in the chair and finishing the last THREE chapters of book two of the Annunak Series! The characters have been harassing me. My editor probably thinks I’m stuck on an island in the Caribbean, somewhere. Friends have been asking me how the writing is going. And all I can do is shrug.

It might be because I’m distracted by life stuff. You see, I found a private school in Texas that specializes in nonverbal autistic kiddos. And I’ve been working on getting my munchkin enrolled for next year. But it means moving as soon as school gets out at the end of May so he can test it out over the summer semester. I’m a little stressed. That’s only about four months away. There are lots of things to figure out and coordinate. All by myself.

Hubby would like to help, but this is the busy season and he’s been working 90 – 100 hours a week. We’re lucking if we see him for an hour a day.

BUT! I have committed to finishing book 2 and getting it published before I pack up my office and head for warmer shores. Now, THAT part, I’m excited about. I’m over all these -20s temps!

I’m also going to try my best to post an update on all the craziness once a week. As well as figure out this whole ‘newsletter’ thingy.

So, if you’ve stuck with me this long, I thank you from the bottom of my frozen heart! Until next week, take care!

One thought on “Farewell 2017. Hello, 2018! And a restart.

  1. Well, I didn’t really think you were still on a tropical island but I kind of hoped maybe you were. Kind of wished we all were, to escape both weather and responsibilities. That is the only downside to vacations: coming back to reality! But welcome back–now I’ll expect to see some chapters flying out of that keyboard of yours.
