Between a relapse in my chronic illness that's put me in bed for the last few weeks and another intense editing round on book 2, I was shocked to look down at my calendar today and see it was June 21st.
When the heck did we get into the month of June? And how is it almost over???
But the edit round is nearing the end and I'm finally starting to get some wind back in my sails health-wise. Not to mention that after months and months of struggle and rewrites, I feel that book 2 is finally evolving from a pile of dung into an actual book. With interesting plot and characters and everything! Shocker! I feel like I'm waking up from this haze I've been meandering around in. My schedule for the past month: sleep, wake-up, work on the book till exhaustion and mental fog take over, watch tv, spend some time with my family, sleep again. Wash, rinse, repeat.
Meanwhile, the world has gone without me and somehow it's already summertime.
That's okay. I've had periods like this with my chronic illness before. It'll pass, and hopefully just in time to celebrate the summer sunshine. and come August 7th, going around to visit my book on shelves in bookstores around the city ;)
