It's WAY Past Time To Write Another Book

Life is so busy and it's hard to sit down and write.

Yet, more and more, I feel the need to sit myself down and write another book.

I had started one a long time ago, but I've misplaced the printout, and the text is on an old big floppy, so I don't even know if I can get it moved onto a diskette or CD anymore. Hmmm, but it came to me as I was writing that my mom might still have an old computer with a big floppy drive. I'll have to ask her. I just want to copy the file, so maybe it'll work...

I also started a small cookbook, but I've neglected it. With my daughter growing up and getting ready to leave home (or at least that's what she says), she's going to need this so I'd better hurry up and get it done!

Anyway, the book I'm thinking about right now, well, it's been floating around in my head in the last week. I keep thinking about it.

I need to start working on it. This one is going to be fiction. Kind of near-future science fiction.

My kid is going to be taking a class on Tuesday nights, so you know what, I have a little QuickPad, so I can work on it during the three hours of her class. If I write a chapter every week, it'll be done by the time she's done with the class.

Hmmmm, you know, that's a plan, isn't it?

It's way past time to write another book. And now I have a plan.

I guess I don't have any more excuses -- it's time to write.

If your'e really short on excuses I could let you use some of mine I have some I haven't even touched yet. (lol).
Seriuosly I find it amazing how parallell our lives are at times. My daughter takes class a couple of times a week and has landed a part in a production that's comming upn in May.
Since none of this is real close to the house and with gas costing what it does I at least have time to do some reading while I wait on her. But i really want to get back into writing. Probably some short stories or magazine type articles. I have a very good one on the POC internet experience that I could sell if I would just take the time to do some editing.

LOL, isn't that the truth?!! I do some reading when my son is skating at the rink. Not during hockey though, I'm busy watching the game. I'm really getting into this hockey thing.
But writing is part of my life. All week long, I've been thinking about what I wrote last week and where the story is going when I pick it up on Tuesday.
It'll be a short night though, she's singing at an event first, then hustle off to class...
The story of my life. Always on the run.
