As far as writing is concerned I’m still falling woefully short on getting the words down. Another couple of chapters are coming together, but it’s a bit of a slog and I don’t think the novel is seeing the best of me yet! But, I’ll keep plodding on as best I can until the autumn, when I will definitely have more time to allocate in the mornings. That will still afford 3-4 months to rack up some wordcount before the academic pressure kicks in with several assessed pieces of work to submit in 2013.
I do not want to wish the summer away, nor do I want to wish away the last few months before my youngest daughter becomes a preschooler. But looking forward to things is no crime, and I will embrace the summer as a result of knowing that when September comes, my favourite season will carry with it even more promise than usual this year.
