It's been a very long week. Come to think of it... it's been a very long couple of weeks. We've had a multitude of committments that all seemed to fill up our calendar. DD went from two weeks of play production that kept her at the high school late, sometimes until 11pm to having softball practice everyday after school until early evening. My DS's projects are wrapping up as well as they count down to the end of their elementary school years and work toward getting geared up for middle school. Through it all I've been checking off tasks left and right and still finding it hard to fit in the things that I need to do or want to do. Hubby and I are rallying best we can, but sleep seems to be going by the wayside along with other struggling issues. Getting time to write is one of those things. I'm sure I'm not alone.
The short mystery that I'm working on was going really well, but I find myself going back again and again to the beginning and tweaking the first few paragraphs. I know that I've only got those couple of paragraphs to not only catch the reader, but set the tone for the story and outline the crime in question. That's a lot of pressure. I know that I have something special here. I just want to make sure that everyone else sees it as well.
So, for now.. it's back to the coffee pot for more fuel for me. Wish me luck.
