The Writing Life

Only a month to go until the online writers conference. It’ll be bigger and better than last year. The line up of “speakers” looks promising. I can’t wait! I won’t get to spend the entire time at the conference because I’m planning to use my vacation time to fly out to Rhode Island to visit

Well my first attempt at scheduling writing has failed. I got about 20 minutes this morning, but haven’t done anything since. Guess it would help if I actually ate lunch rather than sitting at my computer snacking on trail mix and cookies. My last two hour period is quickly slipping away. Better luck next time.
