And the Page Count Is…

I made it. My target for my writing spree up at the lake was to hit page 225 once the new chapters were typed up, and I exceeded that by hitting page 235. Yes.

Unfortunately the clock is now ticking on another week and I’m already starting to fall behind, what with the MERMAIDS galleys and the Q&A my in-house publicist wants done and the new website I’m having designed and the trip to Florida to visit Daughter #1 that I have planned for the end of the week (assuming she manages to get back from the Far East in time). And then there are these really neat out-of-print books, the Village London series, that I recently discovered and ordered from used booksellers around the world and they’ve now started arriving and they are oh-so-tempting, since they’re full of all sorts of wonderful little historical tidbits. Except Daughter #2 will be home from Europe before I know it and I’ll be sucked into the whirlwind of getting her ready to go off to college, and I need to have the first draft of this book finished by 1 September. Only, I also really need to get the upstairs hall painted because…

Breathe, Candy. Breathe.

I've been so enjoying my time this summer, having time to write and get some rest, and other than my mom's illness it hasn't been too stressful. I'm dreading going back to work already, though. Hope things lighten up for you soon.
