Summer flew by way to fast. My summer ended August 12, when my kids started back to school. I don’t think there was a soul in my house that didn’t dread the start of the school year. I dreaded it because I didn’t want to deal with the concept that my oldest took her place as a freshman in high school or that my youngest is in his last year at the elementary school. Where did my little girl and baby boy go? They are growing up, and I am getting older.
We all dreaded the reappearance of alarm clocks and their persistent ringing at the butt crack of dawn. 5:30 in the morning should be celebrated deep within warm covers in dreamland, NOT by getting dressed, packing lunches, and forcing sleepy kids onto buses. Still here we are with three weeks of school already under our belts as of tomorrow and ass deep in homework and school activities. Such is life.
With the kids back to school, I have my days free to write and do what I want to do. Time to crank those tunes and perfect my dance moves. Watch me whip, watch me neigh-neigh! Time to write, which is where this whole NaBloPoMo madness comes in. I plead insanity, and I may live to regret this spur of the moment decision. Or I might remember that I like to write. HA! I do, but I admit, that I am not as gung-ho for it as some of my peers. I don’t aspire to write a book, just to write better. Good luck with that one!
With that said, you my dear readers will see me posting more this month. I will be writing my heart out taking on the NaBloPoMo challenges, but still trying my hand at my usual haunts like the Yeah Write Micro Story grid and Haiku Horizons. Maybe even some other writing challenges that spark my fancy. So sit back, relax, and enjoy. It’s going to be a wild ride!
