1) We have a new dog at our house, and some new rules in place for the fourteen-year-old (and for me).
2) I emailed my novel manuscript to my agent. The last time I did this, I didn’t hear back for a month, then I was asked (very nicely) if I couldn’t add more tension…two years ago. I think there’s tension now, in fact, I feel pretty damn tense about the whole enterprise.
3) I am at work on a new novel…or a novella…or a really long short story. We’ll see what happens.
4) On Friday I turned in my letter of resignation to Everett Community College. I am still waffling on how much I will teach part-time. My real, true goal–to be 100% present for my daughters and my mom, wherever we are on our journey (and there’s the husband)–but also, always, TO KEEP WRITING EVERY DAY.
“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible.” –Kierkegaard
