Writing, Family and More
Tired, exhausted, maybe a little irritable. This is why I limited myself to stopping at 9:30 tonight. I didn’t even sit down to write until almost 9, so that gave me just over a half hour. Luckily, despite my tiredness, I managed to stay focused on the goal and get a decent word count for the day to help me keep pace. Or rather, not get too much farther behind pace.
The story itself is progressing well. I am not sure how much of the fantastical I want to include in the story; it could be a reasonable realistic fiction if I kept working the real aspects to it. Still, I have ideas of watching a griffon fly about in the story, so that might happen eventually and really throw it into another world. We’ll see how it goes.
Guenevere got a chance to write another 80 words by hand today and was excited to let me know. She took her work to school with her this morning, so I wonder if she was writing during class. Very much like her father, she is. 5th grade is when I had a teacher catch me writing in school and suggested I should be an author. She makes me smile.
Gabriel, 11, also started writing today. He wanted to start yesterday, but homework prevented him from ever getting there. Homework almost stopped him tonight, but he worked so diligently on it that I couldn’t reasonably deny him. I gave him ten minutes and he pushed out a few sentences to start things off. I am not surprised he decided on a Minecraft guide, but it is something that gets him interested and I am very happy to encourage him to express that interest in writing.
Grayson unfortunately didn’t get a chance to write today and I never checked in with Abigail on hers.
Such a wonderful house of writing kids. I love November.
It's a beautiful country, but you're going to miss most of it if you spend your free time in the truck stop lounge. Travel tips and pics for truckers and others.
