I’m Buried!

Truly. My publisher wants me to revise the entirety of my technology curriculum ASAP. That’s six textbooks and two add-ons. I’ve been at it a month, but I’m not close to done, so forgive me for writing less for a few weeks. When you hear a big HUZZAH from the West Coast, you’ll know I’ve finished.


Yeah, that's me being busy

    • I took a day off work to work on the curriculum. Finished off fifth grade. Now I’m onto the Middle School books. It’ll take about a week for each, which butts me up against summer. I need the summer for my novel so that works. You’re right, though, it will be worth it. I already like the changes tremendously over the original.


  1. Haha–school being out for you means more activity with your little ones. For me, it means more free time. I have to have this editing job done by then so I can do my real writing!


  2. Good luck with all the revisions! My busy season hit this month, with school terms almost ending and the sun staying out later, which means more outside time, less inside time (and less writing time!).
