This week— feels like days not just 7! Work is currently a flux of action, assessments, reviews, changes and sweat and tears. I started my writing classes, Wednesday night classes on Writing for Children. Back of the head ideas. It takes an hour to drive to the city after work and I was ready to collapse with lack of food and tiredness after work last week.
It was like a day off working Thursday! I was in in the morning which meant I could get busy writing Thursday afternoon. I was so tired Thursday and Friday I was asleep by 8pm! We organised more electrical quotes at the new house and popped in for post a few times — very excited!
I managed a couple of submissions, poetry and a fantasy short story. On Saturday I went to my 2nd script writing workshop — a great group.
Sunday we were at the allotment in the sun, followed by an afternoon and evening of work. And today I have worked, attended meetings, made a ton of phone calls, worked late, signed house paperwork, found out about 1st ever deposit into my 1st ever joint account do your read the excitement?
I have also spent the past 3hrs completing my 4th college assignment! Exhausted — bed time now! Incase you are not a regular reader of my blog — I signed onto my 1st Online Writing course at the end of April and I have found it and the submission deadlines hardcore!
By the weekend I had completed all the research and burnt the midnight—all-day-oil on Sunday to get assignment 3 completed before work starting up again.
It took best part of 9 hrs but I got it done! I also had several meetings in Banks as Mr G and I were exchanging contracts on our new house! I attended the first of 3 scriptwriting workshops over the weekend. It was immensely useful. This week I have discovered new genres and attempted writing around them.
I am currently working on a short story and some poems for submission. The week before- Tuesday I had paperwork lots of it to complete this weekend, we had a 3 day weekend so I would have expected it to be complete as usual for Sunday evening. I have struggled with it this week and it has taken twice as long as normal, part of the time 2.
I started early before 8 a. I made 3 mistakes which resulted in a missed deadline! My error was forgetting the multitude of time differences across the states of America!
My 2nd mistake was, after being out all day I got to see Mr G and watched some recorded oh the irony TV programmes. By the time I finished my writing it was a few minutes to the 9pm deadline 10pm for usI log in and have 60 secs to post, should have been find, they have taken over students and I think hundreds were all trying to do the same thing.
All over the forum posts grew about the missed deadline, some people had neglected to do 4 hrs research I did this Friday night and was quite an expert in expectations, objectives and course outlines. I also rallied people to complain hard I was a member of Youth C. D and won political debates at school against older kids, a born soapbox activist.
It is a real lesson on speaking up and speaking out. And that many voices are strong. It is such an action packed week, I am going to offer you three slices!
Plots dug over, everything planted ready. Exciting time now Summer finally arrivedwater and wait! The whole planet missed Spring I think stuck in a perpectual winter.

There have been many people who have asked me why in the world I stopped writing my column in the Linn County Leader; the simple reason is that I have decided to devote all of my energies into both the ministry that God has called Jeannie and I into, plus I am picking up where I left off many years ago with my creative writing projects that have sadly been neglected.
