Toilet Thoughts

Why is it that all the best writing ideas happen when you're away from pen and paper. On the toilet for example or driving your car? And then by the time you get to where you have pen and paper... the thought is a ghost of the former thought. That's happened to me only about a million times this week...

I went back to work on Wednesday and I feel like I NEVER see my son. I hate it. The job itself hasn't been bad so far. I love the people that I work with and they make me feel really good, telling me how much they missed me and how glad they are that I'm back. But I miss cuddling with my baby and I can't wait for the weekend. They are going to mean SOO much more to me now than they ever did before.

But.... I've been working on my manuscript again. Got the first 4 chapters as close to perfect as I'll get them without professional help and am working on chapter 5, which is a complete disaster! But I'm no longer looking at a huge stack of papers and cringing, so that's progress!

Glad to hear you are getting back in the writing groove. And I had a hard time going back to work after my boys were born so I can only imagine how hard it must be for you.

If you ever want or need somebody to check out and critique part of your novel let me know. I'd be glad to offer my opinion, whatever it's worth.
