Today is daughter’s last day of camp. She’s old enough that I don’t think it’ll affect my writing schedule to much. She sleeps until noon anyway. Much can be done before noon.

And now I must prove that what I said about this space is true, and get back to work.
I was sure that it had only been a month or two since my last post, but obviously not. What can I say. I’ve been working on a new YA that’s just been not quite right, not quite right, not quite right. But finally, finally I feel that I might be getting it to work.
I’ve been working on it for two years now (though I took time away to write Sami’s Sleepaway Summer and to do a revision of Louie.) It’s hard to leave a book mid-draft. When you come back to it, you are not the same person you were before and for me, I think that often means the story I need to tell is not the same story anymore. And that means a lot of do overs. But this time, I’m almost finished. And I really like the story I’m telling.
I especially like working in my new office.
More on that soon. (Really.)
