For the first time in six years, I am getting back into running. Why now? Because the kids are in school -- all three of them at the same time for a few precious hours each week. That means I have quiet, uninterrupted time to work on two things: Getting my body back into shape, and doing more writing.
So, Week 1:
-- I went for runs on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday for a total of about five miles. Not a huge tally, but I'm easing into things.
-- I didn't write as much as I wanted to. I'm about 5,500 words into the current WIP, which has a submission deadline of Sept. 15. Gotta get cracking and finish up this story in the next two days, so I have time for a quick round of critique and revise.
