I've done no writing or critiquing yet today because I have been busy with housework, child care, grocery shopping and soccer coaching. But the kids are now in bed and it's only 9:30, which means I have a good three hours before bedtime. That's plenty of time to finish my rewrite and perhaps do a story critique, too.
Soccer practice went well. It was the first of the season, and you never know as a coach what you're going to get. We have eight kids, all first-graders except for one kindergartner who is playing up a year. All of them have played before, and a couple of them are little speed demons with a powerful kick. We just have to get them to use their instep instead of their toe, and add some ball-control skills to the power.
Time to get with the writing.
