I was hoping to publish Collide this weekend, but there’s been a delay with getting the cover from my friend/artist. I’m a little sad I didn’t make my release date, but as this is my first time self-publishing…I am trying to be gentle on myself. At least I learned why it’s important to wait until I have everything ready to go before announcing the release date.
I’ll hopefully be seeing her this week, and I will get all that set up before I announce the new release date.
My new project, Damaged Goods, is coming along great. I will be doing a special post about that later this week.
It’s hard to make progress on my writing goals with the added responsibility of…solo-parenting. We are in a groove and I am managing things well, but once the kids are in bed…I am literally void of energy and drive. I am occasionally able to work during the day, but it’s hit or miss how successful I am.
Matt will be in Regina until June 15th. He will be home for two weeks and then back again.
I’m excited for these two weeks. The first week, the boys have an abundance of specialist appointments and the second week, we will be going up to the property. I know we will make the most of our time together, because we will only have that before another month of being apart.
I also know that I won’t accomplish any writing on those weeks off, and if I do…it won’t be a lot. I’ve missed the things I used to take for granted. Cuddling on the couch, watching a movie or a tv series we love. Falling asleep in his arms…waking up to him beside me. I’ll want to spend more time together, doing even the little mundane things.
I do so miss the mundane things.
