I am so excited that summer is here! I am super busy, but I haven't lost sight of the fact that it is gloriously warm outside. Hot, even. Sometimes, too hot. But I do love summer! I love July 4th and cooking out. I love how it doesn't get dark until nine o'clock. I love eating outside and being with family. Summer is pretty awesome.
Although, as a children's book author, summer is kind of a down time. You can't visit schools, because they aren't in session. You can't get your fan clubs together, because so many kids are on vacation or going to camps. But it surely is a great time to write! Which is why it is so crazy that I'm having a hard time finding time to write. Agh!
My schedule is jam packed with a full-time job, teaching dance, tutoring, planning for theater camp which starts next week, blogging, social media-ing, performing with my theater kids at outdoor events, and I was just cast as the lead in Mame at Phoenix Festival Theater!! Whew! I'm tired just thinking about the craziness this summer holds for me. But, you know what? I'm going to embrace it! I'm going to find the time to write. I'm going to do it! This fourth book in The Wonky Witch Series needs to be written by September 1st, and it will happen! It will! Right? RIGHT??
