Back on Track

2010! That doesn't sound possible. Where has all the time gone? LOL

My kids are growing up faster than I can keep up and I don't like it one bit. But this is life. We all grow up and older and have to make the best out of every second given to us. When I was younger, I couldn't imagine being where I am today. Mom of two teenagers and my baby on his way to middle school? With each new year comes new challenges. The mommy kind and the career kind. Where and how to merge these two so that everyone is kept happy has been a struggle over the years. Even more so now that the kids are older. But miraculously I'm squeezing time to write in there among the daily chores, tournaments and other school activities that seem to pop up out of nowhere.

Time to get back on track. I'm excited about my WIP. I wrote it several years ago, but picked it up again in August to see if it would catch my interest. It did. And now I'm almost done with the edits. I'm loving the way the story is growing and expanding. I think this might just be "the one." Yikes!

I'll be attending a great conference in Louisiana this March and hope to gain some interest from either an agent or an editor. Fingers crossed!

Be sure to stop and enjoy the special moments as well as the everyday moments in your life. Once they're gone. They're gone for good. :)
