Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

Well, MIL is gone and one would think the house would just snap back to normalcy. It didn't. I had great dreams of a quiet abode with me back at the keyboard, typing away at my WIP. Nope. Hubby took her to the airport yesterday morning, and while I did get the quiet, I couldn't muster the will to type.

He's taking some extra days off work, so we're technically still on vacation. Maybe that's the problem.

If only it were that easy.

I spent some time over the weekend thinking about the WIP - where I'd been and where I still needed to go to work it into a cogent whole. The love just wasn't there. Which sucks because I was totally head-over-heels with this thing when I started. Now? Meh.

I think I just need to sit down and read through everything that's gone before. I hoping that will reignite my excitement for my WIP. If not, I have some things I'd like to do to an older manuscript so I can try submitting it again.

Then again, it could just be that this vacation/visitor interruption has derailed my train of thought and I just need to push my caboose back onto the tracks.

Do vacations derail you, or can you slip right back into your track without a problem once they're over?


  1. Derail? yes! In fact I feel like this entire summer has derailed me! Time to get back on board and chug away once again....

  2. Sometimes they derail me. Release day derailed me. Now I seriously need to get back on board the writing train!
