As I write this teaser for my Writing Wednesdays post, the clock on the wall is ticking, the furnace is humming, and my fingers are clicking on the keyboard. But that’s about it. Everything else is still. It’s a time of great anticipation, the hush before the roar. It’s the eve of the first day of the school year 2010-2011.
This is the year my youngest babe goes to kindergarten and my oldest enters high school. It’s a big year for us here in the Salonen abode. There is much excitement in the air, even now as my little birdies slumber, dreaming of the school year ahead.
In my Writing Wednesdays rant on Peace Garden Writer today, I talk about how important it is for me, now more than ever, to guard my writing time. I’ll bet most of you can relate on some level, regardless of what kind of time you’re trying to protect and for what purpose. We all have to make decisions as to how we’ll use the time we’ve been given. I hope my post will inspire you to choose your commitments wisely.
Happy School Year 2010-2011! And if you’re not quite there yet, enjoy the waning days of summer!
