Taking a break and writing again
Its that time again. School starts on August 24th and I couldn't be happier. I'll be working again and Brian starts the 5th grade. I know that some people tread the start of school but not me. I've had a very different summer. I babysat a friend of mine's kid and its been difficult. He is the same age as Brian and they were even in the same classes and Cub Scouts together. I thought it would be fun for Brian to have a friend at the house.
Boy was I EVER wrong. All this kid wanted to do was to either be on his laptop or IPad. He's not an outdoor kid, Brian would LIVE outside if I let him and don't even get me started on going swimming. The kid never wanted to go. Needless to say, Brian and I were caged in our own house during the time he was here. I didn't have to babysit him for the whole month of July since he was at his dad's but June was difficult. Thank goodness I only have the kid for 4 more days. I thought Brian was going to hit him this week because the kid called our dog stupid. Yes, stupid. *bangs head* Brian put an end to it...peacefully.
So enough of the whine...I'm taking a break from reviewing on Harlie's Books. I'll still post and stuff but my reviewing days are over for the most part. Don't worry if I review you now...I'm just not going to review new authors. I won't have the time anymore. But on a more positive note: I'M WRITING AGAIN! Yes, I'm very excited about this. My rights to my one and only book are up in a month or two and its in the hands of an editor to see where and how I can expand it from a short story to a novella...at least.
I'm going to go the traditional route again on the book. I don't have the money for indie publishing at this time. I wish I did but I don't. Of course now, I need to start the process on getting my rights back. Is there a letter that you send? Just an email stating you want your rights back? This step trips me up a bit so any advice would be awesome.
Busy and somewhat weird summer. As a family we had a blast on our two small vacations but I can't wait for the routine of school again. Plus, since I live in Texas...cooler will eventually get here...around Halloween. Can't wait. :)
