My writing life has been on hold since May 27th 2011.
Why you ask? Because May 27th is the day I retired, which is a good thing and will mean, eventually, free time to write, write write. However, that is the day I began packing in earnest for our move to Oregon. The move, which turned into several trips back and forth the last being on August 8th, and hopefully the last. Grandsons helped with the first move.
Then there is the unpacking and purging what won't fit in the new space. (We're going from a house to two rooms and half the garage). We are roomies with my 85 year old mom, which is a good thing don't get me wrong. It's just we brought way too much Stuff .
So instead of my hero and heroine seeing and talking with me everyday, I'm on a first name basis with the young man at Goodwill who unloads the Stuff from the back of my car. Who now and again comments, "nice Stuff, lady!"
I am excited because I can now walk across the room without bumping into boxes and reach my computer stand with my lap top on it. Yea! Writing full time is getting closer.
My writing books and research books have also gone through the purging process and I am down to one shelf of books in the closet.
I am feeling good right now, purging will do that for a person. H-m-m, I wonder if purging would help with the wordiness in my historical? Would I feel good about that?
