When Can I Write?

Last week I blogged here about life after edits and getting back down to writing the book that's due under my next deadline.  I actually did get a little bit written... and then there were further interruptions.  Not bad ones, but interruptions nonetheless.

I received the manuscript I'd been editing back for its final run-through while I was out of town at the family wedding I mentioned, and of course it's on a tighter deadline than my next manuscript, so my writing has again been interrupted.  Oh, well.  It hopefully won't take me long for this last edit.

Puppy stuff remains time-consuming, though.  It's all good and I enjoy it, but I have to plan when I'm not playing with little Cari or taking her out or working on initial training--or spending quality time with her "big sister" Mystie who sometimes plays with Cari but often has to fight off her playful nips.

Then there's more family stuff and other plans and... okay.  Enough complaining now.  Once more, I'd better get back to those edits so I can once again dig into my writing.

And by the way, I'm heading to The Golden Age of Circus one of these nights to see a show of how circuses used to be--sort of.  It includes a life-size puppet of an elephant!

The puppy is adorable. I can't wait to hear about the elephant puppet.

Thanks, Betty. Cari's into everything but definitely huggable.

There were actually two elephant puppets--a mama and a baby. They interacted with the performers--very cute! And lots of amazing acrobatics at this circus show.
