Sorry about flaking out last week. But after not missing an update in over three years, and then I and every person in my family being sick in between (and during) two different family visits, I allowed myself to just miss the week.
Here is the comic brainstormed and drafted by my writing students from last month. I thought it was sweet and worth sharing.
In a to-the-last-moment race against time, everyone in our group squeaked across the finish line! *rattles pompoms madly* I definitely showed the way with my will-she-won’t-she last couple of weeks.
Boy, that illness really knocked me back a bit! And a somewhat harrowing doctor’s visit for an unrelated injury didn’t help either. So I didn’t make my stretch goal of 70k, but I got the minimum 50k and feel alright about giving it my all. It was great to get back into writing regularly, especially since the summer was so off. Seriously, when I don’t have deadlines, I’m pathetic.
Speaking of deadlines, I’ve a poem to finish and a pair of short stories to clean up. Thanks for your patience, guys! Until next week (for reals this time!), happy writing!
