Back to School Already?
For most everyone, our kids are away for the day already, brightening their young minds with treasures of education. What is that I hear? Silence? What is that? It sounds so . . . so quiet! Is something wrong?
No! The kids are at school! Wow, what to do now. Clean or write? I am laughing. Why write of course! Do you know how long it has been to have a house this silent? An endless amount of time stretching before me so that I can indulge myself in my tale-spinning? How thrilling!
School, in our neck of the woods here in northern
The backpacks were hung by the front door with care,
In hopes that early school morning soon would be there;
The writing mamas were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of whipping up plots danced in their heads . . .
Can you feel the anticipation, ripe and ready to pick? I can. I can feel my creative side biting at the bit, so anxious to freely write. (Writing late into the night this past month has seemed nigh impossible with so many familial goings-on cooking around me.)
I know there are those of us with preschoolers toddling—or even rolling around—the house. Maybe squeeze in some writing time during a nap? Their favorite one-hour educational show on the public viewing station? Yes!
What are your thoughts and what writing projects do you have in mind as soon as you send the last child off to school?
