This Week in Writing

The winner of this week's giveaway is Laura.  I know where to find you, so I'll get your book to you.

I finished an edit and sent it in, then the author sent it back after making changes.  I need to take care of that soon.  It's short, so it shouldn't take me too long to do.  My family is visiting this weekend, though, so I doubt I'll get to it in the next few days.  It's all good.  I have all week next week.

I'm on chapter 5 of the middle grade book I'm working on.  I've been pretty chill about writing this manuscript.  It's pretty nice.  It's for my boys, so I hope they like it when I'm done.


Earlier this week, the dog had to go to the vet for a staph infection on his chin.  He has to take antibiotics three times a day for the next two weeks.  As you can imagine, we've gotten into a routine of pill taking.  Since he's picky about swallowing the pills, I wrap them in lunch meat.  He swallows that whole.

The kids really enjoy lunch meat too, so every time I give the dog some, they boys need some too.  (Kids and dogs, so easy to train.)  This morning, the boys were sitting at the table eating their turkey, and the 3 year old asks for a drink.

"What do you want?" I ask.

"Ummm, I want...I want..."  He hemmed and hawed for a little while.

His brother whispers to him, "Beer.  You want a beer."

I looked at him.  "You know better than that.  If you can't decide what you want, I'm just going to get you water."

"Yeah, water.  I want water."

As I'm walking to the fridge to get the water, the 5 year old says to the 3 year old, "Why don't you want beer?  Because it makes you fat?  You don't want to be fat?"

"No.  Me don't want to be fat."

Hope you have a great weekend!
