What happened to writing this week?
Monday I sat down at the computer and started to work on my WIP when the phone rang. It was France Gallop, one of my clients. They needed a drawing for a kid’s frame to color. I said ‘Fine, when do you need it?’ and they said ‘Today.’
So I spent the day working on a drawing and getting it approved by the powers that be at France Gallop, and after five p.m. we settled on a version everyone liked, and I made dinner.
Tuesday I have a two hour gym class I love, so I didn’t get home until after noon, and then I had to go shopping because on Monday all the stores are closed in France. I did manage to squeeze in an hour of writing before my daughter called from school. Could I come pick her up? One of her teachers was sick and they didn’t have class. And could I drive her friend Pauline home too?
Wednesday was today, and this morning I came downstairs to find my son had taken over the computer (in France kids don’t go to school on Wednesday.) My daughter had sculpture class, and I gave English lessons to two children, and then a friend dropped by with her dog and kids in tow – shall we go for a walk? And the weather was gorgeous so I said yes.
Tomorrow is Thursday, and the electric company is cutting off our electricity from 8 a.m. until noon. And then the mason is coming to look at a wall which is collapsing in my laundry room. I also have a neighbor’s daughter coming for an English lesson. She has a test she wants me to help her study for. Tomorrow I don’t think I’ll get much done. Plus I have gym, and I really love my gym class.
Friday I have to drive my hubby to the airport. He’s going to St. Tropez for the weekend – yes, being a polo pro is a hard life, lol. I get to stay home…But that means Saturday and Sunday I may have time to write!
