Catching Up After Traveling

After almost two weeks in Iceland and Paris–you can click on those links to see more photos if you’re interested, I’m trying to get caught up on work.

I had an evening literacy event and a school visit the next day, so I spent a couple of days in Wisconsin this week. The schools were lovely, but–note to self–travel within the week after two weeks overseas is NOT recommended!

Yesterday, I had my first day back to “regular” work at my desk, and I spent about half of it revising a nonfiction passage. Took lots longer than I felt like it should, so that was disappointing. I’m also working on my February end-of-month records, and today, I need to send proposals for six short stories for 3rd-5th grade, and a bunch of proposals for fiction, nonfiction, and poem passages for another project.

Finally, my taxes are finished! Hooray! That means I’ll be posting my How Much Money Does a Writer Make post soon–probably next week. If you know writers who might be interested in what I share here on this blog, I’d be grateful if you share this or other posts.

OK, diving in to my Inbox and my idea database now. Have a great weekend!
