Okay. I admit it. I haven’t gone back to the novel. I haven’t even reread it to get myself up to speed. I don’t feel like it. I’m going away in July so I tell myself it’s pointless to get started again when I’m going to have to stop. Ridiculous. I’m going away for about ten days.
But then there’s this other thing. I’m getting a puppy the third week in July. How can I write while I’m trying to train a pup? Am I wrong? Can I do both? And how long will I be in that state?
I’ve always hated writing in the summer. In the past I’ve done a lot of reading during summer months. More than I normally do. That’s what I want to do again. Will I be able to read while training a puppy?
The last time I put aside a non-contract book I never went back to it. I have a sneaking suspicion this might happen again. I suppose if it does it does.
In my mind I loathe the book I started. Maybe loathe is too strong a word. Despise comes to mind.
I think I might be making a lot of excuses when I really don’t need to because I can do what I want at this point in my life and shuttered career.
Not writing today or tomorrow.
