For the first time in a few weeks, I didn't have any school visits scheduled. I was kind of bummed about that, because they're a lot of fun. I love to see the kids, and hear about what they're writing. Last week, a lot of the class had uploaded my book on their Kindles (during the free promotion), and they all seemed excited to finish reading it.
About the only productive thing I managed to do was jot down a couple of alternate ideas for Stig to help out Eric, Kate & Hallo. I've got Stig doing something that's a little out of character, so I have to come up with something else. My ideas on the subject were okay, but I wasn't thrilled with them.
It's not a huge thing, but it's become a real sticking point, and it's kind of demotivated me a bit. Now, I know this won't last forever, but it's really aggravating me. I may be overthinking things just a bit. It doesn't help that my free time has been limited lately. Oh well, this too shall pass--eventually.
Things are not all black. Next week, I'll be making another school visit. I'll be giving three 20 minute talks about what inspires me as a writer after hours to students and their parents. Now, I've also got some meetings after work this week, so time will still be at a premium, but I hope that I'll get off the snide this week. Anyway, I'll tell you all about what happens--or doesn't--next week.
