With the flu season in full swing I did not get as much accomplished this week as I had hoped. My goal was to spend my week off from work revamping chapter one so that it would be in pristine condition and ready to send out to a new publisher by next month. While I have been working on it, my head seems to be too clogged up for creativity. My new plan is to get lots of rest and allow my story to sit and percolate for a few days before I return to it.
I have the privilege of being able to shape the minds and lives of children who are battling disabilities. It can be very trying at times, but more often than not it is very rewarding. As a mother of a child with a disability, I know the struggles that they go through on a daily basis. This allows me to have a little more compassion for the people that I work with.
