After nearly a week of either being sick or tending to sick kiddos, I finally got back to writing this weekend. And, if I stay on course, the first draft of Shieldmaiden will be complete by next weekend. Woot!
I’ll admit, I’ve found it difficult to share writing updates as the world seems like it’s on fire. Here, in Portland, Oregon, protestors are being kidnapped by our own government. We’re in the middle of a global pandemic and people are dying every day. Teachers and schools are struggling to face a school year that, honestly, is akin to walking into a horror novel.
But life continues on, and the spark that keeps each of us going, the hope, the dream, the whisper of something beautiful or better just waiting down the road is what makes all of this worth it. Or so I believe!
