5 Days Left of Summer

Today, tomorrow, Friday, the weekend. Well, I do have Monday off but Tuesday I'm back at school getting my room ready. I have 3 days to do that, plus a day of meetings. 6th graders show up the following Monday, and everyone jumps back in Tuesday the 12th.

Think I'm looking at my calendar, like, every hour? Stress is mounting. Time is slipping. Writing is going...okay.

Actually, yesterday, writing went pretty well. I needed to do something completely different than the projects I've been working on over the summer...so I wrote a 4,000 word short story. Took me all day and if it weren't for taking an hour break in the late afternoon to exercise, I would have sat in my chair way too long! 

And that's after tinkering with my website in the morning. I still don't like the dark green, but the brown was too dark. Hmm, may tinker some more today.

At any rate, here's my update to my 21 Day Writing Sprint to the End of Summer. Thanks for reading!
