Sitting on top of the Stairs

At the moment I'm sitting on the top stair in my Mum's house. My mum's house is devoid of technology but the neighbors have wifi. They kindly let me have the passkey so I can check my e-mails etc. but the only place I can get a strong enough signal is on the top of mum's stairs. Not that I'm complaining it is very peaceful up here and after living in the country for several years I have noticed that I am becoming less and less tolerant of being around lots of people, and England is filled to brimming with lots of people. So after a day out with mum it's nice to come up here and de-stress for a while.

I am enjoying my visit. I'm getting more writing done and doing some editing.

An End in Sight

There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I don't think it's a freight train. Only 10 days left of "headless chicken" mode, then life will return to normal. Well as normal as my life can get. I have managed to write a few more chapters of my next novel in amongst all the W-2's and 1099's, so I didn't completely lose my sanity to the IRS.

I should be able to start blogging again on a regular basis. I am going home to England for a couple of weeks soon and I am hoping that being immersed in the surroundings where I base my story will give me oodles of inspiration and maybe even help me finish off the first draft of my novel. If that doesn't do it, being stuck in JFK airport for 6 hours waiting for my connecting flight just might. Thanks Delta for changing the itinerary on me!

I hope everyone got their fill of Easter eggs and chocolate today. I certainly did :-)

Happy Easter everyone.
