Too busy to wonder what 2015 will bring
Right now the house is a mess. Half of it’s packed in boxes. The stuff that isn’t packed is becoming more and more inaccessible. Empty boxes lie around to intrigue our curious cats. The good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, a moving van will show up in several days and carry all our stuff from NE Georgia to NW Georgia.
Thanks goodness my brother and his wife are driving up here from Florida to help with the move.
My wife and I are taking things one day at a time…wondering whether we’ll get better Internet access on the 85-acre farm than we’ve had there so far…debating a list of need-t0-fix items with the builder…getting a mail box set up…getting phone service…moving our DISH account from here to there.
A new place. Lots of hassle, but lots of possibilities. Most of the farm is leased to the neighbor across the road whose got the pastures filled with cattle. That’s a familiar sight, for my wife’s late father had cattle there until he retired several years ago. Other than moving, it’s hard to say what will get written this year or whether various publishers will cooperate with the books waiting to be finished (ball’s in their courts).
Thanks to those of you who took advantage of the sale price for the e-book of Jock Stewart and the Missing Sea of Fire and the free status of two of my other books for 5-day periods on Kindle. As a writer, I have more to say and look forward to saying it in 2015.
What about you? Do you ever get so busy with the needs of the next week or so that you can’t possibly think any farther down the road? You hope the road leads somewhere good, but just what that may be is in a state of limbo.
I do my best work when I can be spontaneous, not worry about outlines and schedules, and stay away from others who have more expectations for my time and energy than I can shake a stick at. 2014 was way too busy. I’m looking forward to watching the grass grow in 2015.
