Ah, now how long will the school year be? Do I need to panic? No. My daughter is old enough to fend for herself and so I could write to my heart's content.
I finally plowed through the second scene in the the second chapter. It took me 4 or more hours to work on it, but it reads better. Not great, but better. Then I worked on the 3rd chapter and polished it. It took about an hour and a half to do three scenes. Whew.
Tomorrow I polish up my synopsis and edit it and my query letter. I must get this out the door soon.
I also have to take care to stay healthy--and sane in an insane world.
