It’s Friday, and I don’t think I’ve been more ready for the weekend all year! My husband took off for a week for some much-appreciated (and needed!) encouragement at a pastor’s conference. I’m grateful to say the boys and I survived the ordeal but were thrilled to have Dad back home.
Writing’s been a little strange this week. The boys are on spring break, which means we’re cutting back on homeschool stuff and the kids aren’t involved in electives at the public school. I’m also taking some time off my current project to take care of some edits and behind-the-scenes sorts of things.
The good news is I have the next Kennedy book off for its first round of edits!
I’m really excited about this one and even though I don’t want to give any spoilers, I thought I’d share a snippet for todays’ Christian Fiction Friday post.
Woong kicked the heel of his sneaker against the metal bar by his feet. “My dad’s gonna take me to a Redsox game next Monday. That’s a week from today, right?”
“Right. You know how many days that is?”
She could smell the cheddar cheese flavoring on his breath when he opened up his stuffed mouth. “Eight.”
“Close. It’s seven.”
“No,” he insisted. “It’s eight.”
“Seven,” she repeated. She rattled off the days of the week. “See? That’s seven.”
He shook his head. “No, ’cause today’s Monday, and the game is Monday.” He held up his hands to count on his fingers. “It goes Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. That’s eight.”
Unfortunately, it’s going to be a little more than seven (or eight) days before the next Kennedy novel is ready for publication, but a little birdie told me there just might be another slot or two available to claim it free right here.
