I've been working on revisions for my agent this week. The things she wanted fixed were pretty minor, but I get a little obsessed when I start a new revision--I just need to get it done.
So I've been working hard. With my focus on the revision some of the other things in my life have been neglected. These are the things that haven't been given enough attention lately.
Our poor, poor vegetable garden.
It's needed attention for weeks, and for weeks my attention has been elsewhere.
The laundry (this is only one basket... there are 4 that need folding)
Cleaning (or even convincing the kids to clean)
The kids and the dog. I am ashamed to admit it, but there has been a lot of movie watching at our house this week. Luckily my three kids have each other and they play great together... when they aren't fighting. (Just so you know, I haven't totally neglected them. They are still fed and clothed and my baby has spent most of the week sitting on my lap as I type at the computer).
The good news is I'm almost done with revisions, and next week I plan to spend a lot of time at the park. (We'll see about the cleaning and the laundry.)
Do you ever let things slide in favor of writing?
