Hump week

By Katharine Swan On Monday, July 14, 2014 At 6:10 PM

This week marks the halfway point through summer, if you don't count the week off I have while the family I work for is on vacation.  And boy, am I feeling it!  Just like on "hump day" halfway between Monday and Friday, I'm dragging.  I've been working a lot of hours this week, and although the weeks go quickly in retrospect, I feel like I'm too busy.  I have that feeling like I'm just treading water and waiting for summer to end, so I can get on with the business of swimming.
 It's been a crazy-busy summer so far -- if you haven't guessed by my lack of posts.  Darn it!  I was just getting the hang of blogging more often again, when my summer schedule had to come along and ruin it.  The last time I posted was just after the kids got out of school, at the very beginning of summer.

I've also been freelancing a little again, though, which is good news.  More on that later.

Unfortunately, my summer schedule has taken the biggest toll on Camp NaNoWriMo.  Tomorrow is the halfway point, and I still haven't so much as opened my novel's project in Scrivener!

But during hump week, all possibilities are still in the running.  I am hoping to get started on my novel this week, since I am working fewer hours while the kids are in all-day camps, and next week, when the family I work for is out of town.

Wish me luck!
