As quickly as the workweek passes, dear reader, vacation time seems to pass twice as quick. It seems like the last week in Crete flew by. I didn’t do very much, my sister was sick with the flu. So I got the chance to hang out with my niece and my new nephew. Childcare is always an adventure for those of us who do not have them, whether the baby is considered fussy or not. I am happy to report that my nephew is a copacetic little man who doesn’t really fuss about much of anything. I stayed at the hotel that Jasper and I stayed in over the summer. It’s a lot cozier in the winter. They have a fireplace that’s real and they keep it lit. My niece spent spend the night with me once and both of us had nightmares, I’m not sure what hers were about but mine were about not returning her to her parents. Thankfully it was all a dream and We both got back to her parents’ house the next morning with no trouble.
I did get to do some further editing, particularly on Thursday night as I was with my writers’ group in spirit. I’ve done a decent amount of editing from the beginning of the book. I’ve decided that’s going to be my new strategy for writing is to go back and remember what I wrote before so that I can continue the story because frankly, dear reader, I am stumped. I’m sure that it’s a problem for most writers. I think it might be the best way to go from now on as I am not sure how to end the novel.
Tomorrow after a day of travel I will come back to the Netherlands and be ready to start with my new class. I am both trepidations and excited about the endeavor. There are currently five students with the possibility of three more. I am extremely thankful to have a steady income and grateful that the class ends in March and I can go to the US in April.
I also have a new private client who wants a handful of lessons dealing with business English and I am going to do my best to try and make her more permanent. I am also going to contact Felix and see if he wants to get a coffee, but will not suggest lessons as there is only so much I can chase after clients.
That’s all she wrote for this Inkreadable installment. But stay tuned. As always, there’s more to come.
