Yes! The text is fully completed – all of the elements are in place, and now it’s time to arrange them. But for right now, it’s time to concentrate on making it back to my East Coast home.
I’m missing Florida a bit now, healing up and ready to head home. I’ve grown to really love my little town on the Gulf of Mexico and sure can’t wait to get back home!
All final edits are in the works! On a side note, I have to admit, I don’t remember the LA summers being so hot…maybe it’s just me? Well at least there’s air conditioning.
Had the back surgery! I am totally fine, but reclining in bed for a couple days. It is the perfect time to now work diligently with Rosemary on the editing. Thank goodness I have her help in getting everything edited to perfection.
I have enlisted the help of Rosemary Delderfield – my editor. She is based out of LA. Life goes on and I have a lot of life in me. Back to work and I am still in LA, staying with the kids. Planning to get that laser back surgery I put off. Here I go, always adding something exciting to my life.
My husband and I flew back to Medford to continue the trip, and then we will head back to Seattle in 2 weeks for the service. I am just not too into this trip anymore, so we are driving back to LA. I want to be around my kids and get back to work.
After the wedding, we left the kids and made it through a large part of Northern California and then into Southern Oregon. Our amazing and lovely trip ended on a very sad note for me. We drove to Medford, parked the car and took a plane 4 days ago to Seattle. Yesterday my father passed away with me laying close next to him on his bed and my step mom holding his hand on his other side. Cancer is a terrible, terrible and degrading illness! I have nothing else to share today. My creative juices are a bit blunted right now.
Interesting, in looking at this from a child’s perspective, I think the book is going to be a HUGE hit! The ramifications of it are going to be awesome. It ties into so many other things I am doing and all will help out each other.
Quick update, we are soon off to LA and then up to Big Sur for a wedding. We have secured a home in Carmel by the Sea with our 2 boys, their girlfriends and our daughter Miranda. I will work the whole time. I am planning to see my dad after the trip.
The people that I’ve met thus far and the friendships that I’ve developed as a result of this book have just been so enriching and wonderful! Time for a break… 🙂 and a trip to LA is in the near future. I have got to work on a few points on the text now for the book. I did this a bit backwards, but what the heck. Once I met Aija, I was on a roll.
