|My New Hometown|
My in-laws drove the 800 miles with me and stayed in our apartment with us for a week. They left a few days ago so we are finally on our own. The first days on my own have been slow since I reinjured my ankle. It's finally healing enough so that I can be mobile again. Although being "stuck" in an apartment does have its advantages - I have time to think about writing again.
Would anyone be surprised to hear that I have another idea for a book? It's another non-fiction, a short series of stories. I wrote out chapter ideas this afternoon and it looks like it could be a fun book. But now that it's down on paper, I can free my mind to look at India by Faith again.
Even though apartment living is not ideal - neighbor noises, lack of space, dog on leash; there are some advantages to consider. Cleaning takes very little time. Also, since we got rid of a lot of stuff, there's less stuff to take care of (just don't look in the garage). There's just not that much to do which leads to the point that I finally have time to write again. I'm going to take advantage of this new living situation and finish my book before we look at buying our next home. I imagine that period of our lives will be a bit more busy. The book is getting really close, perhaps in the next month or so I'll be sending it out to get feedback from friends and editors.
I had no idea that I'd start a book in one state and complete it in another. It's a moving book.
