I realize the title of this is a bit misleading. I don’t currently live a life where idle time exists. There are always so many things to be done there simply isn’t enough time in the day to do them. But what I do have are activities which do not require a lot of brain power.
My garden has derailed my life. The weather heated up and the plants have gone from strolling along in their growth to a flat-out sprint to see which one of them can develop and ripen the most vegetables or fruit. Even my watermelon plant, which has been so sad and lethargic, has suddenly taken off.
There’s a terrible little voice inside my head. It sows seeds of doubt, questioning my every decision and threatening my ability to make decisions. When I manage to block out its shout, it whispers instead, sneaking into the crevices of my mind. The closer I get to the potential release date of Liquid Fire the more persistent it becomes.
The last two weeks have been amazing and crazy for me. My kids and I took a little trip to visit family and catch up with people we haven’t seen in a long time. There was so much happening I only sporadically had access to email and social media. Consequently, I was a day late in getting the very exciting news that my first ever interview as an author had gone live on Esther Rabbit’s website.
