I also have 8 chapters of the first book of This Broken Earth, due out August 1st to finish by the end of the week. I could probably lock myself away in a room on Thursday and Friday and get it done, but I'm a writer, and I plan to squeeze out a few chapters of the book even if I only finish one chapter per day.
Today's journey was rather uneventful. My mother is the co-pilot and the financier of most of the trip because she wanted to take the grandkids to Sea World now that they are old enough to appreciate it. She rented a 12 passenger van and we are all together, my wife, four kids and my sister's two teenage kids. It took us 9 hours to drive down here and I'm totally exhausted. We swam, I taught my youngest daughter to swim (without a life preserver) and we have had a blast so far.
I plan on getting up early in the morning and churning out a chapter at least. Tomorrow's post will be much more exciting as I will be posting pictures of Sea World and the awesome fun we will have there.
Looking forward to it.
The moral of all this? I want to prove that a writer can write and still enjoy his vacation with his family and not miss a moment with the family.
