There was not a lot of writing happening the last few days – I was too busy playing grandma. My son and his wife came back to the state to attend a friend’s wedding, which gave my husband and me a chance to see our baby granddaughter again. We took full advantage of the opportunity!
I know I’m not saying anything most of you don’t already know – but my goodness, babies grow quickly! It was amazing to see how much she had grown, both in size and in abilities, since we saw her at Thanksgiving. She’s a whole four months old now, and figuring out how to use her fingers is a big part of her days. Watching her try was good for hours of entertainment. (She already knows how to smile such that every adult in the room melts at her feet, so check that one off her to-do list.)
I suppose if I were ambitious today, I could come up with some sort of analogy involving babies and writing. Maybe something about developing our skills as writers just as babies must develop their motor skills. But honestly, I’m not even going to try. I’m enjoying my baby euphoria too much.
I hope you’ll forgive me if I make this a short blog, so I can go back to thinking about my granddaughter and when I’ll see her again. Until next week, happy writing!
I write historical romances, and I invite you to share the journey to published author with me.
