Wordless Wednesday: The Seven-Year-Old drops a hint

Or, what I found on my desk when I sat down to write this morning.

(Art: The Seven-Year-Old Howell)

Guess she’s tired of waiting.

I don’t normally do posts like this, but I haven’t been around for a while. Here’s what I’ve been doing instead:

  • Managing painters, plumbers, electricians, and flooring guys
  • Hiring movers
  • Packing up our current place
  • Cleaning/prepping our new place (we move again in June)
  • Paying taxes (in three states!)
  • Camp NaNoWriMo (a mini-National Novel Writing Month event held in April–and again in July, if you’re interested)
  • Trying to figure out how donations work in Chicago
  • Trying to figure out how emotions translate into body language and body language into words on a page
  • Binge reading Elizabeth George mysteries
  • Debating with Michael on the ideal functionality of a master bathroom

Here’s what I’ve not been doing:

  • Blogging

Sadly (?), all my spare words have been going to my novel lately. Hopefully I’ll return to my regularly scheduled blogging output soon. In the meantime, enjoy the spring!

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
