Announcing the completion of two WIPs

Well folks, Baby Boy Paxton finally put in his appearance on July 2nd at 8:05 p.m.  He was five days late, but because he's so cute and so unbelievably sweet and I find myself getting lost in the depths of his ancient new eyes at least a dozen times a day, I'll forgive him.  I guess he's not really a complete WIP, but you could say the outline has been roughed in and it's a truly wondrous thing.

As for my writing, I sort of feel like I'm cheating saying that I finished my WIP before Baby Boy put in his appearance because I haven't, not really.  However, I finished all but the final chapter. I feel like I need to wait until I complete my first round of edits before I write that final chapter.  I'm not sure why, but I'm trusting my instincts/muse/whatever you want to call it on this one.  So, yeah, I guess for all intents and purposes the first draft of my WIP is complete.

As for my revisions on SEEDS, well, I have a two year old, a newborn, a husband and a house and I completed my WIP less than two weeks ago.  Needless to say, since revising the first chapter in early June I haven't touched SEEDS and I'm not sure when I'm going to get to it.  It's a little frustrating because I do want to move forward in my writing journey. However, I'm trying to remind myself to enjoy the time that I have with my baby and my daughter right now.  I'm learning they grow up way too fast and those moments aren't something you can't recapture and those moments are what make a worthwhile life.

I'm back in the blogosphere, but my posts are going to be sporadic at best.  I've been dropping by everyone's blogs the last few days, but I haven't had a chance to leave comments, just a quick skim to see how everyone is doing.  Glad to see that for the most part all is well with all of you.

I'll try to get back to commenting and posting regularly as soon as I can.
