My best friend has a magnet on her fridge that has that old Yiddish proverb: “We plan, God laughs.”
Ain’t it the truth?
As most of you know, on May 1 of this year, I began the “serious” writing of my second novel, In the Red (or Starry-Eyed, depending on the day), penning 1,000 words a day, along with some fine writing folks out there. Together, we are the #1kaday crew. However, Novel #1 beckoned, and I had to take a short break. Of course, as things go, my respite from my #1kaday duties has turned into a much longer period of time — a few weeks, instead of one.
This week, though, I should be finished with the minor tinkering of Baby Grand, and then it’s back to Novel #2, which originally I’d hoped to be done with by end of June. Not sure that will happen. But that’s okay. Still on target for an end-of-year completion, edits and all.
Or at least that’s the plan.
Sometimes it isn’t only God who laughs.
