This day had a lot of free space in it. Then all the spaces filled up with children. We ended up with nine extra kids from three different families. It was mostly peaceful, but that is a lot of extra bodies. The good news is that it did not drive me crazy because the advent of school has me on schedule with work things and stocked up on solitude. I even pulled out my picture book project Strength of Wild Horses. The draft was three quarters done when I realized that I was structuring it wrong. So I’ve re-structured and I’m back to about halfway done with the draft. None of the work flowed, but at least I did some writer work today. Now I need to do some resting. ChiCon work is going to completely consume my Monday.
