Goodbye, July

The summer is slipping away. Soon it will be time for registration and open houses and meeting new teachers, getting new school clothes and new school supplies (hooray for new supplies!). I'm feeling a bit melancholy watching the summer glide past. I've been having a lot of fun, though, and I know that the fall will hold new wonderful memories and great experiences.

I haven't been writing as much this month, but that's okay. I think I can still finish the Christmas story I've been working on by the end of the month. (A short story in a month? I didn't used to think that was possible.) I guess what I'm trying to say is that if I'm not around the blogosphere as much as I'd like, it's because I want to soak every bit of summer and not let a moment go to waste.

I've not written as much as I'd hoped in July either.

Savor the summer while you can. I don't blame you:)

I'm not even sure if we got a summer this year in Iowa! All we've had is hail and rain...UGH!

Enjoy what is left of your summer.

Don't you just love school supplies?

You go girl! Summer has a way of disappearing without notice! Go get some serious vitamin D!

I can't believe it's already near the end of July. It goes by too quickly. I'm going to mention this in my next post.

Enjoy the rest! Summer was never great for me for writing...

I hope I get to read your Christmas story!

I thought I could get through writing a book this summer and send it out. Ha! I was just too busy. Maybe in the fall.

Have a great summer Angie! I can't wait to see what happens with your Christmas story. =)

You enjoy it. Summer passed us by in the rain.

The end of the summer came SO fast this year!

I'm just trying to savor the last few weeks of it!

Maybe I should go to the pool for an hour, just to say I did. Lesigh.

I'm sad to see summer ending too. Enjoy the rest while you can!

WritingNut said...

Aww, I know exactly how you feel! I'm sad to see it ending as well :(

Jackee said...

Understandable! Having school age kids especially makes summertime magical and it must be enjoyed to its fullest.

Have fun, Angie! Can't wait to hear more about your Christmas story!

AstonWest said...

July didn't start off all that well on new material, but it certainly picked up near the end (for me at least)...

Good luck with your Christmas story!

Angie said...

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! I hope you are enjoying your end-of-summer too!

Brandon said...

I'm with you Angie...I write at a steady turtle pace :)

I'm hoping to change that more and more, but...we'll see.

Enjoy the summer!
