I'm from Kansas City. That means several things. It means I look to the west for weather. It means I've spent my life explaining that KANSAS City is actually in Missouri (apologies to my friends from KCK). And, it means The Wizard of Oz was required viewing (yes, I've read it too).
Today I feel a bit like the Munchkins. Ding Dong June is dead. That too long month is dead. Wake-up Sleepy Head. Rub your eyes, Get out of bed. NOT that I spent much time in bed. June was a marathon of kids activities, volunteer commitments, driving here, there and everywhere and the paying job.
July slows down. July takes its time.
July will add to the word count.
July is a gift - a breather - before I need to get kids ready to go back to school.
July is hot. I hate hot. I don't care. I love July.
Look for the word count to rise!
And maybe, somewhere over the rainbow, the book will be finished. After all, that's where dreams come true.
