Happy Tuesday to you…

I am in the middle of ChartedCourse work, but I wanted to repent of last night’s mistakes. I actually fell asleep in my easy chair pretty much right as the kids were going to bed, so I didn’t do any more writing last night.

However, I hit the 6000 goal yesterday during that first session, so no worries!

I will be working on The Mars Betrayal today as well, from about 3:30 to about 5:30. I might not write later, as I am hoping to take a lengthy walk so I can sleep better tonight. I’ve been having trouble sleeping the last few nights.

It may be because of snoring or squirming baby, but it may also be because I need to be good and tired. I am trying to regularize my sleeping habits finally, since I am supposed to be a grown up now.

Discipline. As a young, naive (evian backwards) writer, I had not imagined that to be successful as a writer I would need to have discipline.

This morning I took my older boys up the Y hike. If you don’t know what that is, too bad.

Only joking.

BYU has this massive white Y painted on one of the mountains surrounding Utah Valley. There is a well-kept, rather steep trail that leads to the Y, and the trailhead is about a 5 minute drive from the house. I had done the hike for the first time on Saturday, and had actually hiked from the house, so it was kind of long.

This morning I drove Thomas, Hintze and myself to the parking lot at the trailhead, then we headed up. It’s good exercise and the boys really enjoyed it.

I have to get back to it now, so I’m off.
