I should have known better. Rushing always leads to trouble.
I was in a hurry when I unplugged my laptop and managed to shut the lid on the end of the cord.
Five seconds and one cracked screen later, I needed a new laptop. My husband lent me his old one so I could keep working. Consumed with putting my to do list together in my mind, I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing. And dumped my tea all over my desk and keyboard.
Add to that nearly wiping out on some spilled water I was in too much of a rush to wipe up. In an effort to be on time for church, I put my shirt on backwards. That mistake went undetected (at least by me) until halfway through the service.
Have you ever had days like that?
I got the hint and spent the afternoon sitting on the patio reading a book. Taking my time and enjoying the moment.
What I’ve Been Writing
All of which confirms to me I’m right not to rush publishing Flood of Fire, the fourth novel in my series. No, I’m going to let my editor take two months to make sure the book is really ready for release.
In the meantime, I’ve started a new series I know you’re going to love.
