Only a few short days are between me and my deadline for the cookbook. When we were discussing finish date for the contract, I partly wanted to ask for more time, but then realized keeping it short and quick would be a nicer quality of life. Writing a book (at least with this type of project and time frame) sort of takes over your life, so I liked it being highly concentrated for a few months instead of looming over me for a long time.

I actually have a document saved on my desktop every time I think of something I want to do, but cannot right now because of the work. It is my “things I will do when my manuscript is turned in” list. On it are items such as get up to date on family photo albums, keep working on the house, etc.

You will notice a few days off from posting while I am banging out the last pieces of the book. Among the things waiting for us when I return is the annual blog birthday about life as a blogger (slash author!?).

    Hi Rachel,
    I just (somehow) stumbled upon your blog and I have to say, I am so excited to have found you! I love household projects, refinishing furniture, cooking, and theology (well, mostly Jesus, but theology too!) Anyway, just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I love everything I’ve seen so far. Have a great day! :)

      Hi Breta! Nice to “meet” you. Thanks for saying hi!

  • That’s a smart decision – finish the book faster and keep going on with all the other stuff you wanna do :) Cross-fingers :)

      Thanks Ellie!
