Wordless Wednesday: Back to School

And we’re back. The Nine-Year-Old went back to school this week. Fourth grade already. Amazing. Astounding. 

If I were a normal parent, I’d post a picture of The Nine-Year-Old in her back-to-school outfit with her freshly washed and brushed back-to-school hair.  But both The Nine-Year-Old and I would rather share this:

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.

      I know. I pretty much try to keep my working hours to while my daughter’s in school, which makes blogging in the summer a challenge. Glad to be back in the working mode now, though, even if it’s taking me a week or two to get back into the daily grind. Lots to catch up on, and it can feel overwhelming. *But* the bathroom renovation is done, I have spiffy new built-in filing cabinets (still empty, of course) and some fresh new bookshelves (half-full, because let’s be real about what my priorities are) in my office, and I have a planner full of to-dos just waiting for me to stop having fun on the internet and start accomplishing real stuff.

      See you around the pond (or around the prickly pear, I suppose, given where you are).
