March comes in like a lion but goes out like a lamb.That’s the expression, and it’s supposed to refer to weather.
I live in LA, and this year March has come in like a lamb, although some rain is expected around now.No huge El Nino effect as previously predicted, though.And I anticipate it’ll also go out like a lamb.
But if I look at non-weather things, the expression may apply.My March started with my having a lot to do on the writing front, from finalizing a couple of copyedits for books to be published this year, to several proposals–some required and others self-imposed, to working on a manuscript for which I’m under deadline.
On top of that were a couple of trips–the one to New York that I mentioned last time, plus one to Phoenix for Left Coast Crime, both at the end of February but affecting my March.I’ve also had an unexpected and busy family visit–fun, but time-consuming.And a few other things that have required time.
Plus, I’m hoping to attend this month’s OCC meeting, although I couldn’t last month.
I love being a work-from-home writer, especially when I am at home.And most of the things that have taken up my time have been good.But I’m finally foreseeing and hoping for some of them to end so I actually have more time to write!
I’m sure all of you reading this can identify some with it, even if the details in your life are very different.My three-year-old grandson, after being told that Grandma writes books, has kept asking me why.
My response–and most likely yours, too–is that I love it!
