Writing through the holiday season has some challenges for me.
I would love to say I wake-up in the quiet early hours of the morning but that would be a lie. I drink a lot of wine over the holidays and tend to sleep in much later during those days.
Also, my mother is visiting.
I love my mother.
In the middle of the day when the house seems quiet – I sneak off to the office, open my lap top, and begin writing.
“Darcie, did you hear there is a storm coming out east?”
I look at the computer and regain my thoughts.
“Clara, says that is going to be a nasty one.”
I get up and close the office door.
I have no idea who Clara is.
I sit down and start to write.
She hollers through the office door “Darcie, I think I am going to make some biscuits.”
“Okay. Sounds good.”
“You are out of milk.”
I get up from my desk, grab the keys, drive to the convenience store to pick-up the milk, and return home.
I retreat upstairs into the quiet space of my bedroom. I open my laptop and she then yells up the stairs,”Darcie!”
“Nevermind. I forgot.”
At this point, I realize resistance is futile and wave my white flag.
I go downstairs, sit in her vicinity, pour myself a large goblet of wine, and curl up with a good book.
