The television commercials are talking about back to school.
My hubby is talking about hunting season.
I'm still trying to figure out where June and July went!
And I started fair season the middle of July which means a trip a week to a county fair to judge for five weeks. I love judging and I love seeing the different fairs. But it cuts into writing, though this year I've been dictating as I drive. That has helped! In fact, I will have to say, I would be much farther behind if I hadn't bought Dragon and a small recorder. I wrote the third of one book by dictation, and the current WIP will be half written with dictation. It's the only way I can get it done being on the road so much.
One of my critique partners said the book coming out the end of this month flowed well, which made me happy considering so much of it was dictated then I had to decipher the dictation. They say the more you use Dragon the better it learns your speech and you have fewer sentences to figure out. I really hope so! That would shorten the time it takes to fix what I dictated. LOL

This month, I'm finishing up judging at the Oregon State Fair, visiting nieces who will be home from Spain for a few weeks, and attending the Sumpter Flea Market over Labor Day weekend.
In between all of this I need to get 2-3k words written a day. I'll let you know in December if I made my goal!
How has your summer gone? Fast, slow, or just right?
