HOW I STAYED SANE DURING THE HURRICANE (AND 5 DAYS OF NO SCHOOL)

My family spent the entire week dealing with Hurricane Irma. It wasn’t nearly as bad here in northeast Georgia where we live as in Florida, but there were tons of fallen trees and many, many families without power for days. 

Were you or your loved ones in the path of the hurricane? Let us know in the comments if you were able to stay safe and dry!

As for us, school and work were pretty much cancelled on Monday and Tuesday so all of us were home. We lost power Monday evening for 3 hours and then again all night, but we were some of the lucky ones. Several of our family members lost power for two whole days or longer. 

School has been cancelled every day this week with many road closures due to fallen trees and power lines and tons of people still without power and/or water. 

We hunkered down, though, and were pretty much fine. My biggest hurdle was trying to stay focused on work during the storm.

WHY IT TOOK ME 6 YEARS & 7 BOOKS TO TELL PEOPLE I'M A WRITER

How do people react when you tell them you’re a writer?

What did your friends and family say the first time you told them you were writing a book? Did you tell them right away or did you wait before you told them?

Maybe this wasn’t a big deal for you at all, but for me it was, and it’s something that I’ve only recently been able to get over.

Let me tell you my story (and why it took me six years to tell anyone I was a writer).
