This year, our school system moved up our start time to make way for a fall break. I love fall break, but starting school so early is a bit strange. 🙂 Still, we packed our lunch boxes and backpacks and sent the kids out the door yesterday to begin their new year of school.
Maybe this is why fall feels like such a new beginning for me every year. This milestone means new teachers, new classrooms (and new school supplies!!!). Yes, I’m an office supply junkie, so I love back-to-school shopping.
It’s also a great time to start a new project! And that’s exactly what I’m doing this year. I’ve started writing Zachary Gatlin’s book, which will be a fourth in the Mill Town Millionaires series for Harlequin Desire. I’ve discovered that Zachary is very strong and almost stern. His heroine, Kenna, is also strong, but in her own quiet way. I love learning all the nuances of new characters! I hope I can share more of them with you soon.
What about you? Are your kids still in the cycle of school starts? Or is fall simply another season for you? For those of you who are overseas, when do your children begin their new school years?
