Ah, sigh.

No numbers. No word counts. For now, nothing at all.

Radio silence until I get settled at the new job. A few days, at least. Going to visit with friends this weekend. Can’t wait.

You know what else I can’t wait for? The chance to get back into that manuscript, up to my elbows in the muck.

Also? The chance to work on something else. It’s been a long time since I’ve given myself permission to think about writing something new. A new story draft seems like the most likely thing to come out of an hour here, an hour there. Maybe I’m completely delusional.

In any case, I have to be better about carrying around the notebooks and pens. I have to be better about making the time and then TAKING the time once it’s there. I have to be better.

    Good Lord! Your race to the end is inpsiring, but it wore me out to think about it. I can't imagine cranking out 3000+ under pressure (6000+ without pressure, yes, but…)Enjoy the free, fun weekend and start of new job!I got a positive report from a published friend who read the first 50pp. Yay.Chance to work on something else?? Heather Sellers says beware the big sexy new book idea until you are ALLLLL done. I'm just sayin'

    I know! It wore me out, too.I just meant a short story or two that I need to get out the door. The fall submission period is upon us! (Although I do have an idea for the next book. OK, next three books.)
