Ever have that feeling you need a vacation from your vacation? That’s the way it hit me today as I returned to work, with the house looking like a clothes/toys bomb went off, and far too little sleep.
I married off my dear friend on Saturday, and it was truly an amazing day. My husband did an awesome job with the ceremony (he officiated — his first wedding), and the whole event was just their style. We met up with so many friends it was absolutely unreal. The kind of situation where I look around and realize how many wonderful people I’m connected with. I am one lucky woman.
I’m excited to have a little more head space for writing the rest of the summer, because I’ve been working on one aspect of the wedding or another for several months … in all of my grand amounts of spare time.
So what did I accomplish with the most days off in a row since I returned from my last maternity leave? Let me give it to you straight: I did not write a single word on my vacation. I know that’s okay. I needed the vacation desperately. And like I said before, now I need a vacation from my vacation.
But seriously, I must get back to business. In the next couple of weeks I will finish the final scenes of Queen Witch. Then I will print a copy of Flight and start editing and revising that. And starting August 1, I’ll be drafting Descent. Somewhere in there I will edit the remaining two stories in my short story collection and publish the collection.
That be the plan. I hope all of my fellow ROWers have achieved more since the starting line than I have. 🙂
