I have a feeling this week will go slow. Why is that? Because I leave for my vacation once it's over.
We're not going anywhere exotic this time. No cruises or visits home to
(yeah, I consider trips home to be exotic!). The cruise will happen in November and the visit home sometime next year (that's the plan, anyway). This trip is with a friend at a timeshare in… Santa Barbara ! Arkansas
Never been to the state – not even to drive through. I expect it will be hot. And I don't expect to get a lot of writing done. Not unless I'm alone (and that doesn't seem all that likely).
I don't need to write all the time. I do have two long car drives, where I could write if I want, but will most likely read (during the times I'm not actually the driver, that is). So I plan on packing a few books – hopefully more than I need. That's better than not packing enough.
I do hope I finish with my edits/revisions of Book 4 before we leave. I only have about 10 pages left. But I will not rush through them. If I can spend quality time with the previous 328 pages, I will spend quality time with the remaining 10.
So be prepared critiquers – if you're reading this. The book will soon be in the e-mail!!

Went and saw Snow White and the Huntsman on Saturday. While I enjoyed the movie, I was a bit disappointed in the end. I won't spoil it for anyone and say why.
Next targeted movie – Magic Mike. My daughter already said she'd go with me!

As if it weren't enough I'm editing Book 4 while writing Book 5, I'm also writing a short story. There's a sort-of contest in my chapter that I'd like to submit. I just hope I can get it finished before the due date AND I hope it turns out well. But I'm having fun writing it because it has my vampires in it. Always fun to write them (at least it is for me).
I know a few writers who have more than one project going on at a time. Doing two writing projects was new enough for me. Adding a third is mind boggling. But if I can pull it off, more power to me (whoo-hoo!).
You all have a good day and let's see how fast this week can go! My vacation is calling…
