11 days!! I have a week and a half away from work, time to hang around in my jammies, and write and snuggle with the kids on the couch and watch cartoons. I'm so looking forward to this.
I've been planning to head on up north for a visit with the rest of the clan for the weekend but I'll be home early next week to putz around the house. Get the wallpaper up in my oldest's room, catch up the laundry, write even more *G*
I just found out about a contest the involves submitting your last chapter. That's a unique twist. Of course I immediately started wondering if I could get my last chapter ready. I have one...and I'm about 80% sure that is how my book will end. LOL.
I'll see how close I get by monday but I'm not honestly trying to get it done by then. My creative juices have dried up to a thick concentrated sludge. The ideas are there, just not flowing freely.
Yes I have a habit of trying to run before I walk. Logically I should finish the book before I start submitting it. It's just that contests seem like a good way to get feedback on how I am doing. If I get a score sheet back trashing a certain part/aspect of the story then I know to edit that area before moving on.
*snort* Like I could actually edit anything. I am finding that is one of the hardest parts. Editing chunks of your book out. Scenes that were really cute to me but distrupted the story flow. I guess I am a packrat because I never just delete them. I have a 'just in case' file they go in. You never know I might find a good place for them.
