Turkey and Time Off

Woohoo!!! I'm off work until Monday! It is such a GREAT feeling. This year's kids are a tough bunch emotionally and I'm feeling worn down already.

BUT, for the next 5 days I have no work to do! Well, that's not entirely true. There is this matter of a certain Golden Heart entry to finish. And some queries to print out. Oh, and another contest to enter with my 2 manuscripts. Hhhmmm. Why is it that I'm typing a blog entry?

Oh, I wanted to share my progress over the weekend. I FINALLY managed to work through my block. (Yes, I have to learn to trust that my muse and my characters will see me through.) I've got a couple new scenes to add, which I plan to finish today, and then I can type THE END. Of course, I'll have to go back through it all and pull it tighter still, but that won't be so bad now that I know all the pieces fit together. I didn't end up scrapping those 20 pages. Yes, I'd taken them out, but I knew I'd probably want to reshape them and stick them back into the manuscript.

So, with my 5 days off I plan to work like a crazy woman to pull my GH entry together and make the story shine. Oh, and I'll probably have a few pieces of turkey too.
