I've been 39 for 4 days and already I can feel the days moving faster! I can't imagine how my life will flash before my eyes when I hit my 70s and 80s!
Been subbin' every day. It'll be so nice to get a paycheck again. Granted I'm so not out of the woods yet, but at least I have a steady job. I still need to focus on finding a permanent position. All in all, I STILL don't regret quitting my other job in June.
Writing- yeah, not so much. I kind of hit a slump last week before my birthday and my CPs "talked me off the ledge." They reminded me that it's okay not to write every day, that I'd just sent off a completed manuscript and that I should feel free to cut myself some slack. So I did. And I have. I spent most of my weekend reading and thinking about my pen name change that will be happening before you know it! (HINT: December)
THEN...I got busy writing again.
BUT...not on the Scottish story. Yes, I love it, the characters and the village, but I'm still caught up in a murderous mood.
So, I allowed myself to truly free-write. And what did I come up with? Not scenes for one of the 3 stories in the series with HIS RELUCTANT PARTNER, nothing for the one I already have close to 100 pages of a rough draft on, and nothing for the one I brainstormed while in Mexico. No, I came up with a BRAND NEW, nameless SUSPENSE. I've got the hero's name, an idea of who he and the heroine are and about 1300 words so far. That's all, but I LOVE it and the words are flowing so I'm thinking this one might have to be my NaNo book.
Speaking of NaNoWriMo, who else is joining the craziness?
