I’m sitting here in the airport waiting to go home now. My flight doesn’t board for another half hour, so I’ve got time to think. It’s been a fun week and a half, and quite the change for me from my usual daily routine at home, even for the one I keep when I do a staycation, also known as a writecation for me.
I’ve enjoyed that though and I think I’ll get home refreshed from it, from not really writing. Don’t get me wrong, I did write some and work on writing, but not with my usual drive or volume.
I mean, I finished first drafts of the two short stories I have deadlines for. I still need to revise both though a I’m fairly sure that at least one will require me to tear it apart pretty badly to get it in proper working order. I can handle that though. The first drafts just the starting place, after all.
I’ve also begun the revision work on Possession, but again, I haven’t gotten that far yet with it, though I’ve been free to work on it since Thursday. I was just busy with family, who I only see once a year. Also, like I said, I was taking it easy while on vacation.
I know September 10th will sneak up on me faster than I can believe at the moment, but in a way, it’s good to have a break once in a while. I didn’t really when I was on my family visit last year, partly because I was too busy outlining Devan’s first book, Where The Ether Flows. I couldn’t look away from doing that for a second, I was so enthralled by my Necromancer.
When I get home though, it’s going to be full steam ahead on the revisions to all three manuscripts with a deadline. So much work to do, but you guys know I love it that way. So much better than being bored. Besides, it gives me so much to look forward to. 🙂
It’s been a nice trip, but it’ll be good to get home and back into the swing of things.
