Spring Break! Thank the heavens!
Spring break is my one-track-mind time, where everything I do will be focused on writing my novel!
That is, after I take a three-day mental break. I’m going to read three books I’ve been dying to finish: Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett; Rose Madder, by Stephen King; and A Widow for One Year, by John Irving. (I’d thought I’d read Widow, but I really don’t think I have. Either way, good excuse to re-read it! :-)
Maybe I’ll do some cleaning. Definitely some extra sleeping. I might even spend the WHOLE day on Sunday in my pajamas. Maybe I’ll spend the whole day in BED! Wouldn’t that be nice?
So while I might pop by y’all’s blogs next week when I’m home, I probably won’t blog until April 8. I’ll be at Borders, writing, although I might take a day or two to go fishing and kayaking. (DH baits the hook, removes, and cleans the fish per a bargain we struck ages ago.)
Will you come back after my break? I’ll miss you while I’m reading, writing, and kayaking!
It’s been a rough year. I’m mentally burnt-out, physically drained, and just plain out exhausted. I pushed myself right over the edge, and even though I’m writing a little (<i>leeeeeetle bit</i>) every day, I’m not getting much done other than researching and thinking and scribbles on other little stories to keep me in writing practice.
My brain is fried. My foot is still a pain in the … foot after eight months, which is totally hindering my exercise loves, which usually keep me balanced. But …
And world peace!
