I'm thoroughly enjoying this long weekend, as it allows me to spend more time with my girls, and to finish a few odds and ends around the house. It is cloudy outside, so I'm really wanting to just get underneath a quilt and relax.
As I look outside, I'm noticing there is not one empty spot on the parking lot. I guess everyone attended barbecues during the weekend. It makes complete sense. You need a recovery day after a busy weekend with friends and family!
As far as writing is concerned, I have added some words to a few of my manuscripts this weekend. Saturday, I started a short story, now consisting of 5,174 words. I'm taking my time with all my works in progress. There are instances when I feel I can't write fast enough, and there have been times when I have actually deleted some of my story to spin it in a totally different direction.
The ole ball and chain (my laptop) accompanied me to family members' houses this weekend. My mother actually told me not to fire up my laptop at her house, and to talk with folks. LOL I never completely ignore anyone. I can write and talk at the same time, although it can be rather frustrating. Eventually, I found a small corner and started working on my latest piece. Is writing an addiction? Do any of you experience this as well?
