I caught a bit of sun on this one, but I love the happy look on Granddaughter Aerro’s face.
We spent the weekend with family, celebrating David’s birthday and Tobiah’s a bit late. It’s fun to do these things, to see everyone, but I ate lots of food I don’t normally eat, got no writing done and got all out of my routine.
I know – I’m cantankerous.
I think this is why so many people dislike Mondays though. It’s much easier to stay with a routine than to start it up again. My folks are retired and they don’t notice the days of the week so much, except for planning events. Sometimes I think that’s the best way, just to let the flow of time be even. When I’m home for the weekend, though I sleep a bit later, it’s not by a huge amount – maybe an hour – and my exercise and writing schedule is pretty much the same. Then Monday isn’t so much of a shock.
This morning, though…
So I’m gearing up. Lots to do this week. I’m almost done revising The Body Gift. I’ve been strengthening the hero and it’s working. I found myself mooning over him the other day, which is lovely, because he’s been very difficult to get to know. I’m 70% done, with 15 chapters to do over the next 7 days. Totally doable, right?
(There is the small matter of adding an entirely new scene where my characters end up in this very particular image I have in my head, but I don’t really know how they get there or what happens. The story magic will fill that in, right?)
Then I send it off to my (potential) agent who is enthusiastically (I like to think) waiting for it.
Okay, off I go to catch a wave. Wish me luck!

Yay for family and double yay for TBG progress!
I'm a creature of habit, so getting me out of my routine can make me a little cantankerous, too. Still, I think it's good to do. It helps keep the routine fresh.
And Aerro is totally adorable. 🙂
It's natural to feel cantankerous when you've spent all weekend wearing your grandmother hat.
Thanks KAK! You'll like Marc better now.
The grandmother hat does pinch a little – thanks for the validation Linda and Kev.
Aerro is amazingly adorable!
What a cutie pie! 🙂
Good luck with your submission! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you. 🙂
And boy do I know about routine… I had a lovely one whilst unemployed. Now I have to figure out my new one with Day Job thrown in.
