Back At It

November 26, 2007

The kids are back in school, Nancy’s back to teaching, I was back at the gym this morning and am now ready to get back to work.  There are years when Thanksgiving falls so late in November and Christmas break for the kids’ schools begins so early that the time in between is too short to be useful.  Not so this year.  Thanksgiving came early this year, just about as early as it could have.  And the winter break begins relatively late.  We’ve got four solid weeks, and I intend to make the most of them.

Beginning with this week.  I have a story to mail out — I want it off my desk by end of business on Friday.  I have a new project to begin — I want to be world-building by week’s end.  I have a manuscript to critique for the South Carolina Writer’s Workshop (I allowed them to auction off a book-length critique by me for their charity auction) that I want to finish in the next two to three days.  And . . . well, some other things that I might blog about later in the week.

Suffice it to say, I’m ready to be busy again.  I enjoyed the time off last week, but I’m rested now and ready to work.  WordPress doesn’t have those little “Mood” emoticons that some journal sites have for each post, but if it did, my mood for today would definitely be “energized”.

Today’s music:  Mike Mainieri (Wanderlust)

BTW, my entry yesterday about the Aussie elections was picked up by a political ezine/website in Oz as part of their post-election commentary.  Pretty cool!
