Five more days! Yet another countdown for me, I have five more work days to get through and then I will have off until the 15th. This is very exciting for a number of reasons. Vacation is always good. Holiday pay is always good. The two girls coming from Georgia is wonderful. Time off is great.
One of my goals for this next vacation is to not set the alarm clock for at least two days. I’ll probably do that at the beginning of the vacation because as I get closer to going back to work I have to work back into my normal routine.
Fourth of July we will probably spend getting ready for the girls’ visit. Then they come on the 5thand will be here until the 10th. After that I’ll be in vacation mode. This means I hope that I’ll be writing a lot. My goal is to get several chapters done in my one novel. I also want to start editing the first book.
In addition to the writing, I would like to pull out my list of publishers and work on doing some submissions. I haven’t done any in a while. I have two articles ready for one publication and hope to meet the deadline on them. After that I need to update my work list spreadsheet and clear out my emails of the rejections. Then I have to look at my spreadsheet to see what old submissions I have that I haven’t gotten a response on.
Hopefully in the cleaning and getting ready portion of the vacation I’ll have time to clean my office a bit so it is more organized and less chaotic. If I get that done it makes it much easier to do the submissions.
