Three Days, Three Chapters
It was a three day weekend for me. Normally I would be thrilled to have three days off work but my time off lately has been stressful. My middle daughter’s birthday was today and we had a good time even though it snowed a lot. It was supposed to be a full weekend with a lot of stuff going on.
I didn’t expect to get a lot of writing done this weekend. However, I got three chapters written. They are longer chapters but there is no good splitting point. So I’m leaving them as longer chapters for now. It’s funny how I’ll finish a chapter and think wow that is good. When I try to start the next chapter, I decide I need to think on it for a bit. I go away and do different things like sleep or whatever.
This weekend we saw the King’s Speech – great movie – go see it. After spending the day on Saturday hanging out with a friend, daughter, and hubby, I was able to finish off a chapter. It felt good and worked out well. Sunday I was supposed to meet up with my artist but she couldn’t come out. I took the time to write and finished off another chapter. This morning I was supposed to have the morning to myself to write and I sort of did. I got a good start on my chapter before Vicki and I wandered off on our day. We had a great day. It was fun to hang out with her and spoil her a bit.
After supper tonight, Ken went to bed, Vicki watched her show on TV and I wrote. I stumbled a bit trying to get the feel for one particular character. I ended up reading some of my earlier scenes with her. After I did that I knew how to write what I needed to do. I finished off another chapter tonight.
Maybe I’m finding a bit of balance in my life? I’m not going to hold my breath on that though. It’s only 11 and I’m headed for bed. It’s been a better weekend than I expected and now it is time to go back to work.
