Since the move, I’ve been crazy busy with writing and writing-related things. Here’s the breakdown so far:
- Wrote five short stories for various anthologies (one accepted so far)
- Went at winter WIP with a machete, caused much carnage, on the final read-through now
- Started about 10 new WIPs and made a fresh to-do list
- Settled one one of the above as current WIP, wrote 10K over the weekend
By Sunday night I plan to be completely done with winter WIP and send it off to my best fangirl for her thoughts. After that 10K on the current WIP, I realized it wasn’t working as-is and went back with my machete and almost have it fixed up and ready to proceed. So more or less I’ve been working 16 hour days — though the second half of that is much more fun than the first lol. I shudder to think of the repair job I’m going to have to do on this one.
But I’ve got tunnel vision with my new to-do list, with something new for Loose Id waving frantically for my attention. I just need to quiet the other horny people in my imagination before I can get to work on the dorky couple and their comedy of errors.
Also looking forward to my annual getaway on PEI. Just over a week and I’ll be hitting the road with a carry-on and empty shopping bags. This is my fifth trip over so my itinerary is a mixture of things I’ve done before and stuff I’ve never done:
Shopping trip to Great Canadian Soap. My absolute must stop to this little farm for a stash of Doublemint soap and whipped shea butter cream. I end up with a shopping list a mile long because everyone I know wants me to bring them back some goodies.
The best beer in Canada can be found on PEI. Gahan Honey Wheat isn’t available in NS yet, so I always stock up. This year they’ve moved from the Gahan House restaurant to their own location with a retail shop, so there’s a beer glass and a bucket hat waiting for me.
According to Canadian Living, I can also get a damn good plate of fish & chips across the harbour bridges in Dartmouth, but does John’s Lunch of Dartmouth have Gahan battered fish? Didn’t think so. Ergo, to Cardigan for my foodgasm, TYVM.
As tempting as it was to actually book a cottage in PEI National Park, I settled for a great deal just outside. Why use the main road to get from point A to B when you can zip along the coast and do some fox-spotting along the way?
Since I won’t be traveling alone, I don’t think I’ll get a chance to do as much reading as I normally would but I’ll still be taking my Kobo with me so I can read more of Justine Elyot’s naughty and fun Confessions of a Kinky Wife. Dan might just ruin me for other men. Thank God I have it in ebook. My Mom went bonkers for 50 Shades when she read it and the potential for kinky book theft is higher than usual lately. I wouldn’t want to have to take down the woman who gave birth to me.
