Listening to “Mindfields” by Prodigy.
So tonight marks the end of my vacation. *sigh* Tomorrow I start studying for the second portion of my boards. Yay. *sarcasm*
I really needed the break though…desperately needed it. I feel more refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to take on the world again (okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a little :P).
Anywho, I managed to add another 1.5K words to A Beautiful Lie over the weekend, which puts me at a total of nearly 8K for the week.
Not the goal I aimed for (10K), but hey, my husband wanted a little attention too. 😛 The craziest thing is that the plot for book four (Black Bullet, Jon’s story) came to me in its entirety over the week, which is terrible since now I want to write it! But it’ll have to wait until this one is over, at least. Of course, I still love writing every minute of ABL…I just get distracted by the shiny new idea (don’t we all?). And, you know, uhhh, maybe I should fix Furious Angels and get it out there…
I haven’t submitted my short stories/poems to the ezines I intended to, but I hope to do so this week in between studying.
I didn’t get as much running in as I would’ve liked due to the 100 degree days, but its been a little cooler, so we’ll see how this week goes. I’ve been reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King, and I really love it so far. No surprise, when do I not love his books? I spent some quality time with my pets, and all in all, life is good. I’m hoping studying for these boards won’t turn out to be as grueling as the first set (and man, THAT was grueling), but I guess I’ll find out soon enough!
Today, hubby and I spent an obscene amount of money shopping for new summer clothes, since our current wardrobe is about half a decade old. I had a lot of fun, but I’m definitely wincing right now. Hey, whattya gonna do? Shit you need is shit you need. The sales today were RIDICULOUS since the stores are cleaning out for the fall line. Considering what we paid for, we got an ABSURD amount of merchandise. Hubby managed to get a $200 pair of pants for $20, so yeah, can’t complain too much!
Now I’m just sitting with a glass of wine and ready to get back into 11/22/63. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Until next time…
