Vacation Time

Since I mentally checked out last week, why not go all out and take a week and a half off from the j-o-b? I have absolutely no plans other than to spend the glorious holidays w/ my family. The kids are going to open their presents and torture Mommy and Daddy w/ their motor toys and racket from sun up to sun down…and I plan to enjoy every minute of it. πŸ™‚

While enjoying the torture, I will be away from the blog for a couple of weeks. But I’ll have plenty to say upon my return, so you won’t be missing out. Take a break, enjoy your families, and stay warm in this COLD weather (unless you’re somewhere like southern TX or Hawaii…or in Australia where people go to the BEACH for Christmas :: gasps ::, in which case, I’ll be TOTALLY jealous and ask you to mail me a plane ticket as a gift). πŸ˜‰

So, if I don’t “see” you all before next Tuesday…

…and until I return…

Happy Holidays

Greetings!

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a few moments out of my not-so-but-more-times-than-not busy life to…

…my new followers and to thank all of you for supporting me and for at least tolerating my rants and nonsense. I tell ya…having you guys backing me makes me feel so…

Oh…ok…not quite, huh? Ok…then how about…

Yeah!! There we go! Nothing like having a support system to encourage and to give me a swift kick in the ass to tell me to get on the ball.

So, tomorrow is the start of NaNoWriMo, and I need you guys more than ever to keep me on my game. Hmkay?!?! I’m not going to reveal too much about the new novel right now, but after having an epiphany to slap me during rush hour traffic yesterday, I’m stoked! So…

Don’t worry; I won’t let your literary thirsts linger too long. πŸ™‚ I’ll pop in a few times a week to update you guys on how the writing is going, if I’m close to meeting that 50,000-word count goal, and even share a few snippets from the novel. I must warn you that the writing will be as raw as sand paper on bare ass, but keep in mind…no editors’ pick or bestseller you read is ever a writer’s first draft. The “real” writing comes in edit #2,873…and that’s before it even makes it to an editor’s desk. :: sigh :: Stay strong for me, my friends. πŸ™‚
