Best Weekend Plans Ever: A 2-night writing getaway!
Well, maybe not the best ever. There's no ocean involved (sadly, sadly). But my wonderful husband, upon listening to me lament (once or twice) about my need for intense work time, made some last-minute reservations at our favorite hotel. They've got free wifi, big desks, and it's right across the street from one of our favorite bistros.
"What will you do, though, while I'm writing?" I asked. (Because, yanno. Seriously.)
Mr. A shrugged. "Oh, I'll find something to do."
Isn't he amazing? Thing is, he will find things to do. Not the least of which will, no doubt, be decompressing from what's been a very intense time at his day job. But he's also an invaluable part of my writing process, because he reads, critiques, brainstorms--and makes me laugh.
So, yeah. I'm the tiniest bit excited about this! I'm in the midst of a huge and wondrous almost-rewrite (revisions on speed, if you will). We're talking voice overhaul, character overhaul, backstory overhaul--it's wonderful! (You know I love revisions. This is the best of all worlds.) And a change of scenery with a bed I don't have to make and food I don't have to prepare is just what I need.
Anyway, that's my weekend! If you'll be joining me in ANY way--a quiet Saturday morning writing time with coffee, an evening of drafting, a 30-minute gem of writing time in the midst of a busy weekend--let me know! It always feels good to know that we're not writing in a vacuum.
Also--a reminder that submissions will open on Monday for our Logline Critique Round Two! I'll post the guidelines on Monday morning.
And now, adieu! Wish me well; I have high hopes for high productivity!
