I have returned

Now that the vacation is behind me, I have nothing but work to look forward to.  Joy.  But I didn’t come home empty handed from Florida, and I’m not talking about souvenirs.  I came back inspired.  I have written 3,000 words since I came back and couldn’t be happier.  (Cue girlish giggling.)

I did try to write while I was down there, but the writing machine in my head must’ve been on vaca, too, because I had nothing.  And I know if I try too hard, all that comes out is garbage.  So I gave up for the week I was down there and just tried to enjoy myself.  Much fun was had, but now my brain seems to know it’s back to business.

I also just realized today that X-Team Three is well over half done!  It still doesn’t feel real, though.  Finishing the first draft is only the beginning.  Then comes editing, second draft, editing, editing, oh and did I say editing?  Then the third and hopefully final draft.  This novel needs to be perfect because it’s going on Amazon when I’m done.  Then I can actually say I’m a published author.  (Self-published, but who’s counting?) 😉

Oh boy!

Going on vaca tomorrow, but DON’T YOU WORRY YOUR LITTLE SELVES!  I will be writing still.  And I’ll probably be deleting it all when I get back in two weeks.  Why?  Because I intend on drinking pretty much every moment I’m awake, and writing and drinking don’t mix.  Unless your intent is a bunch of garbage that you probably won’t remember typing in the first place.

IT’S GONNA BE FANTASTIC!  I CAN’T WAIT!
