On Today's Menu -- Quesadillas, Sudo'hone, Shrimp Lo Mein, and just for giggles, The-Two-Guys-in-Vermont-who-make-that-ice-cream Cherry Garcia.
I know, I have an eclectic sense of taste today. Goes along with the week I've had.
After the high of Monday, the rest of the week pretty much went downhill on a personal level. Okay, not all the way down, but just enough to make me grumpy. I don't honestly know how people live through a 'rainy season'.
On a writing level however, I couldn't have had a better week. I know most of you don't pay any attention to my sidebar and that's okay, but I just wanted to let you know I'm closing in on the end of Ellis and Violet's story. 77,301K as of last night at 7:45 pm.
Eight thousand more words. That's it and I'm done. I have three plot lines to tie together, a wedding to plan, and a villainess who needs to get her comeuppance. I also found a surprise surprise totally big freaking surprise NEW character who is totally freaking going to blow the doors off the end of the story. (And he will get his own book out of the deal. How cool is that? His name is Rory.)
I wrote some end notes while waiting in the pick-up line at school so I know pretty much where I'm going with the whole thing. And you know, I have to say, as much as I write in my pants, this outlining thing isn't so bad -- especially if I don't force it.
I'm sorry I don't have any links this week. I tried to get around to as many of you as I could. There's a lot of great stuff going on. Yay Roland! Yay Talli! Yay Lisa and Laura!
The writing took up a lot of time, and as you know, the writing comes first. I also got lost for two hours one day doing research, but it was important so ...
I hope you all have a great weekend. I'll be digging a trench.
**6:15 am I just heard about the massive quake and tsunami in Japan. I will be praying for those affected, and for those of you on the West Coast and Hawaii. Stay safe.
