Plot Problems Resolved!

I figured out my plotting problem and I've been working ever since! Unfortunately, the weekend never lasts as long as I want it to and it's back to work tomorrow. To add insult to injury, I also have another dentist appointment tomorrow to start getting some of these teeth fixed. *groan* I am REALLY not looking forward to that. Yeah, yeah, it will be completely numb, but I still have shivers over that whole numbing process. It's a needle and that's enough to make me skip the entire thing!

Didn't do much this weekend, though. Had a very relaxing Saturday night. Hubby made his famous chicken noodle and butterball soup and we sat around and watched movies. I went to church this morning, did the tax return this afternoon (another *groan*), and have been working on my novel ever since.

Yes, I am actually missing the Superbowl right now in favor of writing!

It's just the cat and I in the house. Classical music playing in the background, and no t.v. The cat and I are becoming better acquainted. Fortunately, I'm not as allergic to her as I thought I would be and she's now taken up permanent residence in the house. I'm still not a cat person - I love how my dog will come to me when I want him to - the cat could care less if I'm alive - but we're getting along now. She'll even come and lay on my chests sometimes. It's the whole claw thing that gets to me - and when she unsheaths those things, I want to bolt out the door.

It's days like this, when I'm totally immersed in my writing, that I really groan over the whole day job thing. But that's why I'm really hitting the writing hard tonight - I want to someday not be indebted to that whole day job thing. Of course, I realize that hubby will still have to keep his job- and it better be a darn good one- to allow me to stay home part of the time and write. But that's the goal.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!


  1. A productive day and the plotting log jam broken. Mission accomplished!

    But you had to mention work tommorow. Ugh. Not looking forward to that. Oh well, one day closer to next weekend.

  2. Congratulations on figuring out the plot problem! Hope this week is a stellar writing week for you. :)

    I didn't watch the superbowl either. I don't think I ever have.

  6. Thanks for all the encouragement, everyone!

  7. Right (write?) on! Glad your problem is solved. I hear you about the day job. I love my day job but I'd still love to write fiction full time.
