A Start

Yesterday I finally took the plunge back into my manuscript. I knew exactly what I wanted to write, having formulated a scene in my head a bit earlier in the day. The writing still felt a bit stilted as my fingers pounded on the keyboard, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. So. That's a good thing. I've officially "started writing" again and it's a welcome relief. I plan on looking at my goals again to try and motivate myself to get this novel done and start on the next one.

The weekend was good - quiet, but good. Friday night, I went to go see Quantum of Solace all by myself. Nothing like a cold soda, a bag of M&M's, and movie popcorn and a good movie. And wow, it was a good movie. I'm not sure if it was as good as Casino Royale, but I'm still formulating an opinion. Daniel Craig is still excellent as Bond, though, and I have enjoyed how he has reinvented the character.

Saturday I slept in (bliss!), read a lot, did some laundry and other household chores, and just relaxed. That's the kind of weekends I like to have.

How about you? How was your weekend?


  1. The weekend was busy but good, and I approach the coming week with much more optimism.

  2. Quiet weekend in New England. A little Thanksgiving Day shopping here, getting ready. Glad you're writing, and relaxing.

  3. My weekend was busy but okay, yours sounds heavenly!

  4. I love the picture! It reminds me a little of PA.
    We had a good weekend--accomplished some things we needed to get done.
    So glad you are started again on a new book! the hard part is starting and you have:)

  5. Still catching up from being out of town. Still haven't managed to unpack! Had to go into work today even though my day off...

    Kudos on jumping back into the writing! And the Daniel Craig update. Can't wait to see QoS!


I love to hear from you!
