This is pretty much how I spent today.
Our summer vacation was a last minute thing, we barely fit it in before Labor Day. It’s been a great end to our summer. I hope everyone had a fun summer, now on to Autumn!
We are leaving in a few days for our last minute summer vacation. I’ll be spending the next few days preparing for the trip and getting the house straightened up. I am excited for the trip but I don’t think it has quite sunk in yet that we are going. We put it together just a few weeks ago, I usually plan things out months in advance and it’s taking me a bit to come around to the reality of it. I’ve also been racing to finish a house project before we go so I haven’t even had time to think about the vacation beyond looking at the calendar.
Of course, that means that my writing on the novella has dwindled but I am looking forward to getting some work done when we go tothe beach. I am packing my notebook along with my many, many sticky notes. I’ll spend a good amount of time putting together a better outline. Hopefully by the time we get home I’ll also have a bit more written. My goal is to have the novella finished by the end of September. Here’s hoping for no major interruptions.
I’ll post again on Friday! Have a great week!
Every summer we take a week long vacation in California, in a normal year, we’d be there this weekend. This year we had some work related changes and figured it was best to skip our trip. Sometimes this grown up stuff is a real pain.
It turns out though that we need a little vacation. A little planning and a couple of emails later and we are all set for a long weekend in Southern California. One of those days will be spent hanging at the beach, some time in the water and a lot of reading and relaxing. I cannot wait!
Do you bring books on vacation? What have you been reading this summer? What is your favorite format, books or eReader?
There’s a ton of stuff to do first, so I should get to it. 🙂
