Nothing says success like taking a vacation to your own lovely living room, amiright? Of course, I’m only taking a vacation from ONE of my jobs. That leaves 2 others and a volunteer gig to keep me occupied in case I was worried about getting bored.
I took the time off so that I could finish book revisions. Yes, it’s STILL not finished. The good news is I believe I have it done. The bad news is IT IS NEVER DONE. Besides writing and working, I also volunteered to help with a contest where writers submit manuscripts to “mentors”, who choose one, then help them get it ready to submit to agents. I thought about it first, but I wanted to help, so I said yes. It’s been good – there are some fun reads – but I should have read the fine print. Once I choose, then I need to send REJECTION letters to the ones I didn’t pick. How wonderful is that?? This is not going to go well. I have a very tough time rejecting people. If my past history is any indication, I’ll end up dating these books until I can find a way to provoke a fight and have them reject ME.
At the end of the week, two of my favorite people – my cousins Gingerbread and KarenK, are coming for a visit. It will be a lot like when their moms visit me, only with more daiquiris and fewer 5 a.m. wake up calls.
Their visit will be the highlight of my staycation. What does THAT tell you about my life?
I kid. The DAIQUIRIS will be the highlight, but you knew that already.
