Seriously, I just found out I had another 20 hours of vacation time and they let me put it forward into 2014. So I’m going to get a couple of days off in the first full week of the year. Not a bad way to start off 2014, but I am still going to angle to get The Olympics off next year as well. Actually, I am hoping that I can get out of the whole thing before October, get the vacation and declare my two week notice by e-mail the night before I leave my vacation. Would be the best thing to have my final two weeks off paid and get to work on the novel.
I am still pushing through the Nanonovel and more than likely going to try to get completely caught up (and hopefully to pull ahead) on Saturday. I am going to try to get some more done today, but it is looking like the majority of the work is going to be on Saturday, which isn’t too bad for me. I just want to get this done and out of the way so I can get on to I/O Error and take a break from fantasy/romance/steampunk for a while…well, not really much of a break since I’ll be working a little more on the Tyro novel to get it finished. After that, it’s going to be an assembly line process of writing one novel, editing another and outlining a third. 2014 is going to be the Year of Production. Hopefully, it will also be the Year of Freedom.
Beyond vacation, I can’t wait for next week since it’s Thanksgiving and I am looking forward to cooking the dinner. I will post pictures of the ensuing meal here and let you know if the food has killed me or not. This is the only time that I really go all out and cook. Most of the times, it’s either something really quick (beans, rice, sausage and a healthy amount of honey mustard), microwavable meals or sandwiches. It’s amazing that I am alive sometimes. Anyhow, this Thanksgiving is going to be a simple meal and a nice dessert from Cheesecake Factory…followed by a coma. Because – tradition!
I should get to Nanonovel since it’s creeping up past the afternoon and I will still need to shower, shave and all that. Thanks for reading, feel free to drop a comment (I respond!) and I hope y’all have a good day.
