It’s been a busy busy weekend. I had a self defense seminar Saturday morning at my dojo, a bunch of household stuff to knock out Saturday afternoon. Hubs and I planned to go see Pitch Perfect 2 Saturday night, but by the time we got to the theater, there was NO WAY we could get through the ticket line before all the previews were done, so we ended up coming home, where I made the first blueberry crumble of the season and we watched Empire Strikes Back on Bluray. Never gets old. I love the dynamics between Han and Leia so so much… Spent today with my mom for a delayed Mother’s Day since I was hacking up a lung on actual Mother’s Day.
I got bunnied in a big big way this past week. A quartet of books, contemporary romance, unrelated to anything else I’ve got going on. Very very character driven. It’ll be a lot of fun. An exploration of female friendships, which is something I love in Nora Roberts’ trilogies and quartets. So I’ve been making all kinds of notes about that. Who knows when I’ll get to actually writing it, but I’m really looking forward to it.
It was a decent word count week, I suppose. I got about 5,500 words. Some of that was writing and rewriting my way through the Black Moment sequence. The first pass didn’t get it, and it wasn’t until I spent some time talking it through with my CP that I sorted out the problem. This is probably the hardest part of the entire book. I finished up that sequence this morning. I’m hoping to knock out the rest of this act by the end of the week, which ought to be manageable as there’s no out of town travel for work this week. 11 scenes left in the book. Getting there. Not as quick as I’d like but…getting there.
I’m finally fully well after my sinus infection/brush with bronchitis. I’m really ready to get back into the groove. I’ve got 2 weeks of lost training to make up for in preparation for my upcoming blue belt test in early June. It’s been sixteen years since I did this last–lots and lots of material to cover. Plus I just feel ready to MOVE again. Which is nice. I missed having energy the last couple of weeks.
