Good Friday still means Working for The Glamorous Life of the Writer (snickity!)

Glamorous life of the writer

Ah, friends, my head/heart/brain/arms/hands/everything is completely overtaken now to finish VKIII/Final Graces novel. Yes, the Glamorous Life of the Writer is . . . well . . . huhn. It means even though many are taking a holiday weekend off – I will not be. Although, I will try to take a little time here and there . . . perhaps . . . to eat chocolate, maybe see a play, walk the cove. Still, BEST DANGED JOB IN THE WORLD!
Your comments and visits mean a lot to me, so thank you. I have been missing your blogs and appreciate your stopping by here even when I haven’t been by your place in a while (dang me). I will say, that’s the beauty of Facebook – I can keep up with people and even see their blog posts there more easily and quickly. If you are on Facebook, come friend me so I can see what you are doing at a glance! I’ve had so many distractions with the writing of this novel and it has come down to me having to put blinders on and plow plow plow this danged field!

Oh, the glamour (:-D)

Now, I want to leave you with some images of Fairhope, Alabama. You’ve seen some photos of our Girl’s Night Out, and etc, in the two posts below, and really I’d meant to do several write-ups about the Gulf Coast Creative Writing Teachers Association Conference (it was wonderful, and Angie Ledbetter and I were happy with our panel discussion), and more on the beautiful quaint city of Fairhope, and more on the shenanigans my friends and I doodled dee dahed – but, my responsibility is to finishing the novel and it’s hard to concentrate on other things right now. I’ve backed myself (or events/distractions pushed me, too!) into the corner of “You better finish this danged book, Kathryn, or ELSE!” The “or ELSE” would mean having to contact my editor, Deb Smith, and say “Um, teehee, um, I didn’t finish . . . teehee . . . didn’t make my deadline, teeheehee . . .” which has never ever happened and I do not want it to happen this time, either. Lawd!
