Awesome Weekend-Back to Countdown 12 Days Left

December 19, 2005 | Family & Life

Well, it wasn’t a writing weekend and I was prepared for that. I knew family and tennis would take priority. Our match Saturday was great. I was supposed to play second singles, but the opponent defaulted. That means I got a win! As team captain, I went to the match to watch my teammates play and take notes on the opponent. We won 4 out of 5 matches. Did I tell you my ladies are awesome! Dainty, feminine looking, but on the court we are tigers, merciless to our opponents. Reality calling. I’ve got to get back to work, make sure my book is ready to go out after the holidays to an epublisher that wants to read it. As for family, we went to a restaurant we all love. I made reservations for 4:15pm, told hubby the reservations were at 4pm. If you’re in a relationship, you’ll understand. We arrived at 4:20, having left the house at 3:45 and it takes almost 30 minutes to get there. If he reads this, get used to it lover. From now on, you won’t know what time reservations are unless you make them, or check up on me. Like he did yesterday, but we were on the road by then.

Ok, 2006 goals. I’m working on a paranormal Wicca series and according to the excel spreadsheet I’ve set up, I should have the first draft of the first book by the end of March. In order to make sure I keep to my goal, I’ve signed up to read the first twenty pages to my Chicago North RWA group. My critique partners will have had a go at it before that. Boy am I glad I play tennis! I will be able to work the stress off.

But before I get to 2006, I must finish this year. I’ve set a goal of line editing my multi-cultural love story. Three chapters every day. There are minor changes and I want to get it right. My kids are busy entertaining themselves. The oldest is home from college, hanging out with her friends and starting her career search. The high school sophomore is playing video games, eating, and playing tennis with his team friends. Santa arrives in the form of gift cards and they know who Santa is. So, today is a good day. Today is a power day.
