Just wanted to drop a quick note to all of you to say I’m surviving, thriving, and taking a break from all Diligence this weekend. My sweet husband booked us a weekend in a fun hotel to celebrate no-more-grad-school-(for a month)-and-happy-almost-Christmasness. So…that’s what we’re doing!
With less than 8,000 words to my goal, and the gravity with which the end of my novel keeps sucking me in, taking a break for the weekend seems to be an alright decision. Never fear, though – Monday and Tuesday, I plan to dig deep, sit long, and write until my hand falls off. Then I’ll put it back on, drink another latte, and keep going.
I miss you all, which is why I wanted to drop you a quick line. Hopefully, I’ll be able to squeeze in one or two more posts before we leave for Christmas.
Take care, all, and I’ll see you again soon!

PS: To clarify, it’s my sweet husband who is in grad school. Just in case you thought I’d left out a sort of major detail of my life.
