Dear Bright and Shiny Friday,
I have big plans for you.
Before you ask, the answer is no to the following: no, it’s not time for Survivor to come back on yet. No, we are not going to the Bahamas¹ today and, unfortunately, no, we won’t see any oceans. Or mountains, for that matter. No, we aren’t going on a J.Crew shopping spree, or to a spa, but those things *could* be arranged — IF you cooperate with me today.
Which you will, because what I have in store for you, Bright and Shiny Friday?
Is SO much better.
Get this, Bright and Shiny Friday: you. Me. Manuscript, pens, highlighters, note cards. Laptop, of course. Library table, those way-more-comfortable-than-they-look chairs, and that cute little lamp that’s attached to the middle of the table. And because Library is cool, yes we can — and will! — bring a non-fat latte and some goldfish crackers, maybe even some nonperishable food items for lunch, since we’ll be there, like, all day.² Another reason Library rocks? They’re not even making us pay rent, even though we’re totally moving in for the day.
Because today? Is Kayla + Bright and Shiny Friday’s Revision Mini-Boot-Camp Day! You know, as if someone were actually running it. Except they’re not. I just decided we could use a little extra conditioning today.
No, I’m not torturing you. There will be lattes! And goldfish! For a while, anyway. And, after it’s over, there will be that rewarding feeling you get when you sit there, work hard, and have something to show for it.
Be ready in ten minutes. I just need to pack my three bags.

¹Yet. That’s five weeks away.
²I wonder if there’s easily accessible hot water there? I could so bring the French press and some pre-ground coffee beans?
