Writing Vacation: The Second Week

Dodge Challenger, Jane's vehicle

Some days the writing vacation from tasks is a push. I still have work. No vacation from that. But I’m pleased with the progress and enjoying the process.

Recap of week 2:

Day 7 – One last synopsis edit. Submit first 3k words and synopsis to Curtis Brown Creative. Brainstorm Christmas 2023 mystery.

Day 9 – Heavy work schedule, but managed to finish the villain segment. Yes, I gave up a lot of activities, but not work. They do not work, they shall not eat.
