Random Bits of Friday

Early Friday morning. An overpriced hotel room in northern California. Bleary eyes, no coffee. Yet.

  • I get to fly home this afternoon. This week has kicked my butt, both literally and actually--getting up super early every morning has meant that there is coffee flowing in my veins, but I also ran into the bedframe on my first night in my hotel room, giving myself what may be my most impressive bruise ever on my leg. It's still hot to the touch, four days later. Bella Swan ain't got nothing on me.
  • I don't know if it's the exhaustion or if it's the hotel room, but the mad revisions I was planning to do in the evenings here did not get done. No whining--it is what it is.
  • Tomorrow, my dear husband is flying to Turkey for a conference. I was almost going to go with him, since, as you may know, this is also where he is from and so we would get to visit his family. Alas, there were too many complications with a trip this last-minute, so I will be staying home with the cat.
  • WRITING CAVE AT MY HOUSE THIS WEEKEND! WOO!
  • I have at least three little notebooks that I have bought or been given with the purpose of always having them nearby to scribble down notes. And where are they? Stashed somewhere in my house. Which means that my revision notes show up on the backs of envelopes and receipts, and on a wide assortment of hotel stationary.
What I wanted to post was a shot of my crazy bruise, but that might be weird.
Happy Friday everyone! Have a good weekend!

  1. Mmmm... I have the same problem. I always lose the notebooks that I mean to keep with me at all times. :/

  4. I used to have a notebook at the office for sudden burts of inspiration but now I just send mysef emails with bits of dialogue and revision notes. It's easier to pass it off as 'work.' lol
    Good luck with your revisions and take care of that bruise!
