I am. Need me some word count.  Anyone else crazy/pathetic/boring like me?  :D

Yes! Told my family that I have to work ... but not on what :)  Will finish the final draft/edit this weekend. WILL!

This is how I hope to spend my weekend but we'll see how it goes. If I get a lot of new cover orders in, I'll do those and the writing will get put off.

This was my plan, but now I'm feeling guilty about not going to the family cottage. This is when we put out the dock/clean/put the boat in, etc. I feel like a jerk if I don't help. We shall see if guilt or my writing desire win out:)

I wasn't aware that Memorial Day was even this time of the year.  :D

We never do anything for it, so it comes and passes without attracting my notice. I'll probably just put in my normal amount of writing since I'll have to work it.

Yes..crazy/pathetic/boring...I'm all those things and more...LOL  I was rummaging around last night and found an old short story that I had written years ago.  I'd forgotten all about it.  I still think it has potential as a sci-fi type drama so I'm going to play with it this weekend.  Holidays! Bah! Who needs them?  ;D

Holidays just mean a little time and a half pay for me. My place of employment is open every day of the year, 24 hours a day.

Not this time, but I know the feeling all too well. I just finished one big project and am waiting for the co-author to finish the last few chapters of the next project on my to-do list (second draft is mine). So for once I don't have any heavy writing planned for the holiday weekend.

But omigosh, every 3-day weekend or random "stay-cation" that I don't have other commitments is so precious to me. Of course I write nearly every day for a few hours, but being able to indulge in a gluttony of 8 or 12 or 16 hours of writing for a couple days in a row is so nice - relaxing, invigorating, and (almost always) super productive. I hear the burnout doesn't *really* kick in until 12-hour day #9. *smirk*

So by all means, do it when you have the chance. I hope you get lots of writing done!

And it shows. You are getting such well deserved success and are becoming quite an inspiration to us. :)

NEVER!!
This is the job. Writing. You do it when you have the time and if "the time" happens to be a big Holiday weekend then that's when you do it!

I personally am not fond of holidays. EVERYONE is out there. So crowded and hurried and crushing.
But in my home writing space, it's just me and my characters.

And I write......

That's my intention. I have maybe 10-15k words I want to get done between now and the end of Monday - we work Saturday which is a bummer but I'm still hoping Sunday and Monday both can be like my last few weekends (the last two Sundays I've written 4-6k each). :D That would be the last push on this novel then I can set it aside and start outlining my YA desert adventure. ;)
