Whew! I finally turned in the completed manuscript for the next Nemesis, Unlimited book to my editor. Which means I’m supposed to be taking the week off. What are the odds that’s going to happen?
I made myself a long to-do list, and I’m slowly ticking things off. I think I don’t really understand the notion of “taking a break.”
I have other projects waiting to be written, but for my own sanity’s sake (and Nico’s sake, too), I’m trying not to write anything other than blogs and tweets for the next week or so. We’ll see how that goes.
One benefit to the time off is that I get to finally do all my holiday baking. I look forward to this time of year because it means I get to indulge my baking habit. Since Nico and I work at home, if I bake anything, we’re the ones who wind up eating it all—which is delicious, but not healthy. Now I get to make cookies and cakes for friends and family. And while the goodies never turn out as perfect as stuff made by, say, this woman:
Nico reminds me that my baked goods are made with love, and that’s all that really matters.
So, if someone gave you a whole week off—what would you do? Be practical and “responsible,” or go wild?
