Update: Still here...


Celebrate (v): 1. to observe (a day) or commemorate (an event) with ceremonies or festivities: to celebrate Christmas; to celebrate the success of a new play.

First off, Happy Victoria's Day to my fellow Canadians! Hope you all have a blast and beautiful weather like we do. It truly feels like August out here in Cambridge. We're having a picnic in the backyard today with the kids, a water balloon throwing contest and some fireworks for the evening:) The munchkins are excited.

The past few weeks had been very busy for me. I'm almost done the sequel for Two Halves (I've been almost done for a month), and can't really do anything until I finish. I mean anything. This book has consumed me (in a good way). I have one more week to get it out to my editor. I've been writing/editing. I have it all done, except for the last paragraph - that perfect line. That's what I hope to do over the next couple of days.

The perfect ending is already there, just that one line/paragraph to finish it off. On top of it all, I've been re-editing some of my other work, but more on that soon.

That being said, I've been pretty absent from the blog. I haven't ignored everyone else though. I read your blogs, just don't comment. I know that's not nice and I do fell extremely guilty about it. But, after writing/editing all day, it's just become exhausting to do anything, other than read.

So even if it doesn't seem like I'm here, I am, and when all done, I'll need to throw one big party on my blog to celebrate and get back to the schedule.  Until then, dear blog, please bear with me. I will be back and tell you all about the wonderful schedule I'd had the past month *sarcasm*. Perhaps I won't - just came up with a great idea for next Monday's post and it's much better than talking about my schedule:)

Happy Victoria Day!

Are you as busy as I am? How do you prioritize?

I hope that perfect line comes to you soon!

Don't feel guilty about reading but not commenting. Blogs can use up all that time you should be using to write... I know, I'm on the wrong side of the line at the moment!

Happy Victoria Day to you too!

Evalina, This and that...

Happy Victoria Day
Writing and editing is important.

I can't however give any advice for prioritizing. Lately I've been failing at it, lol.

Good luck with that perfect line. Yep, I am on serious deadline, too. It's tough to prioritize. :)

Just dropping in from CQG's Friday Bloffee. Hello to a fellow Canadian :)

Is Victoria Day celebrated across Canada? I know it is here in BC but as I live in Victoria it just seemed natural. I never thought about whether it was celebrated outside of BC. Anyway, hope you had a good day.
