Three Days, Three Chapters

It was a three day weekend for me.  Normally I would be thrilled to have three days off work but my time off lately has been stressful.  My middle daughter's birthday was today and we had a good time even though it snowed a lot.  It was supposed to be a full weekend with a lot of stuff going on. 

I didn't expect to get a lot of writing done this weekend.  However, I got three chapters written.  They are longer chapters but there is no good splitting point.  So I'm leaving them as longer chapters for now.  It's funny how I'll finish a chapter and think wow that is good.  When I try to start the next chapter, I decide I need to think on it for a bit.  I go away and do different things like sleep or whatever.

This weekend we saw the King's Speech - great movie - go see it.  After spending the day on Saturday hanging out with a friend, daughter, and hubby, I was able to finish off a chapter.  It felt good and worked out well.  Sunday I was supposed to meet up with my artist but she couldn't come out.  I took the time to write and finished off another chapter.  This morning I was supposed to have the morning to myself to write and I sort of did.  I got a good start on my chapter before Vicki and I wandered off on our day.  We had a great day.  It was fun to hang out with her and spoil her a bit. 

After supper tonight, Ken went to bed, Vicki watched her show on TV and I wrote.  I stumbled a bit trying to get the feel for one particular character.  I ended up reading some of my earlier scenes with her.  After I did that I knew how to write what I needed to do.  I finished off another chapter tonight. 

Maybe I'm finding a bit of balance in my life?  I'm not going to hold my breath on that though.  It's only 11 and I'm headed for bed.  It's been a better weekend than I expected and now it is time to go back to work.

It was a good weekend.  Friday I left work to go to the doctor with Vicki.  We were forceful about her needing a different antibiotic.  She ...
