Last post of the week

I know. It is only Thursday but I have a busy three days coming up. Doctors appointment tomorrow to see if my cholesterol meds are working or if I should give up and start eating bacon and eggs again, and after that I get to go to an antique walk, which is just awesome. They actually fill in an entire town with antiques and you just walk through buying stuff. Good times. On Saturday, my lovely wife and I get to go out, without the kids, and we may even take in a movie. Which leaves Sunday which is Father's day and I will probably end up working around the house.

In the meantime, the children cooperated this morning and gave me enough time to put about 1300 words on paper and push my manuscript over 18K. This made me happy. :)I really have to get a working title on it other than Book, which is how it is listed in my files. Everything else I come up with sounds so generic and book is as good as any of them, so for now Book it is. I have never had so many subplots that are viable to a story to try to fit into a manuscript. It is rather exciting.

Well, so much for the alone time. One child is now up. Sorry to bore you with the minutia of my life. Have a great rest of the week. :)

Subplots are the stuff. Hope the Doc's appt. goes well. Enjoy the weekend and the movie, and happy Dad's day.

I bought my dad his father's day gift months ago, and gave it to him when he visited MO. He promptly forgot to pack it ; )

Aaron, I am really enjoying them right now. You have a great Dad's day as well.

Nat, it was the thought that counts. Right?

Repeat after me: Sunday is not Father's Day it's Cate's Day. Thank you. I need to have a word with the schedulers.

Oh and woot for the 18k.

I am burning with envy about the antique walk. We don't have anything like that over here. Have fun!

Cate, I think that is between you and the Hallmark card company. I was pretty stoked about that 18K myself. Bad things are about to happen to a main character, which will bring about even worse things for another character. :)

Danielle, It is in a small town of about 800 people and their entire economy is centered around antiques. They will bring in an extra 300 antique dealers for this event.

Good luck with the doc-- subplots are tastier than bacon and eggs any day!
