The hubby has gone away on a scuba diving weekend. I was going to go along (to be sociable) and while he and his buddies were off diving, I'd have a lovely hotel room to myself for writing projects. Then! The buddy that was going to ride with us pointed out that we only had a car and he had an SUV and he could get more 'stuff' in his vehicle. At which point the hubby kindly offered that if I didn't want to go, I didn't have to. I faintly protested that, no, I'd be glad to ride along, not a problem. He reiterated the you-don't-have-to and I graciously took him up on it! FTW! (Brer Rabbit has nothing on me!)
And. Those of you who know me, know that I'm a kinda-primary caretaker for my elderly dad. He needs help to get in and out of bed daily and I take him to church on Sundays. Well, with the original plans to go away for the weekend, I had already booked the additional helpers we have to cover my 'shifts' this weekend. And shame on me if I take away earning opportunities for the two lovely women who help me and my sister with dad.
So. No one but you and the folk I work with even know I'm home this weekend. Friday through Sunday evening.... I have just returned from some much needed car maintenance (cleaning, oil change and tire rotation) and a bit of shopping (hey! one needs that daily ration of ice cream and we were out!) and now... a full 48 hours of nothing planned but writing.
And it's much needed writing time. I have a Reverse!Bang that is due on June 19 that is short only about 8500 words. (only!) I have the story in my head, just need to get it out. Then turns out I forgot I had signed up for casestory for which I have 2/3 kinda written and kinda mapped out but that's due in early July. And a Severus/Harry Potter Big Bang which is due August 1 for which I have 8500 words and an outline (an actual outline! how did that happen!) And I have the atlantisbigbang that's also partially written and also due in mid-August.
But I hear Karamel Sutra calling....
::resists:: When I finish another 1500 words, then I can have ice cream! The New York super fundge Chunk has to wait until the Reverse Bang is at least on paper... that's the incentive!
