You know, the word VACATION has the root word VACATE.
I have currently vacated...my brain.
Except you know what, yes I give myself days off, but mostly not. Mostly I plan to write 1000 words a day everyday of my vacation. I don't even think it'll be hard because I am right now powering through the black moment, the ending explosion, the wild, exciting (My Opinion, okay!) ending of my current work in progress.
When I sit down to write my 1000 words it's going FAST.
I know exactly what I intend to do. I've got a clear vision of the GRAND FINALE!
It's really a fun action scene, fighting for life and death, hanging from the cliff, you know, the usual. But I'm having fun writing this so I suspect if I get the laptop open, the book document open, I'll just zip through those 1000 words.
So I'm playing all day as hard as I can. Surrounded by lake water and boats and grandkids.
And even with that, yep. I plan of writing my 1000 words. If I fail a few days (which I definitely do on occasion) that's where I grant myself forgiveness. And the next day go right back to work.
So a quiet little blog. I'll give away a couple of copies of A Man with a Past to try and earn YOUR forgiveness for my little advice column today.
Do you take days off? Does work meets vacation ruin both?
Leave a comment to get your name in the drawing for a signed copy of A Man with a Past.
Falcon Hunt awakens without a past, or at least not one he can recall. He's got brothers he can't remember, and he's interested in the prettiest woman in the area, Cheyenne. Only trouble is, a few flashes of memory make Falcon wonder if he's already married. He can't imagine abandoning a wife. But his pa did just that--twice. When Falcon claims his inheritance in the West, Cheyenne is cut out of the ranch she was raised on, leaving her bitter and angry. And then Falcon kisses her, adding confusion and attraction to the mix.
Soon it's clear someone is gunning for the Hunt brothers. When one of his brothers is shot, Falcon and Cheyenne set out to find who attacked him. They encounter rustled cattle, traitorous cowhands, a missing woman, and outlaws that take all their savvy to overcome. As love grows between these two independent people, Falcon must piece together his past if they're to have any chance at a future.
