Weird feeling and empty banks

This is a bit weird.

It's 7.10am on a Monday morning and I'm still sitting in my dressing gown and the dog hasn't been walked. It can only mean one thing.

NO WORK TODAY - HOORAH!

Actually no work for two weeks unless you count tomorrow afternoon when I have to go in to complete the stocktake that I completely forgpt about when I booked these two weeks.

It just feels so odd. I haven't had two days off together since May so the prospect of 15 of the little blighters is mind blowing.

Anyway, sadly I have to report another rejection from Norah since the last time I posted. She had three of my stories and now that the second and third have both been returned all hope lies with story number one which if my memory serves me correctly she has had around two months. But at least you know where you are with a rejection. I much prefer it to the "if you haven't heard from us in so many monaths" approach because even after the deadline has expired I'm still wondering if they might be running a bot behind schedule so maybe there is still hope.

These two weeks won't involve a lot of writing as there are lots of little chores around the house that need to be attended to plus we'll be having a few days away next week but I'm hoping to fit some in. The story banks are running a bit low and need to be refilled.

Enjoy your well earned break!

Have a good rest and clear your mind and house of cobwebs and then come back to your writing refreshed.

It looks as though my wish has been granted as I'm about to have a year off to write. Hopefully I won't need to go back to the day job ever, but I don't want to think about that yet.

Have a great few days, Colette.

Enjoy your weeks off Colette - time to recharge the batteries perhaps?

Colette McCormick said...

Lily - I will enjoy my time off (so far so good) and I nevver let the rejections get me down - I can't afford to or I'd be miserable all of the time.
FP - definitley time to recharge the batteries.

My story banks are running low, too, so here's hoping we both manage to write lots soon.

Incredibly low Suzanne and I don't know about you but there's not much inspiration in my head either.
