[Insert clever Hump Day Title here.]

In case you didn't notice, I forgot to post last week. Well, not so much forgot as just didn't do it. Um, sorry.

And this week I'm only popping in to say toodles, because this coming weekend we're heading for the sunny beaches down Florida way to visit our kiddos. (Yay!)

Think I'll find something like this waiting for me there?



Alas, probably not. But a girl can dream. 

If I've been scarce, it's because I'm woefully behind where I'd hoped to be by now with The Big Fix, and I'm nose to the proverbial grindstone trying to bank enough wordage that I'll be able to kick back and relax while I'm on vacay. Nothing spoils a good umbrella drink like visions of deadlines performing the Danse Macabre in your head.

But don't worry about me leaving town--you'll never even know I'm gone. I finally succumbed the lure of the smartphone, and am actually learning how to navigate cyberspace via this extraordinary time waster device. 

You realize what this means, don't you?  

Linda + Umbrella Drink + Smartphone = Internet Disaster Waiting to Happen

So, what's been going on in your world while I've hanging out in Ciel's?

I agree with Delia. Mentally I just might follow you while physically I'll have to stay here and take care of sick kids.

P.S. Have fun on the vacay!

Delia -- Hop in! Just don't blame me if the TSA guys get frisky with you. ;)

S.P. -- I will be sure to down a few virtual drinks for your mental self. Hope your kids feel better soon! :)

Jennifer -- Thanks! That's the plan. :D

LOL! Love the equation, and look forward to you making drunken posts and blaming your misspellings on the phone!!

You know what I've been doing: Wrangling the beginning of a new school year while -- like you -- trying to write a series of books where each one is in a different stage of development ...

Have a super vacation, but don't forget the sun block! No smart phone for me. Matter of fact, no cell phone for me at all. (But I especially don't like the idea of a show-off phone that's smarter than I am.)

That does not look like a happy camel. That looks like a long-suffering, put-upon camel. So if you find him down in FLorida at the beach, and after you've had a few of those umbrella drinks, and if you can manage it when no one's looking...I think you ought to set him free.

Have a great break!

Oh boy, do I know the "hit the word count so I can relax" feeling! And I don't even have an agent or publisher - I do this to myself!

Anyway, relax, ditch the word count worries and try to have fun!

I've just been looking for ways to kill time until 'I' can spend more time in Ciel's world.

Hope you've found a tiki hut or two on those lovely beaches! See you when you're back here. Or while you're wasting time on FB :)

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Thank you sooooooo much for the terrific review on Amazon! I really appreciate it.

Hi. I'm just getting back but you seem to be off enjoying beaches and camels. Or beaches without camels.

See you when you get back.
