A Day Off to WRITE

by | Aug 30, 2011 | Fiction Book Reviews | 10 comments

I can’t remember the last time I had a day off JUST TO WRITE!

The last day off I took to write, two of my kids got sick the night before and were home from school with me.

But today….


I am sitting at the kitchen table staring at an empty house and getting ready to open up a manuscript to DIVE INTO.

FOR. THE. DAY!! (or until 3:30)

It’s my big attempt to get ready for ACFW which happens in THREE WEEKS! I will get to meet CASEY HERRINGSHAW, ANGIE DICKEN, MARY VEE, WENDY MILLER, and SARAH FORGRAVE!! My ALLEY CATS!!!

Did I mention Casey is a FRASIER FINALIST!!

Did I also mention I get to stalk…er…meet RUTH LOGAN HERNE!!!

Anyone else get excited about writing days? I’m feeling very Connealy-esque here. Might have to shoot somebody! 😉

      Hey gals,
      Well, I wrote pretty solid from 11-3 (with a short lunch break/walk break inbetween) and wrote over 3K words. Unfortunately, I left my poor characters at a life-threatening moment. I think I’m gonna have to rescue them tonight, when I have a chance.

      • Casey

        That’s awesome!

    Great job, Pepper! Think I need one of those days, too!
