No time to dilly-dally!


Okay, I really can’t sit still and blog right now… I have more important things to do, like get words on paper as quickly as possible, because last Thursday I had a big revelation as to how to finish up Jethro.  All of the major dots are now connected in my head, and it all works together so beautifully that I can’t believe I didn’t see it before.  I spent most of Thursday night hashing it all out in my head and with Isabelle Santiago, along with generally freaking out about it as much as I could.

Friday I didn’t get much writing done, as it was New Year’s Eve and I had some partying to do (with some extra reason to celebrate!) and I went with my husband and some very good friends to Salt Lake City’s EVE party, where I partook of live music, improv comedy, dancing, fireworks (of course!) and general frivolity.  Also, bounce-houses.  It was a blast, and I really enjoyed it.  Today I had some editing I needed to finish up, so I’ve been doing that most of the day… after sleeping in late to recover from last night.

So, anyhow, a few vital things that need to be said:

1) Welcome to 2011!!! I hope it’s a great year for us both. 😉

2) This novel suddenly seems much more like an eventuality than a possibility, and that’s an amazing feeling.

3) I could never have gotten this far without supportive family and friends.

That about sums it up for now.  I’m off to get my writing in gear!

  1. Breakthroughs like that are a great feeling. Ride the momentum as far as you can.

    I don’t know how you survived New Year’s Eve in Salt Lake. Wasn’t it like zero degrees out there?

    • It was absolutely freezing. The last time we checked the weather (which was around 10:30) it was 7 degrees outside, and it kept dropping… most of it was inside, but that didn’t stop us from walking five blocks to get to one of the events (though we did take the tracks back!)

  2. Hi Lisa! What a fantastic blog and website you have here! AND holy freakin’s mokes your journals are GORGEOUS. Dang you are one talented girl!
