It's a gorgeous Canada Day here in Montreal -- and I have no special plans, except to work on my manuscript. Ahhh! I'm still rereading and making adjustments. Today, I'm thinking what I've done so far is pretty darned good. I've been in this business long enough to know that I should savour this feeling -- there are lots of times when I'm dissatsified with what I've written, when nothing feels right.
My husband has been away in New York, visiting family, so I've had lots of time to focus on work the last few days. Hey, I don't think I told you, but I'm taping a segment for CTV tomorrow. I'm going to recommend five books for summer reading. Of course, I told them I'd like to plug one of MY books, too. I won't have much time to do so, since the whole interview lasts about four minutes!! I don't think the segment will be broadcast for a couple of weeks yet, but I'll keep you posted.
Next week, I'm off to Winnipeg on writing-related business; then the day after I get home from there, Mike and I leave for a holiday in San Francisco. I'm toying with the idea of not working while I'm there. My friends think that's funny. I always work when I'm away. But maybe -- just maybe -- I'll surprise them (and myself). Happy Canada Day to you wherever you are.
Enjoy all of your travelling! It sounds like you're going to be pretty busy for a while.
And though you might not actually work whlie you're on vacation, I wouldn't be surprised if you came back with loads of new story ideas
