Silly me for thinking I'd be all bored and lonely while Mr. A is busy at his conference. I've got WIFI and an entire city to myself!
Well, not an entire city. I'm just proud of myself for navigating the nearby streets of San Francisco ALONE this morning. Without getting lost.
This is no small feat. (Really. I'm the type who needs to hold up her left thumb and forefinger to make the letter "L" so I know which way is left, remember?)
So, yeah. I don't mind being a tagalong-to-the-conference wife. It's a wonderful break from routine and an opportunity to get some solid, uninterrupted writing-and-other-work done.
Like the rest of the slush. Fewer than 50 to go! The trickiest part is that there is now a 3-hour difference between Jodi and me. I keep forgetting that her day is ahead of mine.
(My body also seems to have forgotten that I'm in Pacific time zone now, as I woke up at 4:00 this morning raring to go.)
I'm also pleased to report that my darling Mr. A has put his Authoress-is-afraid-to-touch-it camera in moron mode for me. As in, I can push a button and it takes a picture. (Imagine that.) Funny the things we stress about before a trip. Especially when we're not especially fond of traveling.
So I'm in good shape! My Most Beloved Agent is going to be sending more edit notes at the end of the day to keep me busy, and Jodi and I will soon be making our final decisions on the YA/MG entries. (Have I mentioned I couldn't do this without her?) Same stuff, different location.
AMAZING how a different location gives us fresh perspective!
Hope your week brings you some fresh perspective, too, wherever you are.
