This weekend is Fall Break which means no school for the kiddos on Friday or Monday. What a perfect time to sneak in a little beach trip!
I am fortunate enough to have a generous aunt with an empty beach condo this weekend, so we're heading down this afternoon. My poor husband is in the financial biz, and I think it will be good for him to be out of the office for a couple of days (although, he's a little worried about being gone right now . . . okay, he's a LOT worried, but we will have telephones and wi-fi). My dad will also be there with his boat, and he says the redfish are biting.
I know I'm probably being a little too hopeful in thinking of doing some writing this weekend, but I'm going to try. I'm still working on my WIP with the help of Scrivener. By putting synopses of each chapter on notecards and getting to stand back and look at my work as a whole, I have discovered tons of plot holes. But, I think I've found a really cool way to fill these holes, and I've been doing lots of strange, kooky ebay research. My favorite thing about Scrivener is that I can look at my research file--pictures, text, web pages--in split screen while I'm typing my manuscript. No more back and forth clicking between different files and bookmarks--it's really cool.
I think Katie's even a convert to the Scrivener way of writing . . .
