A Productive Weekend!

First off, Happy Canada Day!  Hope all you fellow Canadians had an awesome day…I celebrated with Tim Horton’s, of course!

My MIL came over to help out with the kids, so I was able to catch up on laundry and do some major cooking and then freezing.  DS helped me and rolled out a bunch of meatballs all by himself.  They look slightly crazy, and I wouldn’t say they’re exactly round, but I’m not complaining!  I’ll take the help!

It was also a super productive weekend writing-wise, and I really needed that, coming off last week.  I managed to ‘almost’ finish up the partial and tweak the synopsis for the proposal I’m going to send my editor at Entangled this week.  I’m going to read it over one or two more times and that’s it, then I’m hitting ‘send’.  I’m really excited about this book and at the same time nervous.  It’s set in France and has a lot more glamour than the last three books I’ve turned in.  The last three have all been set in small towns.  This book also has more external conflict than I’m used to, so when I look it over again, I’m going to really try and focus on whether or not I have a good balance.  It feels like there may be too many moving parts to it.  Or that may just be because I usually don’t write this way.  Hmm.  I’ll have to figure that out.

So tomorrow is still a holiday down here.  I’m hoping I’ll be able to get some more writing done before my MIL leaves tomorrow night, so I’ll be in good shape to start the week.  It’s going to be another busy one…
