As everyone else is thinking about the holidays, all I'm thinking about is finishing MAKING IT WRITE. It seems like every year at this time I am rushing to finish a manuscript.
Disneyland finally got back something sort of like the annual passes, only they are more expensive and you have to make an advance reservation, which seem to run out quickly. My son handles the reservations and got us two within a couple weeks of each other. He went on rides, I sat editing my manuscript. I bring a hard copy and write notes.
I'm going to Chicago to get away from all the interruptions so that I can totally focus on finishing. I could do was with some time alone, too.
When I was there last, it was fall and the time hadn't changed. The weather predictions still sound mild, with rain instead of snow, but by 3:30 the light is already fading.
Last year at this time, I thought we would long be done with masks by now. But here we are. They don't even look strange to me anymore as they used to. I haven't included mask wearing in any of the books I've worked on this year. Now, I'm beginning to wonder. Will they ever go away?
