Break Time!

Hey! How's it going?

Asides from the shitty weather we're having in Sydney at the moment, we're enjoying a nice break. A lovely time with hubby. But man, I'm SO ready for the rain to go away. I need some sunshine in my life, because a couple of glimpses during the week is not enough. 🌞

I swear, it feels like we're in the middle of autumn instead of spring. Ugh. At least daylight savings started last weekend, so bring on the longer days. (Sorry vamps.)

Speaking of last weekend... I spent a rainy Sunday proofreading the short story I was working on last week. I even finished, polished and subbed my macabre tale about skulls, love and death. The anthology is a total longshot, but this shortie--3,997 words--fit the theme, so I think it's was worth taking a chance.

It's exciting and scary. Not just because I submitted it to a very cool anthology, but because this is a story I'd had in my head for a few months. And when it all came together in a rush of inspiration, it was very exciting.

Now I'm free to go through my Idea Files and decide what to work on next, because NaNoWriMo is just around the corner. The fact I got a few new ideas this week doesn't help. There are just so many possibilities...

But no writing right now. We're having such a great time sleeping in, relaxing and going on adventures. We've gone into the city several times, have gone on heaps of long walks everywhere, went to several thrift stores, picked up a bunch of bargains, and are just having an awesome time.

We're not about to let a bit of rain ruin our time off together. And we've got another week left. 😄

Have a great weekend!
