Friday five - the five best ways to spend a holiday Friday
2. Once it warms up a bit, I'll go for a walk on the beach, a big long walk. I'll enjoy the sound of the waves, the feel of the salt air on my face, the people and the dogs passing me (this picture is part of my walk). I'll end up at Denman Street and stop into a restaurant and pick up take out - Thai or Chinese or Persian or Greek or Malaysian or... - for dinner.
3. I have extra writing time. I'm almost finished - twenty pages or so away from the end of a novella, and I can finish it today.
4. Sleeping in. I usually force myself to get up at 6:00 or 6:30, so I have some writing time before anything else happens. Today I woke up at 7:30, wrote a chapter, had a shower, then breakfast with my partner. He's off to the gym now and I'm going back to writing.
5. I had time to think about the beginning - okay, not the beginning but the basics - of the next novella I'm going to write. I've got enough to start my subconscious working on the beginning of the story, which means by the time I get back from my long walk, I'll be ready to start the next novella.
I LOVE having that extra day off!
