I finally had a breakthrough!  So that was exciting.  It wasn't writer's block so much as writer's ennui, which always happens.  You just have to power through it.

Thanksgiving was fine, if eh.  It's like my least favorite of all the major holidays, mostly because it doesn't even feel like a holiday.  I finally had to turn off the TV last night because all of the Black Friday ads were making me queasy.  So I came down, snuggled down in my writing armchair, and wrote for about two hours, and it was quite lovely.  Also lovely yesterday was the extraordinary weather; we went for a walk at the park after eating, and it was much, much better than lounging around watching football no one cares about feeling bilious, or taking a nap.

My goal today is to finish the chapter I'm working on, then finish the act I'm on in The Fall.  I want to finish the craft project I'm in the middle of, and maybe clean out my car.  (I say I'm going to clean out my car every weekend, LOL.)  I most definitely do not plan on going anywhere or shopping or any of that.  I might see if there are any good online deals, but I doubt it.

At approximately 1pm, I am going to make some hot chocolate.

Always good to have a clear plan. *nods sagely*

Congrats on your breakthrough!

I, um, didn't have hot chocolate yesterday. I made a command decision of No More Sugar after I had leftover lemon cheesecake for lunch.

Well, it's also good to keep your master plan flexible. ;)

Fall weather is the best. It looks like it might be overcast and super-windy today, though, so I might forgo a walk and just cuddle up with a book. That's awesome, too.

Absolutely! I work every fifth weekend, so odds are if there's a weekend that works for you, it'll work for me, too. Just let me know. :D

Glad you are doing well with your writing! Hope you have a relaxing and productive friday :)

Thanks! My Friday wasn't quite as productive as I would have liked, unless you count playing three hours of Civilization as being productive. ;)

*woot* for the breakthrough!

I didn't feel like on holiday much either when I was in the US on Thanksgiving. My host family wasn't doing it in a real family oriented manner either, because the kids had to sit on a seperate table and well the guys were all watching the game. I didn't really get why you need a holiday for something like thatXD
