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.
