Yes, I'm on vacation! I'm a little ways into week 2 of a 2 week vacation from designing D&D for Wizards of the coast.
What fun, relaxing activities am I happily engaging? Why, finishing off a novel, the third one in an FR trilogy dealing with aboleths and other Far Realm nasties. Oh yes, I know how to par TAY on my time off.
Seriously though, I have been digging living the life of a "writer" over this last week. Sure, some days are harder than others. Some days I mess around online, updating twitter/facebook, and writing community blog posts when I should be writing. But, everything's coming along great. I'm hitting the daily word count I've set for myself. And even this far in, I'm finding synchronicities and plot easter-eggs I left for myself by purest of accidents which turn out to be exactly the plot twist I wanted all along.
So... back to it!
