Life Roulette

ACK! Okay, let's play "what's going on in Heather's life" vol. [something, or other].

BRANSON, MO

As previously mentioned, my in-laws were in town so we took a few days to visit Branson.

Um.

I know a lot of people who vacation there. Meaning: It's their yearly vacation, there and only there. That made me expect some sort of spectacular place. Basically, it was a tourist trap. One I enjoyed, but still... not so much a "vacation destination." ha.

We did a lot of shopping:




Who needs zombie blood? Raise your hand. Now I know where to get it. Gonna stock up for the inevitable zombie apocalypse!

We also went to see Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede. Holler! haha.

Seriously, Dixie Stampede was fun. Though they were all crotchety about taking photos inside. Bummer.


END OF SUMMER

Summer is going to be over soon. #PRAISETHELORD

Are all the kids going nuts, or is it just mine? They've lost their minds. And, in turn, have made me question my sanity.

So, yeah. GET THEM BACK TO SCHOOL. Mom needs a break. Love you kids, but you gotta go.


WRITING

This is what I've been doing with my time (I haven't even tackled laundry this week). I'm at the point in this book where I'm so frustrated that I had to stop, take a day off (have a good cry about it, etc.) and come back to it fresh.

Maybe this my creative process and no one else can relate to this, but here it is:

There comes a point when the book is "almost done," where it seems so close and yet so far away. Where I look at the book and it doesn't seem at all how I planed it. Where I have to believe that the threads I put in place will work, because if I have to start this book from scratch for a FOURTH time I may not make it. ---

Sigh. It's moving along.

  1. Oh, my. Someone has a serious bacon obsession. They would have to in order to manufacture so much bacon gear. The zombie blood on the other hand? So many uses for that - starting with Halloween.

    And I so know what you mean by hitting that point in your book where the ending seems so close yet so far, and you're afraid that the book won't work at all and that you can't possibly tie up all those threads. That's the point where I go back and completely re-plot the last few chapters, because the book has changed direction so many times. Good luck!

  2. I'm feeling a little like a zombie today. I should have bought some.
