In reality, I haven't had much of a holiday. People like to go to the movies when they're off work, so I've actually been quite busy. And because of that, I've had about 5 or 6 days away from my WIP. Tonight I decided it was time to get back into it. I'm going away on the 14th, and I really want to be finished with this draft by the time I go. Then I can relax and enjoy my vacation without thinking about the plot twist in chapter 13 and how it might change things in chapter 27...
I think I can do it. I'm about half-way through chapter 28 now, and will hopefully be able to finish that one tomorrow. My old draft is 32 chapters long, but I think this one is going to be a little longer - maybe 34 or 35. But there are a couple of chapters in there that aren't going to need a massive amount of rewriting - not like Chapter 28 which is all new material.
So I think I can get done by the 14th. I hope I can get done by the 14th. Then when I get back from my week at the beach, I can start working on one of the two new projects I have in mind. They're so pretty, so shiny.... I know I'll still need to tweak Boyfriend a little more, but it will be nice to work on something new. I've been working on The Boyfriend Plague since June, pretty much non-stop.
What are your post-holiday goals? Do you have something that's kicking you into gear to get going?
