Celebrate the Small Things 25/10/13
This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!
So, what am I celebrating this week?
I have a job! I started yesterday as the manager of another art-house cinema in my hometown. It was a tough decision because I was offered another cinema in another city, but at the end of the day, the idea of moving the whole family was just too much. So far, I'm really enjoying it. This cinema has a cafe as well, and it's going to take me a while to get a handle on how everything runs, but I'm sure I'll get it soon. I'm actually excited about the weekend and working on the counter when it's busy.
I've been writing this week. I'm quietly determined to finish my new book before my next round of edits comes back from my publisher. I'm at the climax, so I figure I'm not too far off now. There will be a lot of revising, I know, but there always is. And even when you know that, there's a real sense of achievement that comes from finishing a first draft. No matter how crappy it is.
My oldest son has gone away to stay with a friend of mine for the weekend, so the house is amazingly quiet. Which is so unusual. I'm looking forward to a weekend free of the screams and shouts and fighting that usually fill the house whenever my boys are at home together.
What are you celebrating this week?
