And what am I thinking about? My new job? Christmas? No. My brain is focusing on the anticipation of trying out a new genre in my writing.
I have written two picture book manuscripts and while they are off making their rounds, I will be happily diving into writing a middle grade novel for the first time. I've taken a few weeks' hiatus from writing to get settled at my new job and prepare for the holidays, but I actually can hardly wait for December 26th, when I will either haul all the holiday decorations back into storage or start outlining in a genre that is new to me (both possibilities are almost equally attractive to me - weird, I know).
In the two weeks I have been ignoring my writing, I already feel I have gotten rusty in my writing and plotting. I can't wait to dive back in!
In the meantime, I'll leave you with two funnies from Debbie Ridpath Ohi (love her!). They about sum it up for me.
