Over the last few days, I've been quietly freaking out here at the Chookooloonks house.  I've become rather overwhelmed with the amount of writing I have yet to do in order to meet a few book deadlines.  "I think I'm going to have to check into a hotel for a day or two to just write," I told Marcus, panicked.  "Just go somewhere where I can focus for a few days, and not have to worry about doing anything but write."  Primarily because he just wanted me to calm the hell down, he agreed, and I began to start looking for a cheap hotel nearby where I could hide.

Then two nights ago, I got a voicemail from my friend Beth.  "I've been invited to speak at a spa next week," she said.  "They've offered me full accommodation for two nights, and they said I'm welcome to bring a friend.  Would you like to come?"


After double-checking with Marcus and Alex, and confirming with Beth that it would still be okay for me to come if all I planned on doing is holing up and writing, I decided to take her up on her offer.  And so for the first part of next week, I'll be off, trying to make a dent in these books.  With a little luck, I'll return with many, many pages of first drafts of sections, and maybe a manicure.  Because if I'm particularly productive, I'm thinking I should treat myself to a manicure.

Have a great weekend, everyone.  May your days be very, very sweet.
