I'm happily retreating down to the island this weekend for a couple of days of writerly focus. The past few weeks/months have been considerably patchy -- here it is May already! I'm supposed to have a revised draft complete by the end of the year. Yikes!
The last thing I wanted was for 2009 to be a repeat of 2008 -- where basically the only times I wrote were down at the island. But unfortunately that's the way it's panned out so far. Need to arrest that trend pronto!
But I do like going down there nonetheless. This weekend I plan to have a toasty fire, with lots of hot chocolate. Mmmm.
