I'm Baaaack.......I'm Broke.....

I had a fantastic vacation in Milwaukee, saw lots of friends and got lots of hugs. I spent a wonderful extended afternoon/evening with Zhie and her DH talking Tolkien and other things and Tolkien and writing and Tolkien and research and Tolkien. Basically SO much fun. I walked a ton and ate a lot of food that was everything BUT good for me (time to get back on my diet and eat regular food again) and I attended events and meetings and more. In other words - it was a glorious, highly-packed four days.

I did get a lot of writing done. I had my laptop and got some intense writing done in my hotel room, but I also had my NookColor and great WiFi most places, so I used that a lot and got tons of writing done that way. I had barely started my LOTR Community story for June (due in a few days) and wrote the entire thing on my NookColor while bopping between hotel lobbies and the Convention Center sales floor. It still needs heavy editing, but that's OK. The words are down and the story is complete, it just needs refining - a lot of it.

I still downloaded and worked through my class lessons for my Creative Writing course, and I also worked on my Ardor in August piece a bit, although I admit that my energies were spread in a lot of different directions. My classes were so fun! I'll talk more about them tomorrow or later in the week, and the drive to and fro was great because I was listening to Lynn Flewelling's "Luck in the Shadows" audio book. I don't think that drive has gone so quickly in years. I'm afraid to look at my credit card balance, but have to get some paid on that account by mid-week so I'll have to. I know I spent too much, but I'm already planning to go next year - it's just too much fun not to go. Call me happy....
