Celebrate the Small Things: First Drafts, Weekends, and True Detective
I haven't participated in this hop for a few weeks now because I've been kind of zoned out when it comes to blogging, but it's nice to jump back in and do a little celebrating. As always, this hop is hosted by Vikki at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. If you'd like to sign up and join the hop, visit Vikki's page here.
My celebrations for this week:
1. I finished the first draft of my Polar Night prequel novella! I know it needs a ton of work like all first drafts do but it felt great to get the basic story down. Since it ties in to the sequel I am planning it was fun to get those pieces in place. I've got the draft printed out and am looking forward to sitting down and scribbling all over it this weekend.
2. I am off work today and have a three day weekend. Yay!
3. I have a new entry in my list of tv obsessions: HBO's True Detective. I absolutely love this show and think everything about it - the writing, acting, directing, cinematography, etc. - is phenomenal. I've never been a fan of Matthew McConnaughey but wow has that changed. I wouldn't be surprised if he takes home both the Oscar and the Emmy this year. I love, love, love this show.
4. I had a great dinner out with a friend this week and managed to control myself and say no to getting a dessert. I've been so sluggish this winter I didn't want to make a total pig of myself so I was pleased I was able to resist the temptation to wolf down all the chocolate in the restaurant. That doesn't happen very often. :D
Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
