Just wanted to send out a quick update. I’ve been doing very well at writing Detective Florence recently. In two days I have written 10,000 words. 5,000 each day.
I tried to write this morning, but I didn’t even write 1,000 words today (although I did get up to 71,000 total) and I think part of that is because of Christmas.
Every Christmas Eve my family and I go to church, come home and eat dinner, watch a Christmas movie, then we open presents from each other. Then, of course, we open the presents from Santa on Christmas morning.
We’re doing things a little differently this year as my sister is moved out and engaged. So she and her fiance will be joining us and they’ll have a lot of presents to open because Santa came early for them as they won’t be here tomorrow morning opening Santa gifts with the rest of us, but they will be here later in the afternoon. My mom’s side always comes over on Christmas while my dad’s side comes over the Saturday before Christmas.
Anyway, I tried to write, but couldn’t because I am just so excited. I barely did anything today in anticipation for tonight and tomorrow. I feel like a little kid and whereas I know the truth, the Christmas magic is still there for me.
Let me just end with this: This day has been going by really slow.
Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!
