So, as I previously mentioned, I received a promotion about six weeks ago. It was something I was working hard to achieve and a promotion that I REALLY wanted before the busy Christmas Season.
Well, you know how they say, “be careful what you wish for….” So true.
While getting a nice promotion before the Holidays can be a blessing, when it comes to retail…it can be a bit scary.
I love the extra responsibility and feel comfortable in the new role, but I feel so driven to succeed and thrive in this position that I am turning into a bit of an unlikely workaholic. I don’t think I left work on time in ALL of last week, and I spend much more time off now answering questions or even just talking about my job.
Today is my Saturday (I scored today AND tomorrow off) and I am thrilled to have some rest before the busy holiday season, but I can’t help but feel that I am needed at work. That is probably just the control freak in me.
I also PROMISED myself some time today to catch up on my novel. I am falling seriously behind, and even more than last year, I want to finish this challenge. Just gotta make the time.
I have started the morning with 650 words, but I know that is not nearly enough. I need to clear 5000 before lunch, and maybe an additional 2000 before we head out to the valley to help our friend celebrate his birthday.
Oh, you want a quick synopsis. It is not NEARLY as detailed as the one I posted on my book last year, but you get the idea.
“A ragtag group of adventurers must stop a growing threat to their lands, or risk the destruction of that which they hold dear. Though strangers at first, the group must band together to fight the most devastating hoard that any have encountered.”
Also, this book is set in a made up land of my own creation!
Alright, I poured myself a cup of brain food (in a TARDIS mug….helps me think) and I am ready to knock out a few thousand words!
Wish me luck!
