I'm pulling the plug (temporarily)!

Last night I sat down to work on my WIP and in an unexpected burst of inspiration I vomited up an entire chapter.  That's means, according to my outline, I have three (count them, three!) chapters left until I complete the first draft of my WIP. 

Since for me, like for many of you fellow writers, time is at a premium, I'm checking out of the blogosphere for a bit, so I can use every spare minute to pound out those final chapters.  Due to the demands of my enormously pregnant belly and little blond person, I'm not even going to begin to estimate how long before I finish up and can end my unplug.  I'm hoping about a month. If it takes longer than that Baby Boy Paxton will be here and nothing will get done, WIP, blog, nothing. 

I won't be checking into your blogs for a while, but I wanted to let you know I'll miss you all and your wonderful insights into the amazing trip that is writing.  Best of luck with your writing lives and your everyday lives.  Hopefully I'll see you all again in about a month!

P.S. Still haven't heard anything from the agent with my full.  Hopefully I have some good news on that front by the time I return.  To all of you waiting to hear back on a partial or full, I share in your anxiousness.  GOOD LUCK!

Angie, I've heard about many writers who are pulling the plug on their blog for a bit. It can be a huge time suck, and though enjoyable, somewhat distracting from the MS. Good luck on completing your WIP. And hopefully, you DO hear some great news from the agent with your full.

We'll all be right here when you get back. Congratulations on the vomit (I love that word as it pertains to writing). Go you!!! And I hope you hear on the full before Baby Boy Paxton gets here. Nothing like talking to an agent while breast feeding. We'll miss you muchly, get some rest too.

Is either your inspiration or your vomit contagious? I think I need to do some vomiting myself.

Sometimes plug pulling is necessary for sanity! Good luck with the agent search!

Good Luck, Ang. Let me know when you have the WIP edited to your satisfaction and I'll bind it up all pretty like Seeds if you want.

Talk to you later.
