How Does Christmas suddenly become January 21st?

So.. I took some time off over the Holidays to spend time with my family and sorta relax from writing, and the blog.. and everything.

And when I looked at the Calendar today it was January 21st.

When did this happen?  Where did the first 3 weeks of January go?  Did anyone else notice a time warp, or just me?

Anyway.. so I'm back at the grind, a bit.  I've been really playing around with my Sci-Fi, Distopian idea for a while and I think that's going to be my New Year's project.. once I get my First Chapter's all polished and ready to go for the LDStorymakers First Chapter Contest, that is.

I've got 2 entries for the First Chapter Contest.. and I'm trying to get them cleaned up and sparkly new before sending them off. I've got about 3 weeks, so I think I'm OK on time.. but obviously it seems to slip away from me occasionally, (time that is), so I'm trying to be a bit more proactive this time.

Also had a really interesting idea pop up for a new story.. luckily I wrote it down in pretty good detail, cause I honestly can't remember a thing about it right now.. just know that I really liked it at the time, and I spent a good 20 minutes writing down all the important details so I wouldn't forget them all...

.. like I have.

Anyway, I'll post more about that idea, and I'll give some teasers about my new current project, in a few weeks as things get rolling.

It's almost time to hit the grind stone a bit for the build up to LDStorymakers.. I've registered, got my hotel, and just this past weekend booked my flight, (Thank You Southwest for having a huge sale on plane tickets from Washington DC to SLC!!).. so I'm all set, physically.  Just gotta get my mind right and get my stuff ready to pitch.

Good times.. good times.

  1. I don't know where January's disappeared to either! Good luck with LDStorymakers, don't relax into those 3 weeks too much, it'll sneak up on you ever so quickly!

    1. I'm totally down for a writers night out or two.. I'll be staying there at the Hotel from Wed night through Sunday morning, so just pick a time. I've got to soak up all the ambiance I can while I'm there.. it's got to last me another year. :/
