Everyone I know is going back to work today. I am staying at home, having taken a two extra weeks of leave this holiday season, and it feels utterly decadent to know that I’m still fifteen days away from my return to the day-job. On the other hand, the lack of regular work schedule has meant that I don’t do my grocery shopping on a regular schedule, and I am now out of coffee. It’s all swings and roundabouts in the end.
I have hit the scene on the current work in progress where it would be really useful to know what’s going on, so I’ve spent the morning writing little page-long myths and legends about the characters in the novel so their back-story is fleshed out enough to give me something to work with.
Now I shall do grocery shopping, ’cause the need for coffee is pressing.
