Happy Canada Day!

What I enjoy most about Canada Day is all the blissful silence I get for writing, since no one else has to get up to go anywhere today. I can't sleep in, since I have some kind of built in alarm clock that wakes me up with the robins (or maybe it is the robins that wake me up). I love the early morning peacefulness. I get my best writing ideas before a lot of other stuff crowds into my brain. 

A quick update on my novel draft:  I'm still working on it. I didn't meet my "end of June" goal (but I did have fun celebrating the end of the school year with some coworkers). It's probably going to take me another week to get my WIP finished, which is still amazing for me, since I only thought up the idea for this story in March.

If you're celebrating, Happy Canada Day! I hope you get time to do something you enjoy!


  1. Congratulations on being so close to the end of your WIP. Happy Canada Day!

  2. Alas, no Canada Day here in the U.S. I do have Monday, July 5th off in honor of Independence Day. I think I'll designate it as a quiet writing day and give myself permission to tell everyone else to leave me in peace.

    Good luck finishing your draft!

  3. Happy Canada Day! Good luck finishing up your WIP.

  4. Congratulations on being so near to the end of a draft. That's really exciting!

  5. Happy Belated Canada Day! Glad you're making good progress on your WIP.

    I left an award for you on my blog. You should come and check it out! :)

  6. I really appreciate your encouragement - it helps keep me going! I did a lot of writing yesterday, and I'm about 4 chapters from the end.

    Karen, that's so sweet! Thank you!
