Well, it was a lovely…

Well, it was a lovely Thanksgiving at Kevin's parents' -- turkey with all the trimmings. I'm a sucker for stuffing, and Ann (Kev's mom) made a really good stuffing. I hope you all had wonderful times as well, and are now recovering nicely.

Today started slow, with breakfast and chatting, but now it's afternoon and time to work. I'm finding that I wish I'd brought more work with me -- I'm being surprisingly efficient, and the schoolwork I've brought is almost entirely done, which means that I'll soon be starting at the blank pages of my new book, which is a little terrifying. (I've got about 8500 words so far, about 4500 of which I'm really happy with. Some of the rest may get chopped or simply taken out). Soon I will have to stop simply spewing material and start thinking about coherence, overall themes, etc. This one is going to be (I hope) more than a simple collection of short stories. We'll see how it goes...

Tonight, dinner with my aunt, assuming I can get ahold of her. Then probably tomorrow say goodbye to Kevin at some point and head back up to Oakland -- my high school English teacher is visiting the Bay Area for the holiday, and I'd really like to get in touch with her.

Anyway, I'm just babbling and procrastinating now. Until tomorrow...
