The Yays Have It

Lots going on of late. Here's the Reader's Digest version:

1.) My hours at work have changed. My special project is over, but instead of going back to 20 hours/week, my boss found a way to bump me to 32 hours/week. My raise/promotion hasn't kicked in yet, however, so I'll be taking a pay cut till it does. In the meantime, I'm now working longer hours on certain days of the week, but shorter hours on others, which means I'll actually have time to write on those afternoons. Yay!

2.) My husband got me a laptop for my birthday. Also yay! Since I've got an hour for lunch at work, I've been taking it in with me so I can write after I've eaten. Did two pages yesterday in half an hour. More yay!

3.) I've picked up on a story idea I started back in November and am running with it. Taking a cue from my dear friend Carrie on character development, I've "cast" the two major leads and selected photos of them that evoke my hero and heroine. Very effective. Yay!

4.) The boundaryless idiot to whom I had to deliver a verbal smackdown last year is no longer working as a contractor for my company! Very relieved yay!!

Okay, so, I sound like a cheerleader. 'Bout bloody damn time. Now where'd I put those pom-pons?

You said 2009 was going to be a better year. I totally believe you.

Do I get to know who the leads are? And you used the right spelling of pom-pons!

You had msot of your pom-pons surgically removed, remember?
