The Down And Dirty

I'm back from the beach. Had a great time. Weather was even somewhat nice. Saturday there was a break in the rain. I took a nice long walk up the beach, and it was even wind-free! Almost unheard of this time of year on the Oregon Coast. There were nine of us total. We chatted, worked, ate, chatted more, worked, worked, worked, laughed and had a fairly relaxing weekend.


This is me working:

I look semi-productive, don't I? HA!!! I got nothing done! Gah. Talk about frustrating. My WIP is driving me loco. I won't bore you with details here, but if you're interested, I whined about it (and am seeking advice) over at Romance Worth Killing For.

And this is me realizing I was getting crap done:

Pretty, huh? Yeah. That's basically how I felt all weekend. Like tearing my hair out at the roots. I did manage to take my frustrations out on the ping-pong table (and Lisa and Piper). I have a feeling they don't want to play ping-pong again with me anytime soon.

How was your weekend? Anyone more productive than moi????

I love the pics. I'm such a good photographer :-) You need to send me the group one missy!

I think I got ALL your productivity! Saturday I worked for most of the day. Yesterday I spent 12 hours on my manuscript and the only reason I stopped was I had to go to bed for work today!

At least you got to relax and enjoy ping-pong.

Blogger Piper Lee said...

Yeah, Lisa, you're a good photographer, except I took those particular shots darlin. So there.

The weekend was great being with you girls and chatting and trying to be productive (except we weren't). The ping-pong games were awesome. I think Lisa was the best player. That was great chatting and girlfriend time. You two are awesome friends! I wubbs you two!

Saturday was incredibly productive for me.

Those are great pics! You need to send them to Genene for the newsletter. Sorry you didn't get much accomplished since you were one of the people who really wanted this writing weekend.

I didn't get as much as I wanted done, but had a great time.

You'll get the book figured out and then wonder why it didn't click sooner.

LOL. Yeah, I think Piper took those pictures - since, Lisa, that's your laptop in the lower right-hand corner of picture one. ;)

Way to go on the productivity Christine and TJ! Feels great, doesn't it?

And Paty, no way I'm sending pictures to Genene. She'll KEEP them! LOL

Lol, I must have those shots on my camera then because I took some too.

I'm jealous that you guys all got together to take pictures. LOL. On Saturday, I went to a Murder and Mayhem day at a local library, with a line-up of great mystery and thriller writers, including John Connelly (who's cute and has an Irish accent), J.A. Konrath (who's funny), and Tess Gerritsen (who's fabulous). On Sunday, I saw Stranger Than Fiction. I really enjoyed it.

I did get some writing in, but the total weekend was about writers. That counts, doesn't it?

Eli, great pics and thanks for sharing! I'm with Edie, I'm jealous. When you buy a huge beach house you can invite Edie and I so we can take pics too. lol
