After last Friday's post, many of you have been asking which side won--the writing side or the gardening side. To be honest, I'm not sure either side won, but it's possible one of them might have lost less.
Here's the deal. I stayed up late on Friday night working on the manuscript, (yay!) then got up early the next morning to begin planting flowers. (double yay!) So far, so good. Then family obligations took over and neither side had a chance to score until after dinner. Unfortunately, that was pretty much the end of the competition as it was now raining too hard to plant and my slightly scratchy throat had turned into a full fledged cold. I spent the rest of the weekend either asleep in bed or staring out the window at the rain.
Since I managed to write enough to submit a small scene to my crit group, I guess I'd have to give the nod to the writing side, but there's nothing worse than a wasted weekend!
I hope this weekend works out better for you.
