This blog follows how a romance novel set in the Borders of medieval Scotland is researched, written and hopefully *hopefully* published.

Tonight I Write...

So the weekend flew by. Honestly, I was kicking myself because I didn't get caught up in any of the Harry Potter madness. I mean, there were bookstore parties all around and it never even occurred to me to go and people-watch. It was like the end of an era (in a way) in writing and publishing and I missed it. Ugh.

Me? I'll be writing later tonight.

But we did go to the local drive-in theater (yes, there's actually one two "towns" over). I hadn't been to a drive-in since I was five or six (from what I recall of the event). It was AWESOME. The night was clear, cool enough to keep bugs at bay and the place was utterly rustic. Bathrooms like when I was a Campfire Girl at Camp Adahi (before the upgrades ;-). But really, there's nothing quite like snacking on popcorn and M&Ms (and Jelly Babies during Harry Potter) while curled in your car with a three-year old leaning against you and the hubby making sure you don't fall asleep because you're just so darned warm and full and comfy. :-) The double feature was Transformers and Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix. My son fell asleep early on (he had played with some kids on the communal play set and tired himself out).

But it was truly lovely. We're thinking about returning when the features change. It's a seasonal theater and it's for sale. Sad, really. Some developer will probably snap it up and put in a gas station that'll overcharge us all for the convenience of overcharging us all more locally. ;-)

Take care!

We have a drive in about an hour from Chicago. Its well with the drive. It makes me feel like a kid to go there. I just had to take my little brothers and make sure they didn't miss out on the experience.
