Huckleberries Online

TGIF Wild Card 12.28.12

And so a short work week ends followed by a gloriously long weekend. I'm taking a page from DFO's book and will be taking a couple week's off from SR deadlines to finish my book War Bonds: Love Stories from the Greatest Generation. It will be the first time in six years that a week will go by without a deadline. As a freelancer, if I don't file stories, I don't get paid, so even when I take vacation time I file my stories ahead of time.

This will be an unpaid advenure, but one I'm rather looking forward to! When is the last time you took a couple weeks off of work?

Here's your Wild Card.
