I'm going to work on Monday.
I'll be writing two short scenes (Jon plays with Gabe; Jon goes to the library), which are intended to show what a nice guy Jon actually is. I haven't figured out where to plop them, but that's a Monday job also.
But I won't work on Saturday or Sunday or Tuesday for that matter. Tuesday morning I'm going to buy $45.00 worth of groceries, because I have a coupon that will give me $3 off if I do. And then Tuesday afternoon I'm going to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, because on Tuesdays, the movie ticket only costs $6.00 if you're old enough (and I am and then some).
So just by not working, I'll be saving $5.00. Pretty darn impressive.
On Wednesday, all short scenes having been written, I'll start the actual rewriting. Of which there is a great amount to do. I've read the manuscript twice now, and neither time did any descriptive writing show up. Believe me, I looked. There might have been an adverb or two (I seem to recall someone smiling ruefully), but not an adjective to be seen.
Personally, I like nouns and verbs, with the occasional adverb for seasoning, but editors seem to favor adjectives. And when one is writing a book without a contract (my decision, I grant you, but nonetheless), it pays to please the editor.
So, for all of you having a more traditional three day weekend, have a splendid, lazy, sunny, pleasurable, safe, meaningful, enjoyable, relaxing time. And for those of you who don't get Monday off, please send me some adjectives. As you can see, I could use some help!
