#SoCS April 14/18 – Mon

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mon.” Use the letters “mon” in a word, or use it as a word by itself. Have fun!

The first thing that came to mind was Mon ami – which, in French, means my friend.
I wanted to start the post with a Bonjour, Mon ami! Then I realised that I would be referring to only one of you, and there are so many of you, people I consider my friends, my blog-pals, in the Blogosphere! Though I know there will only be one of you sat there, in your own space, reading it at any one time, so I guess I could make it really personal!

Bonjour, Mon ami!

I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday morning/afternoon/evening/night (delete as appropriate!)

You know what? I am dreading Monday…

These past two weeks have been wonderful, what with our little break, and finally finishing my 18-year-old WIP. And I haven’t really thought about school at all, apart from the one day I had to go in to do some preparation.

I almost don’t want to go back, to be honest!

But, it’s got to be done.

The novel isn’t published yet, it’s not a best-seller, made into a hit Hollywood/Bollywood movie, allowing me to retire and write in peace, happily ever after.

Not yet.

But I can dream, you know…

I’m off to celebrate Vaisakhi now, at the local Nagar Kirtan, or parade around the town centre so will catch up soon!

Oh, and in case you were wondering what happened with regards to my passive/aggressive Hubby Dearest, and the apartments complaint, from past week’s SoCS post… We ended up staying in the same place, but left a night early, and got a FULL REFUND! See, it pays to complain (politely) sometimes!




Happy Saturday Peeps!

    The first step is done. What will develop from here is not written yet… who knows, if we see your novel on TV one day! Have a great celebration, ma chère amie!

    Congrats on your 18 year WIP completion!!! What a thrill that must be?? Hope you had fun out and went a little wild and crazy? Always fun to let loose bit. Here’s hoping you have tremendous world-wide success and can let money worries be a thing of the past!!!

    I always love the question, “What would you do if money were no object?” Helps one focus a bit to see if you can find a way to do what you want without the need for a lot of cash! Or you might have to do as I had to do – wait for retirement! LOL!

    Loved your comment about complaining in a nice way!! I learned a long time ago that “If you don’t ask, you don’t get!”. And what’s really great is when you get something fixed for yourself sometimes you can get it fixed for many others similiarly situated! That is a great feeling! Kudos to you, My Dear and congrats again!
    And thank you so very much for all your views/support for my blog!

      Thank you soooo much!
      I haven’t really ‘let lose’ but I am very happy inside, with the satisfaction of completing that manuscript!!!!!

    I understand not wanting to go back to school, I had that feeling many a time, but as you know we need the MONey to survive.
