Happy Labor Day!

What does Labor Day mean to you? A day celebrating the workers of our Nation, from the burger flippers at Micky D's to the CEOs of multi-billion dollar corporations? The last day of summer? A good reason to throw an outdoor barbeque?

For me, it means the beginning of my work season (September through mid-June). The kids go back to school tomorrow -- Woo hoo! -- and I can begin a new manuscript after taking the summer off. OK, so I read a lot, making a minor dent in my TBR pile. For writers, we can justifiably call it market research. *G* But come tomorrow, it's time for Lori-the-writer to plant her butt in the chair and get back to work. Or, in other words, start the labor.


  1. The end of summer is so sad. Our Labour Day is the first Monday in May.

    Good luck with the writing.

  2. Happy Labor Day back at you! :) I'm hoping to have more time to write too now that school's starting.
