Monkey Work


Laura and I spent the night outlining the next book in our FINDING GRACE/GMAIL/WE REALLY NEED TO THINK OF A DECENT TITLE AND SOON series. I'll admit that I was concerned that we would struggle to come up with a mystery half as good as the first book and I think we nailed it. Honestly, I think this mystery might be even better. We're so excited to start writing again!

Anyways, after we were done with our rough outline of the plot I told Laura that I had to update a project plan in Excel for my "real job." And Laura had the nerve to call my real job, "monkey work." I laughed so hard that I almost started crying. It was just too perfect and, at the same time, incredibly depressing. Or maybe this is all just a sign that I need to get more sleep.

Either way, off to do my monkey work.


P.S.
How scary is that monkey in the picture? Yikes.
