I’m working with the cover artist on the book while I wait for the proofreader to finish proofing.
This is going to be a weird day. I have people coming to take down two trees that are problematic, and I also have a guy coming to fix my garage door. (It will open, but it doesn’t always want to close.) Then after all that is done, I have a dental appointment this afternoon. What fun. NOT.
English Teachers Rock!
I’m putting the final touches on my WIP and getting it ready to go to a reader and then to a proofreader. You would think a former English teacher wouldn’t need a proofreader, but apparently this one does.
The Tax Man Time
Income tax. I’ve been working on it all morning. Sigh. Whine. It has to be done.
I think I’m finally satisfied with the book. I’m waiting for a reader to get to it, and if she doesn’t find any big problems, then I can send it to the proofreader. In the meantime, I’m trying to write the back-cover blurb which can be harder than a 70,000 word manuscript.
Well, I had hoped I’d finish going over Home is Where Your Heart Is, but I’ve decided to go over it again. Still not completely happy with it. It won’t be long.
I have finally been able to sit down at the computer and work on polishing the draft of my latest book. I hadn’t looked at it in about six weeks and I was good to see that I still liked the story and didn’t need to make too many corrections.
Getting on Track
Funny thing about holidays, they tend to throw you off schedule. I forgot today was Tuesday. I’m hoping I can finish all the chores I have to do before next week, so I can get myself back on track. I have a rough draft to start polishing.
You may have noticed that I didn’t post last week. I have an excuse. I was out of the country on a long-anticipated trip to Europe to take a river cruise on the Danube to visit Christmas Markets. What a wonderful way to get into the holiday mood. And while I was traveling, I got a terrific idea for another story.
We Were on a Break
I’m enjoying taking a break from writing since I did finally finish the draft, and I’m running myself ragged catching up with Christmas preparations. No resting, I guess. Will pick the book back up and polish and edit after the holidays.
