So I've been experiencing something recently... and I just realized I had it happen on two different revisions of my Cozy (the last extensive edit I did)--[last... yeah, right, you nut... like last week] AND on my LEGACY revisions... it is this WACKY thing... I dive in with dread... I hate the editing... and then suddenly... it's like there is this IDEA fairy or something...
I walk along reading (yes, you read that right), editing (yes... still walking) and then... there is this IDEA that adds... then another IDEA that connects pieces... another IDEA... AND THEN, AND THEN AND THEN... and I realize I am breathing heavily and getting hot and bothered... HEY! THIS IS GOOD!!!!
It's a sign, I think... I've made PEACE with editing.
What about you? Ever get all hot and bothered about your revisions?
That is NOT to say I don't have a TON to do... I do... I have been working steadily, and if I CONTINUE to work steadily, it will be done... but my REAL worry is 'will I have time to polish? On that one, I am not so sure.
Great Contest: So Rachael and Tessa and Marieke are having a CONTEST, and they are giving away a TON of good stuff--Mostly related to critiques, but they have book substitutions for non-writers, and if they collect enough followers, they are throwing in Amazon Gift Cards... So go check it out!
Great Advice for Weight Management: My sister Tart is actually ALSO an MD and posted a FABULOUS list (just 4 things) of things that REALLY help with weight management, so if you have a New Years Resolution related to WEIGHT, this is a great one to check out.
Trailer Contest: So Spunk on a Stick is holding the final round of a Trailer contest. Our Buddy Alex is among finalists (WAHOO) but even if you didn't want to go just be supportive, these are really fun to watch. It got me excited about several books so go look at the trailers and vote!
Lunch Date: And I discovered recently that someone I went to high school with ACROSS THE COUNTRY lives less than an hour away. Tomorrow she has a business appointment closer to here so we are meeting for lunch! Nuts! I'm really excited about it...
