Guess what I'm doing today?
Yes, that's right. I'm editing Of Shadows and Ash.
There are times when the edits are going well, and you feel...well, sort of like Maria. The book is alive with the sound of words, right? Nothing can stop you, and you're on top of the world.
And then there are days when edits make you feel...well...
So here I am, on the second round of edits for Shadows, the third Maggie's Grove book. It's a Sunday, and I spent Saturday running errands and, of course, editing. So today I wake up early, make my coffee, settle down in front of my computer, and by page ten I was holding a pillow over my face to muffle my screams.
All right. I'll be honest here. Part of it may be that it's a Sunday, and I'd much rather be playing video games. It could be that the stuff being edited was brand new material and needed to be gone over with a fine-tooth comb, meaning more work on a day I usually call Jammie Sunday. It could also be my new meds, which make me sleep like a zom-zom.
Or, it could be that I'd rather be playing video games.
Come to think of it, I could totally go for some pizza right now too.
Damn it. Is it lunch time already?
Ugh. I need to get myhead back in the game, right? So... hot guys?
I think my brain is trying to tell me something.
Sigh. Back to work.
