Ah, finally, the ability to stop writing and just breathe.
Edits and more edits took a bizarre turn last night. Basically, I made more work for myself having to patch things together.
For some reason, I decided to save my edited draft so that the original would not be changed, in the event I went back to it. But I forget that my shortcut function on my desktop linked to the original version. Since I had to shut down my work halfway through, when I started back up, I managed to edit two different manuscripts from two different points. Needless to say, last night at one in the morning I wasn't very happy.
I finished up my edits this morning and sent out my bizarro manuscript. It's for a special project for one of my publishers, but I fear I may be too outside the box for what was asked. I'll be working on edits for Julian's Jeopardy (Dawn Endeavor book 3) this weekend, but Monday marks the beginning of a new novel--Gunnar's Game. Can't wait to get started.
I love beginnings, and Gunnar and Ava have been dancing around each other in books 1 through 3, and Ava is tired of it. I am SO looking forward to her petite 5'4" frame kicking Gunnar's giant self all over the place!
In other news, I have time this weekend to catch up on Spartacus and True Blood. Yes, thanks to my friend Cat, I am now hooked on True Blood. I am so going to hit her the next time I see her. Like I don't have enough distractions!
So I'm rounding out my day with a birthday celebration for the 5 year old, a good night's sleep, and then more work this weekend. With school nearly over, I have a lot of work to do before I get the kids 24/7 again. And that's not counting my Cougar Falls work over the summer. So much to do, so little time.
