Yay, it’s Friday! So ready for the week to be over. It snowed last night so I had to make the long commute on crappy roads (totally makes for a long day). Some of the drivers were driving like maniacs. There are times when I wonder if they are wearing blindfolds, I mean, hello–people are in ditches…
GRRRR…so anyway (LOL), I just finished reading A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies. It was a good book, and I have to say I LOVED Asher (sigh). Also loved the mystery behind Skye and how her emotions were triggering certain things. My only complaint, the cliffhanger ending!! OMG, I hate having to wait to find out what happens to characters.
I started reading Shadowed Summer by Saundra Mitchell this week, which is really good so far. Saundra has a perfect way of painting her characters and settings. I’m like 1/3 of the way through it already.
On the writing front, I’m knee deep in edits (still). Yeah, it’s totally taking me forever. But I’m more than 1/2 done so that’s good. I’m going to have to do some major overhaul on the last 3-4 chapters though. My goal is to get another chapter done during break today, then try and finish the edits/applying of critiques this weekend and have it over to my beta readers by next week. Not sure if I’ll get this over to Agent Lady by the end of the year or not, but I’m sure gonna try.
And now for the waiting segment of the show. Yes. That’s the sound of crickets (hehehehe). I’m trying so hard to be patient while I wait to hear back from the movie companies and a publisher who has one of my stories right now. But man, it’s totally hard. I’ve been trying to stay focused on my edits, however, that’s been mega hard.
At least a couple other ladies in my crit group are playing the waiting game too so we can kind of email back and forth about not hearing from everyone (hehehe). I have a feeling, I’ll likely have to wait for any information until after the holidays (sniffle).
Unless, of course, Santa Claus surprises me (snickers). Okay, not likely, but I’m trying to be positive here!
Oh, and this weekend is my son’s birthday (yay). He’ll be 14 yrs old (is that possible?). He wants a blueberry cheesecake for his b-day cake (he gets that from my hubby). Although, I do LOVE cheesecake. Still have to drop by the store and get his present.
What’s everyone else doing this weekend? Any big plans?
