Hiding Out

Ken is off to Green Bay for a football game with his sister.  She won tickets and invited him.  He was thrilled.  I am as well.  Not because I'm going to a football game - yuck that wouldn't be any fun for me - but because I will have the house all to myself for several hours.

I've had a couple of days of high pain levels thanks to the lovely humid weather.  However, I'm going to push that all to the back and work on projects.  I came home from work today and tried to take a nap.  Sleep still doesn't like me so that didn't work.

Projects it is.  I realized I copied over my latest version of my poetry book with an earlier version.  This means I lost several hours of work.  My own fault, I did things in the wrong order.  This means I have to go through and reorder the poems, set up sections, copy front and back material and a myriad of other things - AGAIN.  (Sometimes I just want to kick myself.)

I'm going to work on that.  If I get it all done and can still manage to be on the computer, I will work on the production part of the book.

I've been editing the second book in the Defender series I'm working on.  I realized I didn't like where I ended it.  The best place to end it is nearly 30,000 words later.  This means I've got to let go of the idea that I am trying to write the story in a set length.  It means the second book will be about 1 1/2 times longer than the first book.  Unless I decide to change where the first book ends but I like where the first book ends.  It seems appropriate.  Once I start questioning, it is not a good sign.  The question I have to ask myself is am I questioning because I am feeling under confident in my work or is there a problem with the work.

Poetry book first.  Defenders books second.  Editing third.  This is what my plan is for hiding out.
