Last night I finished the manuscript I was working on. I wrote about 15,000 words yesterday. It was a good day.
After I finished I was tired and rung out (like I normally get after a manuscript) and opted for a little tv. I watched an episode of NCIS LA and Person of Interest. I crashed. At 1 my phone beeped with a text message and woke me up enough I struggled to go back to sleep. However, a scene played and played in my head. I'll have to see about getting it written otherwise it is going to annoy me.
I woke up this morning groggy - not unusual as I didn't sleep well after I woke up at 1. After I talked to my middle daughter, I realized I had to get dressed today. Since I left work on Tuesday I've just been hanging out at home in my jammies. I did shower and change, just put on jammies both days.
This morning I've been busy with paying bills. I called my credit union because I had a question. The woman I spoke with was polite and friendly. We ended up talking about yarn and I learned she was a crocheter as well. Crafters are everywhere! You cannot escape them!!!
My hubby comes home tonight. I have about five hours more of my alone time. I'm not sure what I plan to do with it, probably write, but I definitely want to make the most of it. I guess I should find some clothes as I don't think I want to drive to the airport in my jammies - tempting but no.
Defenders series I have one more book (I hope it's only one) to write. I have maps of the villages I'm currently writing in and I am going to look for a list of which people went to which group. If I can get that info in paper form (yes I know but sometimes I just gotta have paper) I will go sit in my recliner and fall into Bri, Tof, and the other defenders.
I could use another week of alone time. Do you think Mother Nature might snow us in for that period of time? Probably not. I guess I should just be grateful for the time I've had and keep working.
At this point I have two manuscripts in paper form to edit and one electronically to edit. Electronically, I do a search for a set list of words I know I overuse and look at them to see if I can rewrite without the words and I do a spell / grammar check. Then I print. Either way, I have three manuscripts in the edit phase. I should add them to my spreadsheet where I track these things.
