So this morning I meant to go swimming. I even wore my suit to the coffee shop where my husband and I eat breakfast (I wore it under my clothes - I'm not crazy). But then I didn't go to the Y to go swimming. I came home and sat my butt in front of my computer where I played a half hour of video games and then worked on revising my novel for . . . four and half hours now. I stopped to walk the dog and eat a bowl of cereal, but otherwise, I'm still in my speedo - which is getting increasingly uncomfortable, by the way - and the pool closes soon for team practice, so it doesn't look like I'll be going swimming until later tonight. Yep, that's how much I like revision.
Today started with line-editing Chapter 6. I didn't finished that yet, although I'm only 2 pages away, because I realized I have some logistical problems that can only be solved with maps and blueprints. Fun, right? I actually think so.
|It's amazing what you can do with auto-shapes.|
I think I'll go take a quick nap with the pug now, then get back to Chapter 6. My goal is to have Chapters 1-10 marked up, transferred to the computer, and TOTALLY REVISED by this coming Sunday. My husband is off work next week, and I'm unlikely to get much done while he's home, so I think this is an excellent and practical goal. Extra credit if I get through Chapter 12 because that would be HALF THE BOOK!
