It’s good to lie to yourself…

I received another round of edits I wasn’t expecting from my agent. They’re calling them tweaks. To my mind, some are, some are more far-reaching.

This week is busy and I won’t settle into my annual writer retreat with awesome hostess Joan Leacott until Monday or Tuesday, so even though I had a couple of free hours this afternoon, I thought, “Screw this. There’s no point in starting now.”

Which means, of course, that the moment I walked away from the computer, my brain sent me the perfect fixes for two of the larger editting issues. I jotted them down by hand quick before I forgot and rebooted the computer.

Thank you, Brain. Sorry I tricked you… not!

Nobody Wants to Read your Sh*t (And what you can do about it.)

This morning, I re-wrote the dark moment/all is lost scene in UNPLUGGED even though yesterday I’d declared it done.

Why? Because I’ve been listening to this awesome free book. BUT… It’s only free till the end of June, then it’s back to nearly $10 on Amazon just for the ebook. Me? I converted it to text and had VoiceDream read it to me while I walked the dog. Awesome learning and an entertaining read.

I’ll be checking out his “War of Art,” too, when I get the chance.
