Hiya 👋

Last week I shared that I set up a timetable to help me focus on my edits. I also mentioned that I’d probably not stick to it. My prediction was correct, but not to the extent I’d internally feared. Yay!

Hiya!

Last week taught me a couple of things. First, editing for myself requires so much more discipline than when I did it for clients 😬. And second, I need to take a serious look at my daily work schedule.

Where did the time go? The last two weeks have flown by, and my holiday is over. We had a wonderfully relaxing time as we celebrated our anniversaries. Chilling out at home, watching movies and playing original Halo on co-op! (Thank you for all your warm wishes for us both 💖)

With that much-needed break under my belt, it’s time to get back to work on the editing 😬

This week’s entry covers the next two weeks, which can only mean that I’m taking a break and plan to do sod all during that time (other than catch up on your comments 💖 and some blog and book reading 🎉 ).

Last week was my first one away from writing the actual story. I’d thought it would be relatively simple and not too taxing on the brain… Until I sat down at my desk at 0600 on Thursday…

Wow.

Wow.

Wow.

What a week last week turned out to be; I’m still reeling from it. I’ve got this weird detached feeling about it. It’s like this crazy combo of it was a year ago and that it was someone else’s experience. Basically, forgive the lack of detail about what occurred last week.

Another two scenes down, and the last two to go! It was difficult concentrating on the writing today–deliveries and setting up our new internet… and all the WiFi devices crying because they can’t get online. But we now have superfast broadband!

Today’s new words takes Running the Asset‘s manuscript to 137,560 words!

Have a great weekend 🤗

I’ve just finished writing the climax for the external plot! Another two and a half scenes in the bag. I cut the first scene for tomorrow in half to create two scenes to up the dramatic irony for the reader. Come on, who doesn’t love shouting at book characters when they don’t know something the reader does?

There are just four scenes left to go!

Running the Asset‘s manuscript is now at 135,301 words!

Have a great weekend 🤗
