Status: revisions

This was my life yesterday:

Morning until 2:30: Coffee shop and Pike Place Market with the family. Gingersnap lattes, cold and sunny Seattle, chatty vendors, fishy smells, street musicians and fresh-fruit samples. Yum.

2:30-6:30: Parked on the couch with the Christmas tree lights on. Typing up revisions from the official print-out and reading through TIB from the beginning. Pumped up about the results!

6:30-7:00: Brain food for dinner — chicken tikki masala and salad with fresh avocados.

7:00-7:30: Revising. Back starting to ache. Pushing through. A little over halfway through the book. Still jazzed about EvErYtHiNg!

7:30-8:00: Drive to the local indie video store to get Julie and Julia for a movie break with mom and sis. Apparently the rest of Seattle had same plan — no copies left in this or other store.

8:00-9:00: Back to revising. New spot in the kitchen with a mug of Lady Gray tea. Guitar music.

9:00-10:00: Speed Scrabble tournament with family. (Speed Scrabble is Scrabble without the board — everyone makes their own little word-puzzles; it’s much harder and much more fun). I win almost every game; I am a champ.

10:00-10:30: Facebook, AW, brushing teeth.

10:30: Curl up in bed with Christmas lights around my window. Computer on the bed, print-out in my lap. Goal: finish reading through the rest of TIB to get a feeling for the entire book. Question: does the new-ish ending work?

12:00: Stretch break.

12:02-1:44: Glued to the book. Creeped out by the ending. Too dark outside! House is too quiet! Teary for the first time ever — because the ending is sad or because I am past exhausted?

1:45: Bed.

So now this round of revisions will be basically done after a few more touch-ups. Hurray! Time to breathe, sleep, and read books… and blog again!

  1. Love hearing about your day. The whole part from 10:30 onwards sounds like one of the things I’d do, lol. Re-reading my books during the first revision is always my favorite part ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also, I’ve been reading your teasers, and they’re so much fun! Glad you’re posting them.

      I know, I don’t stay up past midnight to write very often — so it was fun. And creepy, definitely.

      stay tuned for teasers…

  2. DUDE. I finished revisions (except for some polishing) two days ago at almost exactly the same time. o_O CREEPY.

  3. Fun day haha! Speed Scrabble sounds like a blast.

  4. Speed Scrabble champ indeed! You will have to try out Speed Scrabble Online, if you haven’t already ๐Ÿ™‚
