Well, much like my little friend on the left, I feel like I was running and going nowhere today. Actually, that is only part true. I did move forward on my rewrites, but not nearly enough. I’ve been reading a couple of chapters, marking up the hard copy, then entering all the changes in the computer. I’m wondering if I should just read straight through the whole manuscript and then do all the entering after I’m done. I wonder if that would go faster. Hmm.
No deep thoughts for this entry. Brain-dead. Ugh! My house is a wreck. I’ve got unopened mail stacked on the side of my desk. Laundry needs done. Calgon, take me away!
Two emails from editors today. Editor #1 for February 2006 release wants cover art info by Friday. (A need for it this early — a year and two months — makes me wonder if they are moving the release date up. Hmm. Maybe I should ask.) Editor #2 for my April 2005 release asked about endorsements. Do I have anybody lined up for that? Uh. No. (Brain-dead. Brain-dead.)
You know what the problem with this blog is? I have exposed the glamorous nature of my life. I just sit around eating bonbons, then dress up and go to fancy dress balls. Yeah, right.
I am doing an advance reading of Liz Curtis Higgs’ Whence Came a Prince, the third book in a series. I have loved all of these books, and I can hardly wait to get to the end of this one to see how the author pulls off this retelling of the story of Jacob, Rachel, and Leah with a 1700 Scotland setting. I’m a slow reader because I do pleasure reading only at bedtime. But I’m enjoying every page. I highly recommend them.
Saw a report on TV that people who get less than 6 hours of sleep per night are more apt to be overweight. So that explains it, she says as she reaches for that Hersheys chocolate bar.
