A Quick Breather

I have not yet caught up with the normal flow of time, but I am nearly there! Ironically, going back to work for the new school year has helped, putting me back into a routine (although the routine itself is abnormal). A sign of the slow return to normalcy is the fact that I have gotten back to writing.

Well, editing, actually. It is September now, somehow, and according to the Great Plan, September is the month where I being the first great edit of the manuscript I finished a few weeks ago. I usually dislike editing, but now the idea of sitting down and going over my own work has appeal. Perhaps its because I feel that this story has a lot of potential that needs to be implemented in the first half of the story, or perhaps its because I’m still fond of the characters. Whatever the case, I shall hopefully continue to edit for the next few months until its time for NaNoWriMo.

Hopefully, it shall be a productive month! (fingers crossed….)

    I hope it’s productive too. That way you will finally email me your story. Have you moved to Seattle yet?

      The move is part of my timey wimey problem. We were supposed to move a few weeks ago, but stuff came up for the previous occupant, and we’ve had to wait until they can leave before we go in. My house is a labyrinth of boxes!
      But as soon as the edit is done, I’m sending the manuscript your way!

    Remember at the beginning of August when you finished your manuscript and were going to email it to me so I could help you edit? Good times.

      I haven’t forgotten! I finished that first run through, and then moved, started up a second job, and decided it would be a great idea to do nanowrimo again. Sometimes I wonder about my great ideas. Anyway, I’m hoping to type up my changes by Christmas and send it to you. I really do appreciate your editing eyes!!!
