Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a mug of very strong Sumatra Roast, a cuppa tea (we have a variety) a mug of cocoa or other beverage. It is funny, out. The sky is grey and it feels like snow. We did get a dusting over night. but it is supposed to get relatively warm today. And were are we? Some of you may recognize that mug and synthesizer at the top of the page as living in new Hampshire.
Week: Work. Play. Eat. Sleep. Questions? ;)
I read The Halley Branch out loud and made a lot of little changes (wording, etc.). I am calling the 4th draft finished. I like were I am, but I may need to go back and cut some redundant stuff. It all makes sense the way it is, but I do repeat myself. Sometimes I do it on purpose. Other times, well,it is just how it works out. So I need to see if I can cut down a bit (I’m at 100K words…). That, the trimming, will be my next draft.
I’ve also started to read The Fireborn out loud and edit it. I know there are a lot of typos. I’ve found a few, but so far mostly I’ve just cleaned things up. Not a huge amount yet, but a bit. Some awkward sentences, putting in commas, etc. I’ve had a few people sy they saw a lot of typos, so hopefully I can get a list of some of them and catch those. As soon as I put up a cleaner version, I want to promote it heavier. I would like to have more sales than I can count on the fingers of one hand….
We had a storm on Wednesday. It was pretty nasty most of the day. I walked to my massage appointment in the middle of it. There was a lot of rain in the middle – the rain started earlier than predicted. When I went out on Thursday, I had a crust of ice over now with ice underneath. Yuck. There are still some messy places…
That’s about it for this week. I hope you had a great week!
