If you were here last Monday, you know I’d taken off four days from work to finish Book 3 and get it to my beta reader by Thursday. I DID IT!!! Friends, that was four days of intensive writing, revising, and editing. My butt was glued to the chair, my bed, at the kitchen table – wherever I felt inspired. But when I sent it to her, it was such a relief – the clouds parted, and there might have been joyous singing involved. Thankfully, not by me. But the happy dancing was all me. I’m still not where I want to be with the word count, but I suspect my beta will let me know several areas where I need to beef it up, and over the weekend, I came up with more to add at the end.
So this week, I plan to get around to all the blogs I’m behind on, and do ALL THE READING. I have several books to catch up on from friends, book club, and those for review. I also need to visit Canva and Bookbrush to create some new social media images – mine are getting a bit stale. When it comes to those, I’m seriously lacking in skill. My inbox is down to 220 – from 346. Progress is being made.
I mentioned a couple of months back my youngest son would be in Austria for four weeks taking classes. He’s having a fantastic time hiking (claims he almost fell off a mountain – he’s a little dramatic), trying new food (hot chocolate with caramel popcorn on top – I question the logic in this), and traveling (going to Italy twice). Here are some pics he sent. Have a great week!
