Don’t check your calendar, it’s Saturday. Again. Another week has rolled around and slipped away. We have been at war all week with the meter high weeds growing in yet to be landscaped clay slate of our back yard. It’s an all out “Weed-egeddon” using lawnmowers, shovels, and our bare hands. In another 6-8 weeks I might actually have a fence and grass back there – joy!
Mr. Manuscript received a few hours of my attention, not nearly enough. What is it about warmer weather that makes me want to stay up late, sleep in, and not be able to focus on anything? The front end of the novel is in good shape, I like how the recent revision has provided means for the characters to demonstrate relationships. Now I have the saggy middle section to firm up and make agree with the changes. There are a few major action sequences coming up in the next few chapters that will be great fun to tackle. I can’t wait to get there.
