A Quick Post

Hubby has taken the kids to their Auntie's today, so I can work on my final draft. I printed up Chapters 8 and 9 and looked them both over. What a nightmare! There is a scene missing, for one thing, and it's looking like 8 will have to be entirely rewritten. Arg! *chews Tums*

Monday hubby starts a new job and so I doubt I'll be able to get much accomplished in the following month. *_* So for today, I've set about making a list of all the elements both chapters need to be repaired and fitted together. I could be reading too much into it at this point, but it looks like a major undertaking. Geez. And here I was, wanting to be through with Chapter 10 by the end of the weekend...

One Step Closer

I'm finally over Chapter 7. There wasn't much wrong with it, but it took me forever to get around to working on it. I wrote out a few corrections I intended to make,then put it aside. I am not going to go crazy with this one. Just making things readable, and fixing any glaring errors I might have missed, nothing more. Today I'll be printing up Chapter 8 so I can give it the once over. I hope hope to have the entire proofing process completed by the end of March. I want to have everything ready to send over to Gail by that point.

On another note, I was browsing the diva forums yesterday and someone mentioned there is only a few days left of February. By gosh, when I checked the calendar, I realized they were right! Only 9 days til they announce the stories they'll be using for Amber Quill Heatwave anothology.

My Space Glitching has been glitching like crazy. I'm having trouble staying logged on. :( Well, maybe I'll have time to wish everyone a Happy V Day tomorrow.

Lucky Seven

Chapter 6 was not too bad after all! It's corrected, proofed and ready to go. Now it's only the Lucky Seven. :)

Tomorrow I'll be proofing, but I learned recently Phaze is having a contest for their latest Heatsheet Anthology, called Surge. I'm considering doing a 5k word entry... if I have the time. I won't be able to work on it til Wednesday, so I guess I'll know then.

16 days til Amber Quill releases their finalists. Woot! *crosses fingers*

Working on 6

I'm finally over Chapter 5! *dance, dance* I swear, that one was a killer. I hope there aren't too many others that are so time consuming.

Note: Only a month to go to before the results of Amber Quill's Heatwave is posted. :)
