Mini and I slept in very late this morning. Normally I'd feel really guilty about that, but yesterday when Jay came in for lunch, he had his paycheck with him. I took care of all our bill paying yesterday, even bought a few groceries. Knowing I wouldn't have to do the usual rounds today, I stayed super late last night - til somewhere around midnight tweaking a chapter.
I wasn't going down til it was finished, and I am jumping-joy happy today because I got through it! My crit partner sent back that chapter I emailed and I can't even begin to say how helpful that was. *tackle hug* Once she pointed out a few things to me, the magic came back. I was rockin' the wip again. Today I'll be working on a lurrrve scene. ^_^
One thing I noticed yesterday, I don't have to worry about is the word count with this current manuscript - which is a total relief. Am I the only author that frets over that sort of thing? You get to chapter 4 and realize that your book might fall short, so you start dividing the current count by the remaining chapters? Once you do, you start freaking out because it looks like you'll need a bazillion more chapters to meet the required length? That's me. I sucked at math in school, but I can come up with some bizarre equations to drive myself nuts with when it comes to a manuscript. It's an illness, I tell you.
Anyway, I better get crackin'. I woke up late to start, but then Hubby called me a little while ago and said if he and his helper can finish a run of conduit early, the crew will take off the rest of the day. Woot! He didn't tell me how many feet they were expected to run, but that would be awesome if he could make it home even a little early.
It's Friday, folks! *dance, dance* Hope yours is a good one!
