I worked on my wip yesterday until I finished the rough draft. I blew my 9k goal out of the water. I'm somewhere closer to 11k. Woot!
Today I have the pleasure of printing up the whole thing, organizing it, and red penning it to death... which is what I'll be doing throughout the weekend. I still have the love scenes to flesh out, and I always save those for last - they are the biggest pain to write. If you're not careful, they become monotonous. And who likes monotonous sex, right?
So, I plan for a busy weekend filled with headaches, insane fits of hair pulling, paper jams, grammar confusion, ink cartridge run outs, and all the other glorious things to do with trying to whip a manuscript into shape.
On another note...I dreamed about spiders last night. Well, a spider actually. I think it was a black widow, but it was kind of hard to tell since the critter was more of a silhouette than anything else.
In the dream, the bedroom was full of dim blue light, and I glanced toward the door and saw this black spider crawl into the room byway of the gap under the door. I watched it crawling around for a minute, it had it's front... thingle hoppers lifted - whatever they're called - fangs, I guess. Oh, yeah, he was pissed. He wanted to bite somebody... very probably ME. An aggressive looking spider for sure. And creepy. So I got up, grabbed one of hubby's work boots and attempted to splat him (the spider, not hubby), but I missed.
The spider went crawling off in a different direction and I went back to bed, but in the dream I couldn't get back to sleep after that because I knew the darn thing was in the room with us, and you know how it is... if you don't squash a problem it can come back to haunt you later on?
Not sure what made me dream about something like that. I'm not afraid of spiders, I respect some are have a venomous bite, etc. But they are everywhere here, they get in the house, you see them in the yard - I definitely don't squeal at the sight of a bug with 8 legs. However they are a reoccuring theme in my dreams, so I'm jotting this one down like all the rest. *nods*
That's it for me. Dora is on, Mini is busy, and I best get the coffee brewing so I can stay awake long enough to handle my business... :P Happy Saturday, friends. I hope your weekend is sunny and bright!
