If you heard a spontaneous round of expletives rent the wee morning hours (central time), that very well could have been me. I stayed up til a little after midnight working on the dreaded Chapter 6. Well, I got through that, flipped to the next screen to go on with the story, and what do I find? What the heck do I see in the middle of the page?
I find a whole scene smack dab in the middle of everything - that goes with nothing! *forehead smack*
In my weary, insomnia fueled state, I have no idea why I did that. I read through the scene and the following chapter - if you can call it that - but it wasn't until this morning after my first cup of coffee, that I realized the "surprise oasis" I'd found was originally intended to show up much later in the story. Pretty close to the end. As I've expanded the book, I never moved it through the script. So today I have the joy of printing up the back few chapters and doing Frankenstein surgery to position the surprise find where it goes so I can write around it. Sheesh. :P
Today is Wednesday, and because it's cold outside, because I'm still in my pajamas, and further because I am just feeling lazy today I think it's time for another four minute dance break! I'm not sure how many people remember Kim Carnes, but I'm putting her up today. I remember my cousin's old girlfriend going to get her hair bleached to look like Kim's. Wow, that was a long time ago!
*dance break* *dance break* *dance break* *dance break*
*leaving dance break zone*
Maybe today I'll get everything cleared away with this one Chapter so I can sit and watch a movie. I bought a handful of DVD this past weekend, but haven't had a chance to sit and watch them yet. Probably wouldn't have done me any good if I had. There's only so much we can put in the DVD player while Mini is awake, a lot of what we brought home is too scary for Mini. I bought Halloween - one of my favorite movies ever - but that one is a definite no-go unless Mini is napping.
I suppose I should get started on work. :P It's almost 10 AM, and I have a few things to do before I can break out the WIP. Hope you all have a Happy Hump Day!
