The story is relatively short, so by the end of the day, I plan to have at least half this thing red penned to Nth degree, and ready to rewrite. And I mean, when I sit down at the computer again, all I have to do is key in what's already jotted down. I'm going rabid ninja on this bitch.
I noticed I'll have to add to it a bit to boost the word count, and I imagine it will just scrape by the required count. I don't think I've ever cut it so close before. Usually my stories run a little long and I have to trim them back. I was trying to avoid that with this one, but it seems I went to the opposite extreme. Story of my life. Marilyn Mason = Hello Kitty, and all that.
I picked up a new book. I'm currently reading Sex with Strangers (Black Lace). I'm about half way through the book, and so far my fave in the lot is the first story: Mind the Gap, by Mae Nixon. Sex on a train. In the dark. Guy in a business suit. Mm. Interesting.
That's about all I have to share today. Maybe once the week wears on. I'm hoping the submission faerie will land in my inbox soon. *wishing very hard* I'm still waiting to hear back on a couple of submissions I sent off in December 2008 through January this year. Lost in e-transit, maybe?
I'm going to close with a video of my fave bellydancer ever, Sadie. She is soooo talented. She is, like, the queen of isolations. Doesn't do much work with her arms usually, so this video is a treat. I found it yesterday while browsing youtube. It's relatively new - from 2008. I hadn't seen it before!
