SassiePup is stretched out across my lap snoozing this morning. It's kinda cold out, so she's in a super snuggly mood. Earlier, while Mini was waiting for the bus, she desperately wanted to stand at the door and look outside, but within two minutes of standing in the doorway she was shivering to bits. Silly girl. I ended up toting her around to help keep her warm. I've tried to explain to her this behavior isn't conductive to getting revisions completed, but I don't think she cares. Go figure.
Speaking of revisions, I had an awesome, squee-worthy moment late last night. I have about a third of the story cleaned up, and when I went back and reread parts of it, I came across this one scene that gave me chills. It wasn't because the scene was super hot, or scary, or whatever, it's because I noticed a change in my own writing. This scene came across as more sophisticated than anything I've written up to this point, and that thrilled me to no end. Maybe I'm finally breaking out of this plateau and growing as a writer. Baby steps, yo. I'll take it!
I'm about to grab my Kindle and snuggle on the couch with SassiePup for a while. At least until my coffee kicks in. Then, it'a back to revisions on this story. I've got some tough pages coming up, so I need to be bright eyed and bushy tailed to deal with it.
That's all for now. I hope your Thursday is a pleasant one. Oh, and if you're a Neopets player - don't forget: the Advent calendar opens today! ;o)
