Even by pre-Covid standards, this was a busy week — nothing like a busy week of ten or fifteen years ago, mind, but busy for these days.
There were two classes, two other scheduled calls, a dentist appointment, a couch delivery, and the delivery of a big batch of edits. Below is a screen shot showing how many chapters have been deleted or drastically shortened. Mostly deleted.
The only one I’m attached to is Love’s Quarry and so I may find another way to publish it.
The couch is a whole story on its own. Let’s just say it was long overdue and both K and I felt sheepish about putting it on the curb. What would people think of us?
Today’s weather term is warm-layer sandwich. This refers to fluctuating temperatures — cold, warm, cold. Around here that’s resulted in snow, rain, and now sleet. I’ve stayed indoors all day.
In other news, I’m apparently a genius.
WordPress might beg to differ. I got help weeks back with empty picture frames on old posts. There was no cause that I could decipher on my end. They fixed one post — the mice tutorial. But I’ve since gone on to discover whole batches of missing pix. Some I fixed, but it hardly seems worth it. That’s a giant UGH.
Meanwhile I’m rather proud to announce that I figured out how to type an open apostrophe. The fact that I happed upon it accidentally makes it more not less amazing.
Lastly, I’m reading novels that can possibly serve as comparables in my query letter. More on that another time.
