Happy Last-Monday-In-January, Folks! Can you believe January is almost over already? I actually feel as if I’ve done enough this month to where if someone told me it was the end of February or March I would probably be like “That makes sense!” 🙂 I’m hoping to write a month review at the end of each month and I’m excited about this one! Just knowing I’ll get to share with y’all what I’ve been doing gives me that little extra shove to keep on working.
We’ve arrived at our first destination in Florida, and it’s beautiful. It’s going to be great hanging out with family, eating fresh oranges, walking in the warm air and working. I’m hoping I’ll be able to catch up on some things I’ve gotten behind on with writing. I have several emails to write, plotting/brainstorming to work on and research to do. Life is fun. 🙂
On Saturday night I was going through the manuscript I had sent my editor, looking for a scene that I wanted my illustrator to draw, when I suddenly saw some of the notes my beta reader had written for me. I freaked out. How in the world did they get in the final copy? I’m still not sure, except that I had a bad headache the night I sent my editor the file and must not have saved it after I made all the changes. So yes, my editor got a few of the comments left in his copy. Yikes, right?
Frantically (because it was close to midnight and I have that goal of not being on my computer on Sunday) I worked at getting the file corrected and sent to him with an email of explanation. (No, Editor, I really did not think you needed that simple grammar tip…) Thankfully, my editor is amazing and told me not to worry. 🙂
We had a short day of traveling yesterday, only about four hours. For about three of those hours, my sisters and I had an extremely fun time group texting with our bro who’s back home and some friends who live several states away. Then we decided to Facetime, and that was a great and kinda crazy and interesting experience. 🙂 I’m so thankful for our friends!
What are your plans for this week?
