Today I’ve been editing my book. I make it through three scenes, which puts me at the beginning of chapter 4 of Book 1. For most of the day, I’ve been living on coffee, taking moments off every so often to check email, wordpress, Facebook, and go down the TikTok/Instagram rabbit hole to give my brain a break.
Writing for the agency has stalled this week, and unfortunately there is a lot of buzz about why we didn’t get paid and none of the admins are saying anything about getting that fixed. I figured I can write for them and not get paid today, or I can write for me and still not get paid, but at least my book is that much closer to be ready to be sent out.
Most chapters are slimming down, either with the deletion of a lot of extra stuff or economy of word use. What’s weird is sometimes I get a reminder of a chapter I still want to write and trying to figure out how it will fit into any of the books. So, as I trim, I’m also adding.
Penny and I got a nap today. I’ve been sleeping better again. Trying my best to move on from a lot of things.
I made a playlist which I’ve been using for background noise when I edit. If you are interested, check it out!
