I’ve been an editing machine lately. I worked through my 3rd book five times looking for different things before I sent it off to my beta-readers. Now I’m rereading Book 1 to make it better. When the final book is done in the Eyes of Light series, I want to promote all 3 at once (since I haven’t done much marketing for Book 2).
The bad thing about editing and writing for me is that I forget about things. I turned on my hose this morning to deep water my berries and left to go write. 10 hours later, I finally remembered the hose was still running. Yikes!
Needless to say, my berries got VERY DEEP watered. There is a pool out in my firepit area now. Luckily, it is irrigation water from the canal, so I won’t have a big bill like I would have had in Las Vegas for overwatering. Whew!
Other things I’ve forgotten as I get DEEP into writing or editing:
- Meals = burnt offerings
- Kids = stuck somewhere without a ride (And I wonder why I haven’t won MOM OF THE YEAR yet)
- Appointments = embarrassment when I have to call to reschedule (Yes! I know you called me yesterday to remind me…but did you call me today? Hmmmm?)
- Assignments = more embarrassment (I’m holding my hands up to my head in a big letter L)
Sigh. Does anyone want to come over and swim in my new pool and commiserate with me?
