I’ve had about a week go by so far with no editing. Does it feel weird? Very! But I know that it’s coming very soon and once the second round of edits hits my mailbox, I’ll have around three weeks to get it done. Doable? Yes. Easy? No. But what’s life without a little challenge?

I seem to have reverted back to a state of normalcy which includes hanging out with friends and family, enjoying other pursuits such as gaming, reading and *shock* even writing! Okay. I haven’t actually written anything, yet. But I plan to. There’s an open call with Grey Matters Press that I want to attempt to write something for. Now, I just need the inspiration…

Lazy day

I woke up yesterday morning after a well deserved lie in. Saturday was spent hiking which was fun and although I didn’t do a normal distance I still ended up feeling tired just to the sheer length of the day. So my day on Sunday consisted of lovely, refreshing lie in. Getting up and having a lazy morning which included starting to put things back into order and having copious amounts of tea. Then I proceeded to read the edits my editor had sent my way for chapter six of my novel. I sat for several hours going through these which resulted in it becoming a way better chapter nine. I was pretty happy about that. Then, I spent a lot of time beginning to write some new chapters for it from another point of view. I found that bit a little harder. I guess I had to switch to different sections of my brain but at least I got started! Then I spent some time with the other half just hanging out (we may have been playing The Hobbit Lego game which is awesome!)

To me, yesterday was perfect. Sometimes I have to get out the house and just see other people and the world beyond the walls I live in, but sometimes I’m happy to stay right where I am and that was one of those days.

Today I’m back to the grind. I don’t mind so much really. I enjoy my job so I think that’s a major bonus and no two days are ever the same. Let’s see what the day brings!
