So my after my crappy morning my afternoon has turned out pretty good. I’ve had a busy day and I didn’t think get to do everything I need/wanted/had to to but its still been a good afternoon. I picked up a new ipod, though I didn’t get what I had before, I actually went back down to a nano for my workouts and while I didn’t think get the size I originally wanted this size will work. Since I had to load that I added more songs to my touch which will now be use for music only and my writing. It too doesn’t have all the music my former ipod had but I still have space and when I want to add new songs I can. Thank goodness that is done and I can move on. I had when I don’t have the tools I need. And this only took half a day so I can get back to edits for both Legacy and my friends YA. In other news that made this a better afternoon mail came today (yes like always) and look what I found when I opened my boxes. I ordered the mugs weeks ago and have been waiting patently now my wait is over. Two signed mugs from Kim Harrison. Now I just need to figure out how I’m going to use them. To actually drink from or just on my desk, though I don’t sit at my desk often so we’ll see. Alright I now need to get some work done.
My one of those days started last night at 7:45. I was out on my nightly walk/jog, interval training, when it started to sprinkle. Ok I can handle getting sprinkled or even lightly rained on no big deal. Yeah that’s what I thought. The sprinkle quickly turn into a downpour. I took shelter for a few minutes to see if it would slow down or stop. Not happening more rain fell from the sky. So I had to jog in the downpour home. I was drenched. Every part of me was wet and cold especially when I walked in my house. Thankfully my phone turned out ok but it seems my ipod once it dried out is toast. It worked fine when I got home and dried it off with a towel but at around 10:45 it died. Won’t even hold a charge. I guess apple never prepared for a consumer getting stuck in the rain. Or maybe its the people that make the people the workout armbands that didn’t think outside the box. Anyway so that was last night.
This morning to add to my night I’ve dropped Holly’s food bowel twice. Why is this a big? I rarely drop things sure things will slip out of my hand but I usually catch them before the fall, and dog food isn’t something you want to drop in the first place it makes a mess so dropping it twice I think you get my point. So we’ll see how things go and cross our fingers that the day gets better from here.
Kansas would look good right about now. We are having flood warnings thanks to this storm over head. I have to get out my galoshes, to finish the rest of my errands today.
In the mean time I’m not only working on my edits but I’m bête reading a friends YA too. Granted with all this rain it’s a perfect day to set and read. For my friend I just need to add comments and not edit so I may just work on hers and not mine, I’ve been waist deep in Legacy for the past week that this will be the best distraction I can find. And I can get some ideas on ways to liven up my own writing.
Also stop over to PBD and checkout the latest reviews last week was Bitting Cold this week Kitty Steals the Show.
Yesterday I did a lot of editing, going so far as to print off chapter 5. I haven’t printed out a chapter in years now because I hate having to add the edits back into the document. However this chapter seemed to need an overhaul and that is what it got. The chapter had twenty something pages and while I don’t know how many it has or will have, the chapter will have more needed interaction. It will also use Alexis job to have information she needs. I noticed that I was skipping weeks possibly making the story incoherent. Now the story only has a few gaps in time but I think they make sense. And I don’t think more gaps are needed. It doesn’t make sense for that to happen whereas the others are probable. So now that I’ve deleted a chunk of this chapter I still need to add in a scene and make the other scenes in this chapter flow. This chapter is all about obtaining information.
I hope everyone had a wickedly grand weekend. Enjoy your day.
