Celebrate The Small Things 21-2-14
This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!
So, what am I celebrating this week?
Things at work seem to be settling down a little (famous last words) and I've only had one person resign this week. Well, two, but one of them was just because her work visa expires soon and I knew that was coming. I still need to find a chef, but my FOH team is pulling together and I've done some good interviews which I hope will turn into some great staff.
I got some positive writing feedback from a pro and am excited about diving into a revision of one of my books based on her comments. It always feels daunting, but in reality, I think adding maybe two or three chapters to my existing book will do it. I have some ideas already, but have to get through my current revision before I can start.
The Arts Festival starts here tonight, and I'm looking forward to seeing some fantastic shows. I'm especially excited about getting to see The Tiger Lillies again. They're such a great band. If you haven't heard of them, take a look at this....
I'm 7 chapters away from finishing my first round of revising on Taillights and I'm at the point where I can't really tell if I've improved the book or wrecked it entirely. I hope to be done with it by the end of next week, so I can send it off to some people to read (anyone want to read a contemporary NA for me?) and critique. I'm hoping I that I can get revisions done on my other book while I'm waiting for my readers to get back to me.
Then maybe I can finish the new book I started in about May last year....
What are you celebrating this week?
