So, what am I celebrating this week?
It's the weekend! I think that's worth a celebration.
After an incredibly stressful weekend last week where my hard drive decided to die hours before I sent a revision to my agents, I'm looking forward to a rather more relaxing time this weekend.
Thankfully, I managed to retrieve (well, my partner actually did all the hard work) all my files and I didn't end up having to rewrite the 10K I'd done over the two days between my computer's last big back up and the crash. So I was only 1 day late sending in my MS.
This week I've started work on the second revision for my agents and so far it's going well. Although I keep adding words and it's already a long book for YA. I foresee a round of rather ruthless cutting at the end of the revising process. Although at this stage, I really don't know where I'll be able to cut 10-15K without losing some key story.
I'm going out with a friend from work tomorrow night. We're having dinner, then going to a play and then to her friend's place to watch the big fireworks display for Guy Fawkes. I'm looking forward to it because this friend is one of those magical people who instantly make anything more fun. She's one of my favorite people to hang out with because anything we end up doing is an event. Even just eating lunch together.
Do you have anyone in your life like that?
