This post is part of Lexa Cain's bloghop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!
So what am I celebrating this week?
It's one of those weeks when it's difficult to find things to celebrate, a week where one piece of bad news follows another. But this bloghop isn't called 'Whinge About The Things Outside Your Control', so I won't go into the various tragedies that have punctuated my week.
We're supposed to be celebrating and no matter how terrible things get, if you look hard enough, there is always something to celebrate.
I have revised 18 chapters of Sam and Amy. The terrible section I thought dragged the whole middle of the book down turned out to be much shorter than I remember it being, and much less draggy. I feel like it's still a little too long at 3 chapters, but it's better than the five I had before. And once I finish the rest of the book, I think I may be able to go back and cut that down even further. I'm not sure Sam needs to articulate so much of his story. Amy does, because what she says in this section is crucial to things that happen later in the book, but I think a lot of Sam's stuff can probably get folded into other places. Maybe.
And… Well, I'll celebrate cake. The accountant at work had a birthday this week and we got to eat some particularly delicious cake.
What are you celebrating this week?
