Celebrate the Small Things 21-4-17
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 the weekend again! And Tuesday is a public holiday, so it's almost another long weekend.
It hasn't been as productive a week as I hoped, partly because I'm anxious as heck about the house selling. Interest has not been nearly as high as I was led to believe it would be in this market and now I'm starting to freak out that it won't sell and I'll have to sell the new house before we even move in! My realtor assures me that won't happen, but I'm still anxious.
But on the plus side, I have almost finished editing the project I had hoped to get finished about three weeks ago. I've managed to cut about 3K, but still need to cut about 1K more to get it to the length the publisher I want to send it to is looking for. I'm not cut out for 70K novels! Mine all end up hovering around the 90K mark, even when I try to write as lean as I can and go back to cut out all my crutch and filter words.
I'm waiting for my ghostwriting partner to get back to me so we can move on to the next step with that project. But it's nice to have had a week away from it and to focus on my own stories for a bit.
The kids are on vacation from school and I had two days off to spend with them this week as well as the long weekend. We didn't get up to too much except multiple library visits, but we did see the Lego Batman Movie…
What are you celebrating this week?
