Celebrate the Small Things 13-11-15

This post is part of Lexa Cain'sbloghop, Celebrate the Small Things(Lexa has just taken it over from VikLit who has hosted it for the last 2 years). Head on over there to join up!

So, what am I celebrating this week?

My revisions are going well.  I'm not entirely sure I'm getting everything 100% right yet, but I figure I'll do another pass through once I finish this round.  I'm up around 92K in terms of words which is long for YA, so I'm going to need to find some places to slash words if possible.  Not sure if it will be possible though...

It's been a busy week at work.  I was at a course Monday and half of Tuesday, which was interesting, but of course the work piles up when you're out of the office.  We had a new person start on Monday which is going to take some of the pressure off the team, but of course we need to train her so she will be able to do all the things she needs to do.  But so far she seems to be working out well.

Looking forward to the weekend.  Tomorrow we are going up the coast to see my friend.  Hoping the weather improves because winter seems to have decided to make a reappearance which is not making me at all happy.  Would be nice if the sun came out so we can do some outdoor things while we're up at the beach.

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. Good luck with your revisions. Have a great weekend, I hope the sun shines for you.

  2. Good going on the revisions! I once had to cut 30% from an MG novel. Never again. I'm glad your work has a new member, sounds like you need it. I hope you enjoy your weekend trip and get to sunbathe! :)

  3. Hope revisions and training the new coworker go well. And whether or not there's sun, enjoy your trip.

  4. Hope your revisions continue to go well, and the sun is always shining where I am. I'll be sure to send some of it your way.

  5. Keep going with the revisions and I hope you find a lot to hack. I hate to hack! :(

    Enjoy the sunshine, too


  6. It's great that your revisions are going well. I'm sure getting help at work will be nice, too. Hope you get lots of sunshine this weekend!

  7. Hey Kate,

    "Break a keyboard" with those revisions.. if your 92k is too much, have you let any Beta readers at the ms yet?

    They'll hopefully be able to tell you where the "belly fat" is :)

    If not, have you read the whole ms yourself lately? Food for cutting thoughts!
