Celebrate the Small Things 20-11-15
This post is part of Lexa Cain's bloghop, 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?
I finished my revision last night. I think I still need to go through and make a few more tiny tweaks, but the bulk is done, I think. I just really need a fresh set of eyes over it to be sure I've addressed all the problem areas. I know November is the worst month to be asking this, but does anyone have time to do a full MS read before the end of the month? I'm happy to read for you in return, now or any time in the future.
I have a busy weekend ahead of me. Tonight I'm going to a gig with a friend. It's an old punk band from the '70s that I'm not a huge fan of, but she is. It should be fun, even if I'm not in love with the band. Then tomorrow I'm helping out my son's Scout troop by working the bar at the stadium during the Elton John concert. Apparently that's how the Scouts fundraise.... When I volunteered I thought it would be a few hours, but it turns out it's a full 7 hour shift! Goodbye Saturday.
And that's about it for this week. Do let me know if you have time to read for me. I'd REALLY appreciate it. After so many rounds of revision, I'm not sure which parts really work and which I just think work because I know what was there three revision ago.
What are you celebrating this week?

Congrats on finishing the revision. Good luck with the MS. I know how hard it is when you can't tell if it works.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the manuscript and the busy weekend.ReplyDelete
Wow, I'd much rather go to the EJ concert than see punk rockers. I hope you get to hear some of it from your concession stand. Sorry I can't help with the ms. I'm laser focused on finishing revisions this month. Even then, mine isn't really "done," but at least it's a big step closer. (I'm soooo sick of this book...)ReplyDelete
Congrats on finishing your revisions! If I wasn't going back to work next week I would help you out, bad timing I guess! Have a great weekend :)ReplyDelete
Congratulations on finishing your revision. That must be wonderful closure!ReplyDelete
Hopping over from Lexa's CTST linky. Way to go on the revisions! I also wish that I could help, but I find it difficult to read anything of great length. I have the attention spam of a 2-year. Best of luck to you and have a blessed Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
