Celebrate the Small Things 27-11-15
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 just got my MS back from one of my readers and she doesn't seem to think there are any big issues. I haven't finished reading through her notes yet, but it doesn't sound like there are going to be big things to fix. Although I did have an idea last night about a section I can easily cut out now that I changed the ending. It won't cut the word-count a lot, but it will trim a thousand or so words...
I have nothing planned for the weekend which makes a nice change. Well, except for presenting a screening and moderating a Q & A with the filmmakers on Sunday night. But that should be fun.
Can you believe it's almost December? Only a few more weeks before we break for Christmas. And boy am I looking forward to that! I must remember to book a holiday mid-year next year. It's been far too long since I had any time off and I need a break.
What are you celebrating this week?

It's good hat your reader didn't report any big issues. Good luck with cutting those thousand words. Just make sure nothing that happens is mentioned later. I always worry about then in my books.ReplyDelete
How's the weather in NZ? Are you going to enjoy a nice, warm Christmas break? :)
Good to hear you got some positive (and useful) feedback.ReplyDelete
You're presenting a screening and moderating? This new job of yours sounds so fun and exciting. I bet you meet a lot of interesting people. Glad to hear the ms is in good shape overall, and finding 1000 words to cut is certainly better than nothing. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
