Celebrate the Small Things 21-8-20

This post is part of Lexa Cain's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to sign up!

What am I celebrating this week?

It's the weekend!

It's been one of those really long weeks at work - busy, but not busy with really interesting stuff.  So I'm looking forward to the weekend.  I have virtually nothing planned so once the chores are all done, I plan to read and write and go to the movies.  Maybe do some cooking...

I've had some more feedback on Standing Too Close and it's becoming clear to me the problem isn't the ending after all.  It's actually toward the middle.  So I'm mulling over what I can do there to try and strengthen it.  I have to be able to do it reasonably efficiently because I don't have a lot of wriggle-room with word count like I did when I dove into revisions last time.  I can probably only afford to add another 5K at the most.

I've given myself a timeline to get this book finished and to start querying it, so I need to get working.  Otherwise I won't be able to write the new, shiny idea during NaNo in November...

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. (I can comment again! Google prefers Google Chrome. Which I should have figured.)

    Hope you can figure out what the middle section needs. I had a busy week without really doing interesting stuff, too. I have a different schedule next week. Hopefully more interesting results!

  2. I'm so curious about these revisions :). Good luck!
