Still editing.

Friday, I was exhausted & got to work a bit late, but Tony opened almost on-time so that was OK. Worked late re-training the new guy on closing procedures because everyone else had confused him utterly. Home. No 15-minutes.

Slept through Saturday except for a little bit at the end (when I got up to eat some home-made pizza; yum). Also ignored my email. I did watch some of Wanted on cable. I might need to rent that and see the whole thing. Kinda interesting and I'd meant to see it while it was in the theaters. I also need to get around to reading the comic. I've heard it's VERY different.

Worked Sunday at the Picnic; no 15-minutes, but I did spend 2 hours on a kind of painful edit. The piece was well-written, just occasional ESL mistakes, but frankly that's the hardest kind because I have to stay REALLY alert to catch all the little problems. So it took me til 4am. *sigh*

Monday, slept all day, got up for TV & dinner. Red Sox got creamed. Sad. Did my 15-minutes after Castle (DUDEMUSE FTW!), writing down a bunch of books I'd chucked into bin #6, and scrounging around to add more. It's SO FRIGGIN' HARD to add books I haven't read but really want to read, dammit!

More editing! RAR!

Back on 3/29/2011, I wrote 1,259 words on part 1 of a story I'm calling "Slumber." Tonight I wrote 1,899 words for part 2. It's terrible, but I really need to finish it, so I'm applying the 15-minute rule to writing, as in, even if I only write a paragraph or two, it's a paragraph or two more than I had before. And it's a paragraph or two more than a blank page. And it's working, surprisingly enough.

Glad you've been able to work and to keep plugging at the 15-minutes tasks. I think applying it to writing is a genius move and I'm excited for you to be writing, even if you feel that it's crap.

You are an awesome cheerleader, have I told you that?

Thank you so much!

I'm pretty psyched to be writing too, surprisingly enough.

No surprise at all.

I'm glad the cheerleading is good for you. I often feel bad that there's not more I can do, from waving a magic wand and making it better to just showing up more. I'm totally impressed with how you're managing really daunting obstacles and I think you're awesome, so anything I actually can contribute to that process, it's yours.
