I know, I know, I was so excited to get started and I'm already behind? But I have some pretty good reasons as to why.
I'm still not done with reading the manuscript. I'm about half way there. It's one thing to read a mass market paperback. That is easy to carry around. But lugging around 300 pages of printer paper is not as easy, even if I've broken it up into four parts.
Also, Sundays are typically my day to do writerly things, but this last weekend we hit the Home and Garden Show. After hours of walking I came away with a new pillow, a garden gopher, a new set of earrings and a cute little owl statue.
I've wanted an owl like this since I saw a similar one on Things I Yell At You
I was also reading a book on editing, which I hoped would get me in the mood. But the book was OK, and 98% of the stuff they suggested you do to edit your fiction novel was stuff that I already knew to do. So, meh.
So these are the foremost reasons as to why I'm behind on my revision process. Still, no rush I guess.
Anyone else behind on their goals?
Also, Al from Publish or Perish awarded me The Sunshine Award, which was awfully nice of him.
I'll be passing this on to Sonshine Thoughts (because it's fitting, right?)
And AchingHope (who is hilarious)
