I spent yesterday doing a final polish on Nita’s book including a lunch non-break at my diner where I ate comfort food and edited at the same time. I’m a multi-tasker, I can do that.
Today, Nita went to NYC via the internet, and I am back to digging through my old WiPs to see if I can find the chunk of You Again I lost. I’m bitter about that, I remember the stuff I wrote and it really opened up the book. Damn it. Still, the key fact here is . . .
I FINISHED A BOOK.
Yeah, it’ll need more rewrites, but by damn, it’s a whole book.
In other news, the Eastern US, especially New England, is about to get pounded by the split in the polar vortex, so I may be without power. If the blog suddenly goes silent, it’s not because I died (probably). Currently socking myself in with power packs, firewood, bottled water, and three dogs, and praying the power does not go out because my pipes will freeze.
I shoulda moved to Florida, not New Jersey.
