A couple scattered notes:
Love all the theories and conversations in the comments, was reading them at work Friday and my coworkers kept asking me if I was okay. Not a lot of reasons for any of us to smile at that job, so they weren't really sure what to make of my good mood! You guys are amazing.
Speaking of the job, I had a way out and chose not to take it. Misguided obligation, partly. Bad timing mostly. Good things come to those who wait and wait. Will keep my eyes open and keep pressing on.
Reached out to the last beta this weekend (last week? time is funny). I knew when I handed the story out that my betas were going through some crazy times themselves, so I wasn't expecting a quick turnaround from any of them. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back! They're worth their weight in gold, so thanks for waiting with me. ♥
Three months later I almost feel like writing again. Still a lot of dead-ends on most of my other projects (my three choices are all rewrites--I don't think I'm ever getting out of revision hell!), but I'd like to at least get back into the swing of things by editing Andrew & Renee's story. It's so long it'd probably have to get posted in pieces, but it could be fun. I'll have part of it done by
There was more, but I forgot it. Spent this weekend out of town helping the younger sis move for grad school, so I'm a little braindead right now.
**eta: Thursday. Was editing first part, then realized there's a continuity error in the story due to the rewrites between that story and this draft of the series. Couldn't remember where in the books the change happened so spent three hours scouring books 1 & 2 looking for that one line and then got caught up trying to add more kiss scenes to book 3. Blame the Yuengling. On the bright side, I found the line, so we're on track again. fml.
Blanket is still slow going, mostly because I haven't made as much time to work on it. It's big enough now that it's too awkward to work on it at work, and working on it at home means not using my hands for anything else for a couple hours. The bands are starting to get uneven because I have an obsession with pulling the yarn tighter than it should be. Not overly concerned though, since the blanket's just for me and I expect wear & tear over time to help loosen it up some. ♥ Sar, haven't tried a Knitting Knook yet, figure it's better to master crochet first before moving on to anything else. Besides, scarves make me feel like I'm choking, so I'd end up making scarves that no one would ever wear..... :O One day I'll try it, though!
