It’s amazing. I’m going through this 90,000 word book and I’m changing the repeated words (my speciality of errors when writing,) picking up any typos I missed on the other zillion read-throughs, and chopping off the occasional meaningless add-on sentences. I didn't think I’d taken that much out, and then I suddenly noticed the manuscript had gone down by 3 pages! 3 whole pages! Yikes. Soon adds up.
So, yes, another work day here today. I admire writers who can keep it to office hours and treat it as a job with regular boundaries. Alas I couldn't do that in my regular jobs LOL so I’m hopeless with this one, where I am master of my own destiny. It is on my list of things to change in the New Year. I want to regain my weekends and spend at least one whole day per weekend out with the Man of the House. As it is I usually work for a half day on both Saturday and Sunday and then we break free.
We’ve actually booked a few days off, the week after next. Miracle of miracles. We haven’t been away in ages and now we're doubling up and having a couple of days shopping in the beautiful city of York, with an overnighter in a hotel to celebrate my new contract. I can’t wait!
Here’s a super link courtesy of Zaz. If you love Buffy, M/M sexuality, Spike/Angel slash fiction or the fandabidozie Nine Inch Nails, you have to go here and download the viddie for CLOSER LOL. I suppose I’d better add all the usual disclaimers: adult content, explicit images of sexy men, arousing lyrics, etc etc. ;-))
That’s about it for now. It's freezing cold here in the north of England, as I shall now demonstrate by showing you a piccie of our fireguard….
