Thurs. May 16, 2013: Revisions Continue

Cloudy and mild

Pushed through on revisions yesterday. Realized I put too much emphasis on something that will be a subplot in a future book, but have to cut it back in this book. Came up with a couple of other tweaks I have to layer in. Prepped the next five chapters, and have to work on them today. That will leave the final two chapters, the revised synopsis and back matter for tomorrow.

Mowed the terraced back area yesterday. It looks good. I guess the first mow of the season is always a bit of a shock to the ground, and then the second one starts to look good. I have to do the front soon, but it looks like it wants to rain, so I don’t dare start.

Took the clippings to the dump. Ran library errands at two libraries. Got all the pots back out this morning. Got my next assignments from Confidential Job #1.

Yoga was great this morning. Now, I’ll work with students and get back to work on the revisions.

In my Annabel persona, I talk about “Stepping up to the Plate” on The Writers Vineyard.

Reading Joan Anderson’s A YEAR BY THE SEA and Susan Bender’s EVERYDAY SACRED.
