Hey all! I'm really quite proud that I've kept this up for seven Sundays in a row. Go me!
Anyway, here's what I did last week...
I watched a lot of Olympics.
But seriously, I did get some other things accomplished.
For instance, I swapped out my old keyboard for this one I had in my BIG BOX OF ELECTRONICAL THINGS. It's actually the keyboard that came with my computer 4 years ago, but I liked the Logistics keyboard I ordered better than this Lenovo one, so I used that. Now I'm on this, and kinda remembering why I used the other one. This one's keys are closer together and the spacebar is LOUD. Sheesh. But it's better than using the old keyboard that had most of its letters rubbed off. And since I used the backspace key so much, it was starting to squeak.
Oh, and I read a shit-ton of books. I was just a reading machine this past week with 5 books read and 21 for the year. Woohoo!
I re-re-revised my query letter for Djinnocide with the help of a couple friends. And yesterday, I sent out the first couple with the new and totally awesome wordage. Cross your fingers!
Let's see... what else... Oh yeah, the reason why I had the opportunity to read a lot - and probably part of the reason why the letters were rubbed off my old keyboard...
I finished that rewrite! And I did it a couple days ahead of schedule. It tops out at around 76K. I've sent it to my Kindle so I can start reading through it and noting flaws. It's not done - but hey, I rewrote 76K words between 1/3 and 2/11! Yay!
And lastly, but not leastly, I started the planning and some early writing on my next book - called Djinn 3, for now. Yeah, I know... I should get the first one going before I write more, but I can't help myself. I want to play in Jo's world for a while again, so that's what I'm gonna do. So there. =op
What happened in your world last week?
Remember, you can talk about whatever you want, but try to find something positive - even if it's only I managed to keep my cat alive for another week. (Some days with Max is easier than others but despite his malaise last week, he turned it around and is back to his demanding and drooly self this week. That darned cat.)
