It's that time again. I don't know if all y'all are getting bored with these, but I'm going to keep doing them until the year's over. I may even do it next year because, hey, it keeps me honest. ;o)
Writing-wise, I didn't. I did spent time off and on all week reading through WIOH looking for errors, and boy-howdy did I find a lot of them. Eight college-rule notebook pages worth of them. :eyeroll: I don't know what the heck my fingers were thinking, but they obviously weren't listening to my brain. (Either that or my brain was sending the wrong signals again.) But I did get that part of the editing process done. Starting today, I'll take my pages of fixes and input them all into the computer so I can send this puppy out to a most wonderful person who offered to proofread it for me. (You know, in case I missed somethings - which is entirely possible.)
Submitting-wise, I didn't do that either. I did, however, spend time doing more research on places to submit to - including ordering a book from a small-publisher to see how the books they put out compare with traditional publishing. It arrived Friday, so their shipping is speedy for what I assume is a POD thing. And looking at the physical book, I must say, I don't see any difference. I'll start reading it as soon as I finish this other book I'm trying to read. That's the true test, I think.
Reading? Well, let's just say I got distracted reading my own stuff, so the advanced copy I got of a fantasy novel from an acquaintance of mine that I started got put on hold until I finished reading WIOH. Now that's done, I can get back to reading. Which is good because Goodreads says I'm 6 books behind on my goal.
In other news, Hubs and I washed the windows that have been driving us nuts out on the sun porch. Once he risked life and limb sitting on the window sill so he could cut away the caulking holding the storm window in place. After we got those suckers out, everything went so much easier. Trust me, chunking out old wasps nests with a sign stake was not the funnest thing I've ever done.
Other than that, the week was pretty non-spectacular. How was yours?
