This whole past week went by in a smear. Sitting here this morning, I was all like 'WTF? It's Sunday again?' and sat wondering exactly what I did last week.
I'm almost done with the first round of edits notes for Wrongful Termination. I made these notes back in December, if I remember correctly - when I was waiting for things to start moving with Dying Embers. They're pretty detailed and helpful - when I can read my own handwriting - but I learned so much from editing DE that I know I need to go back and start the whole thing over for WT. I'll finish the last two pages of notes today and maybe give myself a couple days away from WT. I can always work on inputting the edit notes for Bloodflow.
I read some stuff. Not a lot of stuff, mind you, but some. I gave up trying to read The French Connection. I just wasn't in the place where a true-life police procedural from the '70s was holding my interest. I switched over to a Mack Bolan action novel. That was awesome. Then I read a novella that was really beautifully written, but kind of disappointing in its shortness. I could've read volumes about that world. It was like being shown the buffet at Bellagio and then being told you can only take one small plate of awesome, tasty food.
My promo postcards came in, but my books - which were on a truck headed this way on Friday - never made it. To cut UPS some slack, the roads back in here are freak-nasty. I finally put on my big-girl panties and drove to Walmart yesterday, so I know. Of course, I have a little front wheel drive trooper of a car and UPS has a big-ass boat of a truck. I don't blame him. I just want my freakin' books so I can have a contest and mail these suckers out to people.
I spent some time trying to figure out MailChimp so I can offer all y'all a newsletter to sign up for. I tried reading the tutorial yesterday, but it was all gobbledy gook in my head, so I gave up - again. I'll figure it out eventually. I just need to be in a mental place for learning new stuff. I so ain't there this weekend.
Also, I took some bird pictures - some of which I posted here and others over on FB.
Your turn. How'd things go in your world last week?
