Woooo! Last week marked the halfway point in the year!
Okay, I'm not really that excited, but exclamation points are easy to type to convey an excitement I can't quite manage this morning.
So, last week... Yeah, it was a week. But yesterday was so over the top for me that it'll take me a minute to remember what else happened.
Yesterday. First thing, I went outside, coated myself with Deep Woods Cutter, and attacked some more grapevines. I think I got them all this time. Then I showered and chilled out. Not too long before noon, the Kid called to chat - which was cool. (Everything's good with her, btw.) About 15 minutes in on what would probably be our usual hour phone call, another call beeps in. I thought it might be a telemarketer, but rather than ignore it, I checked the caller ID. It was my neighbor. Rather than go into a bunch of stuff I have no right posting on the webs, suffice it to say, after all was handled, Hubs and I were tired. And my day where I had promised to work all day was shot to hell. Worth it, but still. I did get one chapter edited first thing, so I got that going for me. Which is nice.
Then last night, someone somewhere in the neighborhood decided to celebrate our nation's birth a week early. It sounded like a reenactment of the battle in the War of 1812 about which Francis Scott Key wrote what would become our national anthem. They held showings at 9:30, 10:30, 11:30, and midnight.
For some reason, I woke up at 4am this morning, so today ain't looking too awfully productive either.
I am up to about 30% of WIOH proofed, so I must've done some of that last week. I probably won't make the July 1st deadline of having this back to the editor. I have until mid-August to get this done, though. I know I wrote a little in Natural Causes. And I read some of my dystopian to see if I still think it's as viable as I used to. The answer is 'yes' but it needs a boatload of work to get it up to publishable.
I read some stuff. Helped a friend by doing some beta reading. Watched some senior golf - which was a nice change. I'm rooting for Tom Watson. Nothing else comes to mind. I know I did other stuff, but everything blurs together after a while.
What's up in your world?
