Well, it was a busy week here at Sanderson Acres (wholly own subsidiary of Sanderson, Inc. LLC.) despite the fact that I don't really feel like I did anything.
Writing... No new words, but a lot of writerly things were going on. I did some polishing work on Unequal to get it ready for AWE (Awesome Wonderful Editor, for the new people). I set up the print version of Sleeping Ugly, got it loaded and approved, and ordered a proof copy. I set up the print version of Early Grave (finally) and got it loaded on Friday. Yesterday, I got the notification there were some issues, which I addressed and then re-uploaded. We'll see what the review is like today. I'll either address them or ignore them today depending on their level of crucialness. (Like a potential blurriness in cover details - which I intentionally made kind of blurry, so no big deal. The fonts are clear and crisp. The old lady in her wheelchair? Hazy on purpose.) We'll see how the proof looks once I get it. :shrug:
I also began the slog to update all the backmatter of all my books to show that I now have 12 books published. It's no big deal either. Open the file, add in the back matter, save. Go to Amazon, upload new file, go through their stuff, click publish. DE, FG, and EG are done. I was a toad yesterday, but I'll get to the rest of them today.
Amazon found one typo in FG that neither it nor I had found before, so it's all good. I left the H out of enthralled in one spot. Derp. It's fixed in the ebook. Print books do not get fixed. The expense of new proofs every time I changed backmatter or fixed a typo would wreck me.
I read a bunch.
We went fishing one afternoon. Nothing exciting to report. I caught a little bass and Hubs caught a couple little punkinseeds. It was just nice to be at the lake.
Now that my back is mostly normal again, I'm back to exercising. I'm sticking to walking for the most part. The other exercising, I'm doing a little bit of. Don't want to push it. Still, I managed to get back to the weight I was at before the back thing hit. 180.4. Next stop, 179 point something. I haven't seen a seven in that position on the scale in probably ten years.
The drought is over here. Not officially because the weather people do love to clench onto their pet calamities. But since it's raining just about every day, and the grass is all green, and the weeds are growing like, well, weeds, I'm declaring it over. Hubs mowed and already it's almost time to mow again. He also sprayed the driveway weeds with a vinegar and Dawn solution. I really have to weed the flower beds this week sometime.
I can't believe the week ahead is the last week of August. Where did all those weeks go?
Your turn. How did your week that was go?
