Well, here we are again. Another Sunday in 2022. Almost exactly two years from the start of this crap. Two years ago last week was when I was out in the pouring rain amidst the lunatic fringe, trying to find toilet paper, and I locked my keys in my car. Two years ago this coming week was the circus of trying to get Owl from up there to down here. Blerg.
Anyway, that was then and this is now.
I finished inputting my beta notes on Monday. Since then, I've spent every day this week going through SSS with a fine-toothed comb and really trying to catch every little thing. 110K words worth of every little thing. I'm up to page 219 out of 377 now. 158 pages left to go. I did 81 pages yesterday, with brief breaks for food, baking, and a walk. Nothing else much is getting accomplished, but hey, the book is nearer to publication every day.
I also wrote like 4000 words on SCIU 4 early in the week before I started pushing to get SSS done. And I reworked my blurb yesterday morning. Busy busy busy. I tried editing and writing on the same day, and I am totally not up to that speed yet. I'll keep trying, though. Just not this week because I want... no, I need to get this done.
In reading news, I finished one book last Saturday and read most of another book before I leapt into the deep proofreading on Tuesday. I'll read when this manuscript is published.
On the baking/cooking front, I made a roast chicken, pizza, my version of Mexican pizza, and yesterday I did an Applesauce Coffee Cake. Yum.
In activity news, I did something active 5 out of 7 days. Mostly it was walking. I put over 4 miles on my legs this week, which is about half of what I've done so far this year. Woohoo. No weight check. The scale and I aren't friends these days.
That's about it. Time for me to get back to proofing. I proof from early morning until lunch and then I veg until about 3 then it's back to proofing until dinner. I eat then I proof. Then I take a break for a walk. Then I proof until about an hour before bed. I'll be so happy when this is over and the book is published.
How was your week?
