the final stretch
i'm thankful for not getting food poisoning.
i hope everybody else can say that too.
we ended up going to a vietnamese restaurant, then a long walk because it was around 55 degrees here, then home for pumpkin pie which i actually didn't bake myself.
yesterday it was back to work.
i found out my new editor prefers to receive the manuscript by email, so that's given me several more days to tinker.
the above photo was taken a few days ago.
this was the stage where i tag everything that might need attention. the cards contain reminders of things that need to be inserted. i use the scissors to cut scenes and move them to other chapters where i staple them to the adjoining text.
i hope to send it off wednesday or thursday. then comes the period of waiting and high anxiety since not a soul has seen a word of it.
