Okay, so I said I would juggle Natural Causes and Wish Hits the Fan. Umm, yeah, that didn't happen. Not yet anyway. But I have been busting my hump editing Natural Causes. 187 pages of line editing done in 4 days. I should have that done today and jump into the big fixes my editor suggested. That should take another couple of days. Which means I could have this back to her like Thursday. Instead of Sunday.
Yeah, I knew I could do it if I applied myself. It's the applying myself thing that hangs me up sometimes.
Of course, it also means that I haven't done any reading. And virtually no marketing. :shrug: Things get set aside when I'm in deadline mode.
Another side-effect of editing full steam is that I sometimes am not quite right in the head. Lucky for me, Hubs knows this. He walked into the office last night, and I started making incoherent noises at him. He said, "Editing insanity?" Yup. He knows. The next time he came in, I started with the noises again and then we did this whole schtick together. Nice respite from the editing slog.
Anyway, don't expect deep insights from me this week. Unless I have a flash of brilliance that makes it past the editing insanity.
