Now that I've finished up the first set of edits for Under the Mistletoe, which were pretty good except for one OH NO! moment that I have now dealt with...
Um, now that I've emailed that document to my wonderful editor who deserves sainthood for dealing with me, I'm back to my newly begun project. Yes, all other wips are shelved for the time being.
For some reason, this new project wants to be written in longhand! I made huge progress on it that first day on the porch swing with the steno pad, but when I sit down to type, it's just not moving along very quickly. Longhand is fine except my handwriting is very poor. Used to be better, back before I spent every waking moment at a keyboard.
I'm determined to look at this in a glass-half-full kind of way.
1. I will re-learn the skill of writing by hand, on paper;
2. It's probably a workout for part of my brain that has atrophied;
3. I'll be using up some of those blank books accumulated since The Year One; and
4. After keying the story into the computer, the paper will be great to start fires with next winter. Spot will be so pleased.
And, hey, if I can keep Spot happy, it's all good, right?
