Back to Work

Last Saturday I had that all-important chat with my final critiquer. It lasted for maybe three or four hours as she scrolled through my manuscript, giving me her insights. I frantically took notes, since she's that good and I pay careful attention to her comments.

The tax stuff is over, and I've even put most of the files away, resolving to keep better tabs on my paperwork this year so next year's paper-gathering doesn't take so long. It's a yearly resolution. Somehow, I still spend a couple of days making sure I have all the records I need.

I've made the requisite separate trips to town to mail my taxes and shop and get my temple recommend renewed. When I locate the Jiffy-Lube coupon, I'll be back down the hill to have car maintenance done, but that can wait until next week.

Now I have six pages of scribbles to decipher and digest and use to tweak my manuscript. I may have to re-write a few scenes to deepen them. Amazingly, my friend didn't suggest any scene cuts. She liked the one I was having second thoughts about. Hurray!

All right. Back to work.
