I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know what's been going on in my world the last few days.
First of all, there is a new Conversing with Cats up today. Last week I started a new story arc inspired by Crystal, one of my readers, who suggested her girl cats could date my boys. This resulted in a three post story arc involving a secret cat city, a dune buggy, and all you can eat shrimp. Check it out! Today's post is a break from that story, but for those who enjoyed Angel and Blair, they will be back.
As I mentioned in my last post, I managed to complete draft #2 of my WIP Tortoise Love, and I spent two solid days pretty much doing nothing but lugging my giant binder around this past weekend and marking up almost every page. Then I spent more time handwriting out all the new parts I need to add as well as making a list of changes that affect the whole manuscript, like name changes, etc. I was actually sick earlier this week, which sucked, but wasn't a total loss because sitting in bed editing is kind of nice. I feel like I have made a lot of progress and I am hoping by April, I will have it ready to run through my novel critique group.
Finally, I have gone over to Amazon and started researching all the books that were recommended to me last week so I can decide how to use my gift card. I have a feeling this is going to be a very tough decision and will probably end up spending way more than $20. I blame my mother. Instead of giving me an allowance as a child, she told me I could have as many books as I want. Yes, this fed my already raging addiction for reading, but I missed out on those valuable money management lessons an allowance supposedly comes with, and it made me feel entitled to any book I want. I am forever grateful to my mother for this. :)
