Banned from Blogger

Hey everyone!  Sorry for my absence last week.  Hubs and Little Monster were out of town so I took the opportunity to crank out the rest of my edits for my WIP.  So after hours of editing, possible hallucinations, and a sore butt my first round of edits are officially done!!

BUT

Yes, there's a but....

Now it's on to my 2nd round of edits from my 3 crit partners....le sigh....

SO

I am on a Major Editing (Salute -- Major Editing) roll right now, and don't want to lose steam, so I've banned myself from blogger until I can crank out at least the first part of my 2nd round of edits.

My attendance will be sporadic at best, but please know I still love you guys!  But a book won't publish itself on it's own, so I gotta take some action here.

I will leave you with some pearls of wisdom: When you are home alone for a whole week, you may want to maintain contact with the outside world.  By the end of the week, I'm pretty sure I had a Girls Night with two of my main characters.  Complete with pillow fights in our underwear, consuming mass quantities of cookie dough, and watching Beaches.

Hey, as long as there is cookie dough involved, the world is grand, yes? ;)

Hi Abby,


I should be doing he same thing.... I am on my final edit before sending my ms out to crit partners. I still have another eighty pages or so to go. I have been dragging my feet WAY TOO LONG! I wish I can get with the program like you.

CONGRATS on the good work and keep going!

In my giant attempt to write multiple novels in one month, I think that maybe I should do the same as you. Instead I'm using Blogger as an excuse for not writing. ;) Good luck with all the edits!

It's a great idea to ban yourself from blogger--I'm sure you'll get SO much done! Good luck!

Good luck, Abby! I totally understand the need to make more room for writing. I know you're going to rock the Major Editing!

Good luck on your revisions! Cookie dough, huh? Yum! I haven't seen the movie Beaches in forever! Wonder if it is on TV anytime soon?

Michelle Merrill said...

Good luck with all your edits. I'm going through the same thing right now! Between that and a family vacation, I'm taking July off blogger. I'll see you around after that though :)

Good luck! Beaches...I hadn't thought about that flick in a long time.
