Sometimes I Wish I Were My Cat

Right now, my cat Jake is asleep on my copy of the edited MS for Magellan’s Witch. I wish I was him. Sleeping with no cares. He looks so comfy.

Anyway, I’m done going through the MS for the changes. Tomorrow I’ll do a read through to make sure I’ve hit everything.

I slept until 8:30 this morning, skipped my RWA meeting, had to, rats. And worked from 9:00 to 3:00 when I had to take my son to his soccer game. I bought us pizza on the way home and have been working since about 6:30. I took a few breaks, once to scrub some paper off the windows (left over, I’m ashamed to admit, from when they were installed) and, no I DO NOT want to talk about why I so desperately needed to scrape old labels off the windows right then, and another break to make my son S’mores for breakfast. Yeah, I’m a Bad Mom. My son had chocolate, marshmallows and Graham crackers for breakfast. For a while I was frantically wracking my brain to figure out how to put my villain into this one scene and I swear, I was doing the patented Sandy Schwab Head: Desk move for way too long. Then I got up to pick up the dog and he licked me (ick! I wish he wouldn’t do that) and suddenly I knew how to do it. So I went back and fixed that scene which was the last major fix, I think.

Now off to bed.

    I have to admit the *head desk* is not an original move of mine, rather I picked it up from somebody else. But the Argh! Argh! Argh! is pure Schwab. 🙂

    Good luck for the revisions!

    Thanks for the good wishes, Sandy. I usually just let out with a single argh!!! but I’ve often been tempted to go with three. Maybe I’ll try it sometime.
