THE PERFECT DAY




Today’s a rainy day. A perfect day to curl up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate (don’t forget the whipped cream!) and a good book. The perfect day to walk the dog and get some thinking done (we both love to walk in the rain). The perfect day to take a nap.

For me, today is the day I haul out my manuscript that has been resting for a month. I plan to read it aloud and flag lines, paragraphs and pages that need more work before I foist it off on my first reader, the intrepid Kelly Fineman.

I’m excited and a little nervous but armed with orange sticky notes, green post it tabs and a red pen, I believe I’m up to the task.

Wish me luck.

Oh, I'm going all right. I'm hoping to keep my good spirits and sanity at the same time. So far so good. The manuscript isn't as good as I'd like but not as bad as I'd feared. I'm going to be polishing up a storm.

I will not wish you luck, because I do not believe you need it. Instead, I wish you TIME.

XO,

And patience. Don't forget patience. And perserverance.
