I skipped my last class and Spring Break came a day early!!!
Sadly, I'm not going anywhere over the break this year. Not even a weird trip to Maryland, like last year. I'm not really sad about it--I have too much to do over the break to think about going anywhere.
There's the requisite studying and catching up and getting ahead, but then I also have Plans.
I told my CP's this and tweeted it, but I'll blog it too:
Staring Thursday, March 08, I pledge to make my fullest attempt to do first-pass revisions on my entire novel, being 86k+, in 11 days.
It's crazy times, I know, but the good thing is there are only 3 really major plot events that have to change, and the ripple effects from them. Unfortunately, one of them is in the beginning of the book, so that's a lot of ripples.
Anyway, this is my first time revising and editing a novel, so I have no idea what to expect. I've gotten Scrivener all pimped out with my draft and scene cards and all kinds of stuff. So far I like working in it. Makes deleting shizz a lot easier, as well as appealing to my visual and liner nature.
As I was sitting down to type this, the old TV in the office made a really loud cracking sound. I don't know what the eff it was. It still works just fine. (GREMLINS.)
Thanks to Amazon Prime and a media streamer/Blue Ray player we got for Christmas, hubby and I are watching all of the Star Trek series from the beginning. Starting, of course, with The Next Generation. It's pure geeky bliss. Every time I hear that opening, I'm transported back to being a little kid. Seriously, some of my earliest memories are of watching Star Trek.
I have 3 interviews next week for a nurse extern summer job. I'm nervous as hell.
I think "complexes" should be a verb, as in "That complexes me." Nice ring, huh?
I forgot how hungry I am when I'm at home and not thinking about school constantly. In related news, I have no snacks.
Hmmm....That's it, I think. I hope you are well, that Spring is springing, and that you find a $20 bill in a bush.
