Wednesday Walkabout... Part Two

It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.

(I'm bringing along a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)

Walkabout, Week 2:

What a week I've had. A wise person once said, "Men make plans and Heaven laughs." I have lived that saying over the past seven days. I had a schedule all worked out, planned to the last detail. Yep. Didn't happen.

So, Monday night and Tuesday morning I played catch-up. *dum-duh-duh-dum* I have finished all the items on my editor's to-do list (for now)! Is it conceited of me to say that I really, really, really enjoyed rereading the manuscript they are picking up? I hadn't read it in awhile - in fact, I have written quite a few things since then and had forgotten how much fun it was to write.

My stuff is in. I'm taking a few deep breaths and waiting.

According to my reliable sources, the fun is about to begin. In the very near future I should receive a tangled, bloodied mess of a manuscript back from my remarkably intelligent editor along with a long list of things to fix, adjust, tweak, cut, add, etc., etc., etc.

I can't wait. That either makes me masochistic, or it makes me an author. Either way.

No worries, mate!
She'll be apples. (Look that expression up. It's a beaut.)

PS - Don't forget to come back for "I Need Friends" Friday.

(ignore "read more")

I love your site... and your "about me" description. Are any of us normal? :)
