I was productive yesterday! I'm nowhere near being done, but I made it through thirteen chapters and I'm actually happy with my first page.
Now for the fun part -- we're going to Mexico City tomorrow. Have I mentioned how much I love last minute trips? We found out last week that Ibis' family is having a party of some sort on Saturday but we didn't decide until Tuesday that we were actually going.
The part I'm just thrilled about is I really want to have my edits done and sent to my proofreader (my mom) before we go. If you're keeping track, that means I need to finish the rest of the edits in one more day. Fortunately we're leaving in the evening.
Technically I can still make changes after she looks at it -- it's not like I have to seal it and mark it complete just because she gives me the go-ahead -- but I'd really, really like to be done with it. Several people have given me the wise advice to give myself some distance from it, blah blah, but I have given it distance. This is mainly copy edits, with a few swappings of telling for showing. (Does that make sense? I hope so -- my brain is full right now.)
I'm sorry if this post is a bit rambling. I'm writing it Tuesday night after ten hours of editing and I think I'm a bit loopy right now. So, any funny editing stories you'd like to share?
Oh, and in case you heard about it -- Tropical Storm Andrés has come and gone. It rained and blew all day Monday, then things were back to normal by Tuesday afternoon.
