Hot dog.  I finished the edits and rewrites on draft 6 of my manuscript.  Now, I get to go do whatever the heck I want with the rest of my day. 

Life is good.

  7. Very cool. I think rewrites are even harder than first writes.

  10. Hello Dungeon: Not yet, still in rewrites.

    Hi Samantha: On to draft seven next.

    Howdy mshatch: Are you rewriting those or do you still have to write them? Either way, wishing you tons of fun in the process.

    Becky: Hello, nice to see you here. Thanks for the congrats.

    Hey Porky: It was a planned day off from both jobs. And a fun one at that. Stayed in my jams until the afternoon.

    Hi Patti: It sure was nice ending the work day on the last page.

    Hello Donea Lee: Thanks.

    Hi Donna: Thanks for stopping by, so nice to see you here.

    Hey Carol: I've been seeing your smiling face about and had to stop by your blog and become a reader. Nice to meet you.

    Thanks, Tara: I enjoy rewriting because it's a different kind of play. New things unfold and it's like a giant puzzle. I fancy puzzles.

    Hello Maria: I sure did, it was very nice to have off from both jobs.

    HiYa James: I realized when I hit Christian with extra snowballs, that I should have gotten you as well. Sending you some snow, free shipping.

    Thanks, Terri. It's great to meet you as well. I look forward to reading more about you in your blog.

  12. Congrats, Ivy. That's a lot of drafts. Are you an outliner or a discovery writer?

  13. Hey Lee: This book was originally for screen writing class. My teacher had us write three parts, outline first, then fill in the meat. After the semester, I turned it into a book.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  16. I like coming to this blog, but I'm gaining weight just looking at the goodies. It's a good feeling to be done with a book, even if you might go through it again and again.
