Fini and Monday's To Do

Before I bring you Monday's regularly scheduled to do list, I have to share with you a little message of joy... I finished the rough draft of DASH! Oh yeah! Who rocks? Now granted, I would actually rock more had I achieved wordcount on the silly thing, but who's counting, really? (Please don't say the people at HQ and ruin my fantasy, really.) Some people go over, I go under. But I have a gazillion things to add, so it's all good. Right now, I'm going over it and making notes and adding a scene here and there if I feel up to writing it. Mostly notes though. Then I will go back and add. But the important thing is that it's done!!! The fun part has begun!

Also, an editor would like to see some major changes in LIPS pre-acquisition so that is going to have to be a priority, as well.


Now without further ado, Monday's weekly to do!

Hooray that Dash draft is finished but even bigger hooray about LIPS. Was this one of the eds who lost it the first time around?

Woot on all accounts! Congrats on finishing the draft! I know how much you wanted that!

Rachel Vincent said...

Yea! Congratulations! I'm jealous. ;-)

Good on you, babe! I'm so glad you stuck it out -- that's hard to do, not even counting all the curve balls your life has thrown at you lately. Mega-major kudos, and I can't wait to read it <HINT>!

P.S. Are you sure that mentor person isn't Jesus Christ? Or is it like the Beatles, and s/he is "Bigger than Jesus"? ;?) I am in awe of you, BTW. Keep us posted!
