Wednesday Worthy

It’s Hump Day! I’m in a good mood now that I have sent off Caged Magic to the proofreader. I worked four straight days on that puppy and was getting a tad obsession…making changes here and there…

Here and there? <<Wizard shouts in the background.>> You wouldn’t stop rewriting every damned word!

Ignore him, he’s cranky because I refused to make the brownie mix in the cupboard. I told him I was already too fat for my dress and frankly, he didn’t try hard enough to disagree.

So what was I talking about? OH! So, yeah, I finally realized that I’m was incapable of doing a straight read through of the manuscript to make sure nothing weird worked it’s way into the pages because I kept revising. So…I pried if out of my slightly resistant hands…

Slightly???? <<Wizard yells helpfully>> It took the freaking jaws of life!  

Yeah, see if I make him brownies now. Men! Anyway after much careful thought and consideration…okay fine! I gave in, realized the book will never be perfect and sent it off to the proofreader before I rewrote the entire thing again. But if she finds a disaster in there (trust me–it’s possible with all the revising and reformatting things because Microsoft word can be annoying at times), Wizard will NEVER get brownies, that’s all I’m saying :-)

So enough of all that. Let’s move on to our Hump Day Hunk! What do you think of this candidate?

Is he worthy?

    LOL, you two. Yeah, at some point, you just have to say enough’s enough and send it out there. Let the editor tell you what needs fixing. I just got the first edit notes on Wish in One Hand – a book I thought had been edited to death – and it’s splashed with color. Ugh. Back into the edit mines for me.

    This dude might make a neat book cover, but I don’t know if he’s worthy to run with the guys. He’s not really doing it for me this morning. Of course, it could just be me. I need more coffee.

    LOL I know ALLLLL about that tweaking and fixing and doing important stuff like that there. And you are going to look amazing in that dress–I have your turquoise tiara right here, btw–so one brownie won’t hurt.

    And I’m with BE. Sort of on the fence. There’s something about his eyes and I can’t decide if it’s a good something or a bad something… 8-O

    Happy Hump Day, witches!

    B.e., sympathies on the edits!! I feel for you but know you can totally do this!

    Hopefully this will just be a straight proofreading round. She’ll start tomorrow so I should know by early next week. Poor thing — the files I sent her is 110,000 words. Ugh.

    I’m keeping this guy for myself :-)

    Silver…LOLOL not amazing but it’ll be fun so who cares, right? No tiara!

    It’s never just one brownie…I do’tn have that kind of willpower with chocolate or fresh baked bread. But we all know I’ll cave in and make them soon.

    This guy is allll mine!

    You two are too funny! But you’re right on holding back those brownies ;).

    I have faith in you and the proof reading will be smooth sailing.

    Like the guy :).

    Hubs and I are off to an early screening of Jurassic World. Hope it’s good.

    Have a great afternoon!

    Viki, I know, I’m really tormenting him with the brownies now.

    We’ll see on the proofreading — fingers crossed.

    Hope you enjoyed Jurassic World! Did your son have anything to do with that movie?

    Hi Jenn –

    No, eldest son did not have anything to do with Jurassic World other than to come along for the viewing ;). The car dealership hubs got his car from rented out all 16 theaters at REGAL and invited all his customers. We all got 4 tickets plus popcorn and drink. It was really nice.

    I wouldn’t say it was a good movie since I don’t think any of them were “good” movies but it was sure entertaining. It’s non-stop action. I enjoyed it :).

    How’s Wizard doing with the brownie torment ;)? I know you’ll make them for him but it must be fun teasing him.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Viki, wow that’s customer service from the car dealership! Since you said early screening, I was thinking your son was involved.

    Can’t say I’m in any hurry to see the movie but I’m sure there were some great special effects.

    Wizard can’t believe I’m being so mean :-) I’ll cave soon.
