It’s early on a Saturday morning and I am up, showered and dressed (for some value of dressed anyway). There is coffee sending up steam and the aroma of goodness on the desk next to me, most of my house is clean and I have a weekend stretched out in front of me.
Today I am going back to the short story I recently finished, having received feedback from my beta reader. I have a much firmer idea of what happens before the story than I did when I began, and the characters are much more real to me than they were 5000 words ago, so it’s time to readdress and rewrite.
That’s the task for this weekend, to get that story up on its feet, so to speak, so that I can focus on editorial duties as we start to approach the deadline for submission. I have to admit, I love playing editor for projects like this one. I get to read a diverse set of stories, from a diverse set of female writers about a diverse group of characters.
I am also expecting my mother at some point today, she’s driving out to spend some time with me and we plan on hitting up the local nursery, and possibly some other fun places.
If you want to read more of my blog ramblings, I have two other blogs that I am actively attempting to maintain, one of them is chronicling my weight loss journey post-surgery, the other is mostly my take on current events, being fat in a world that rewards skinny, as well as philosophical ramblings on politics and religion, as seen from a point of view outside the mainstream. There is poetry blog too, if you’re into that sort of thing. I also have a Patreon, if you’re interested in seeing some content from me before others, some exclusive content, etc.
You can find these here:
Weight Loss: https://aweightyjourneysite.wordpress.com/
Current Events: https://myweightinwords.wordpress.com/
You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (be warned I post a lot pictures of my cats).
I should get to that whole writing thing. Happy Saturday, Readers! May it be filled with fun, silliness and a whole lot of love!
