Busy Busy

Thursday we got a snowstorm. Seven inches of the fluffy white stuff. Of course, that meant yesterday was devoted to digging out from under. Shovel, rest. Shovel, rest. At least now I can move my car. (Although moving my arms this morning is a bit of a trial.)

Once that was done, and I could breathe normally again, I sat down with Blink. I cranked out almost 3500 words and now I can see the end of the middle part's rewrite. I had my first-line reader look it over last night, just to make sure I hadn't spent countless hours churning out something lamer than the last try. She pronounced it good, and told me where I'd screwed up in a couple places. (If you want a really good critter at home, sometimes you really do have to breed them yourself. :wink:)

What have you been up to lately? Good things I hope. I wouldn't wish shoveling on anyone.

No snow here, I'm glad to say - although the forecasters are promising us some before the end of the week. I hope they're wrong (again!). Wishing you all the best for 2008. My New Year's resolution is to visit, and comment on, all the Novel Racers' blogs more often - but I should warn you that I don't have a great track record in keeping New Year's resolutions!
