Gettin' 'er Done

:ppbbffttll: Google is messin' with me this morning. So if you got here and saw a post title with no post, I apologize.


Sorry I didn't post yesterday, but I was actually gettin' 'er done for a change. Last night, I hit my stride with the synopsis and finished the rough draft. Then I sat here and typed the thing in. The whole process took me about three and a half hours, totally screwed my beauty sleep, and as a result I'm draggin' butt this morning, but it's done.

Oh, it completely sucks. I admit that. But it's DONE. As I've said before, you can fix suckage, but not if you never get it onto the paper. So, for me, this is a huge milestone. Yay me. Seven pages handwritten turned into about four pages typed (single spaced with extra bits added in because I missed some good stuff).

Now comes the fixing. This shouldn't be as hard. I know it won't end up as long - which is good - and I'll get rid of the suckage - which is better. Since this is the last piece of my query materials, maybe if I keep my head down and keeping gettin' 'er done, I'll be able to send this puppy out next week. More Yay.

So, how are things in your world this week?
