Again…

Finished another round of revisions. MAN, I can’t believe how many errors I missed the before.
I’m going to run through it at least one more time. (3 sets)
This is the first time I’ve ever spent this much time on revision. Hopefully it’s a good thing. I figure a little more time upfront on my part will make a better impression when the book gets to Intrigue.
I’m getting a good feeling about this one FINALLY. Man, time is a theme for me today. 🙂

Time

Ack! I don’t have enough of it!
This week is deadline for both staffs and of course, the computer system they promised me I’d love went down twice again. The technology guys look at this small inconvenience as no big deal. Since it happens in the middle of a fifty minute class and ends up taking the entire class period to work out, it’s a big freakin’ deal to us. I don’t know enough about networking to understand what exactly’s going on, but I know enough to understand we can’t keep doing this and have any hope at all of meeting deadlines. It’s also Leadership Cohort week. I love the cohort, but it takes time.
And I’m still working on revisions. I thought I’d be done by now, but I’m going to run through the book one more time before I send it.

It’s the big school dance tonight. I’ll be there working “security.” Fun. It’s actually been a pretty violent time in our little city lately. The gangs are shooting at each other and a guy was actually killed yesterday. I hope that mess doesn’t wind up anywhere near our dance. It shouldn’t. It never has before. But after the last week across the US, it’s kind of scary to think about.

My photo editor won a national photo contest. He gets a $1500 digital Canon camera. Very cool.
