Deadline…

I got home late tonight, opened the WIP and stared at the computer screen long enough to know today is an I SUCK at this writing day. 🙂 I didn’t have a problem watching Project Runway, but watching TV is easy. Writing, right now, is NOT.
So I started working on revisions. And realized my hero is a heck of a lot like the last hero. He shouldn’t be. Nothing about him is the same as the last one.
THIS I can fix. Yes, it’ll take some work. But right now this hero needs a dialogue make over. 🙂

We lost an ENTIRE layout in yearbook somehow. I have no idea how or where. We thought it was in a folder ready to go, but no. It’s gone. Worse, it’s not on any of our backups. SOOOO tomorrow I get to call our IT people and say you know how you said one day I’d be happy about your tape backup? Today’s that day. HOPEFULLY it’s not already erased. This has been a much better year with IT. They totally get my program and my Macs. Woo Hoo!!!!

School Tours

Got home last night at 8:40 and I’m still exhausted. Organizing a group of adults into something like this might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

Our district is a choice school district. Students get to choose which junior high and high school they go to, and we all have different programs to offer. The theory is competition will make the schools better. We’ve been doing this for ten years, and so far, not only is the theory dead wrong, it’s also dangerous. Some might disagree, but our schools have actually segregated because of choice. Seems a little backwards to me.

What I’m reading: The second in Jennifer Armintrout’s vampire series. I waited a long time to read it because the blood and gore in book one made me little sick, but the story was fantastic and I want to know what happens next, especially with the whole EVIL vampire turned human.
