November Nuttiness–CoronaLife Day 964

The last week of October was insane for me. I had a conference from Monday-Wednesday. I learned tons, but my brain was pretty well fried. I would get home each evening and basically collapse.

Then on Thursday and Friday I spent a total of 7 hours walking my neighborhood hanging my Board of Education campaign brochures on people’s doors. I ended up with 4 blisters and a cut toe, but hopefully I also got some votes!

Then both Saturday and Sunday were taken up with family events.

And of course Monday was Halloween. Trick or Treating with my kid and avoiding the rain.

As I expected, I have spent much of this week catching up on things I didn’t have time to do last week. It’s a similar feeling to when you go back to work after a vacation–you need another vacation after digging out from the under the pile that accumulated while you were gone!

The good news is that I finished the Vertas edit on October 23rd, as I had hoped to. I have much more to do, but the heavy lifting is finished. My plan was to finish the heavy-lift edit before the conference and let it sit for a week or two while I was busy.

That way, I will have fresh eyes when I return to it. I know I have some continuity things to review, as well as at least 3 more scenes to add.

After that (and any other tweaks I see needed) I will let it sit once more while I read a craft book my editor suggested. If it prompts any other edits, I will do them.

At that point, I may be ready to have my editor look at it again.

I’m pretty pleased with where I am. And although I am not doing NaNoWriMo, I do intend to make progress this month!

Any of you doing NaNo?
