Last night I went to bed at eight o’clock and then woke up at 11:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep until 1:30 or so. This morning though I had pancakes and got to pet a super cute puppy so I think the weekend is improving.
Had twenty pages workshopped. It went pretty well, although of course there was almost unanimous agreement that the opening paragraph that I had obsessed over could be done away with entirely. There was positive reaction to the voice(s) though so that was a relief.
Today I attended a “write-in” at the place I take class and got a good 2.5 hours of review/editing in. It really is a delightful idea and I’m so glad that they offered up their space for it. My only quibble was that they mentioned something about treats in the original invite and I couldn’t see any. Luckily, I brought my own cookie with me so I tolerated the disappointment with relative aplomb.
I keep changing my mind about what to read next. I’ve read the first five pages of a couple different books and have failed to settle on any one yet, though Zoo City is certainly a serious contender.
