No, I’m not. I’m actually procrastinating. I just figure blogging is more productive than spider solitaire or mah jong.
I’ve been rewriting the war widow story scene by scene, fixing places where I’m telling and not showing. This was a consistent remark from all of my judges, and my friend Val has been kind enough to point out specifically where I’m telling in a super timely manner. (Like, light speed!) She’s a smart cookie, I’ll tell you that much.
Showing is harder than I thought it would be, but I’m slowly getting the hang of it. Slowly. Maybe I’ll finish the first section of keeper material before my brain explodes. Lucky for me I have fake coffee and mint Oreos. Also, in my desk drawer is a bag of dried pineapple and a stash of dark chocolate peanut butter cups. If I’m not careful, I’ll gain five pounds before this edit is finished!
Enough chatter; back to work.
