So last week, I plunged into revising my first book in a connected series. The second book is finished and sent to my agent. But the first book in this series had been written 2 years ago so it needs some serious TLC. I’m still cringing at some of the things I’m finding in this manuscript LOL…
But, the good news is that progress is being made. I’m still challenged time-wise, but I’m making the most of any free time I’m given. Every Monday DS has a sports class that he goes to after school for one hour. Usually, I pick him up from school, bring him home to change, he eats his snacks in the car, and then DD and I drop him off. Then DD and I go and walk around the mall for 45 minutes, and then go back and pick him up. BUT, last week, DD decided to keep sleeping and since DH was home…I left her sleeping.
BLISS. So what did I do with a whole 45 minutes to myself?
Drove to the nearest Timmy’s (hey, it’s Roll up the Rim, remember?) and then drove back to the ugly parking lot outside his sports class and pulled out a notepad and pen, and did an outline for the current book in the car. I was able to jot down some scenes I wanted to add, some funny dialogue, and drink my coffee…in peace.
So it wasn’t a pretty little coffee shop, but it got the job done!
