It's overcast again!

Well, I thought I'd squeeze in a blog entry before sitting down to get some more revision done. I didn't do any yesterday during the day because I spent it with my daughter. It was actually a really nice day. We went to see her get a school medal during this year's Presentation Day, and then hubby dropped us off at home. He went to work, though. :(

I read some more of CORALINE to her. We're actually only about 60 pages from the end. I'm really surprised at how much she likes it. She won't stop talking about it and can't wait to watch the movie. But I haven't been able to find a release date for it here in Australia. I know it's out in Feb in the U.S. I'm really enjoying it a second time around, too. It's amazing how much I'd forgotten of the story.

Anyway, it was a nice day yesterday.

Today's been a pretty good morning too. The hubby just left for work and I'm about to throw myself into the revision again. I got through a bit more last night and am now sitting @ 93/432 pages. The word count's gone up to 85,187. I'm pretty sure that my initial plan to get this final draft done by Friday is not going to happen. But that's okay. I'm just glad and excited to be catching up with these characters and their world again. It's a fun, yet dangerous place.

My daughter's got one more week of school to go after this one. She finishes up on the 19th. So, that's my new goal. To have this novel revision done by then. No pressure. It just means that the other revision I wanted to do probably will have to wait for next year. Or maybe the final week of this one. We'll see. I've still got a novella I need to write before the end of the year. Yeah, I know, new goal. Lol.

Okay, enough stalling. I gotta grab my lappy and get stuck into it. Bye for now!
