Hello, we've hit the end of the week

And you know, I forgot to mention that my short story, WAKING FROM NIGHTMARE, will be published in the next issue of Ethereal Tales. Yay. How awesome is that? And it happens to be the sequel for the story that was published in Issue Six. Can't wait to see the cover. :)

Doesn't Loki look comfy in the box that is too small for him? It doesn't stop him from trying to get in though. He's got a thing for boxes. You can't put one down anywhere without him trying to get in. lol.

Well, my daughter and I popped into the library yesterday. We hadn't been in ages. Mainly because I've got so many of my own books--and books to review--that I've tried to stay away. Anyway, I ended up borrowing two books, and this book is one of them. I've had my eye on this one for a while, so I couldn't pass it up. ;)

But first, I'm reading this one. It's one of the two books left on my TBReviewed pile. I started it yesterday and I'm pretty close to page 100 already. It hooked me in right away. I'm really enjoying it. Can't wait to get back to it, but that won't be for a while because it's time to concentrate on my own story first.

Yep. The revision is still going. Last night I hit my target (well, I went 3 pages over, yay!) and am now sitting on page 117/390. The word count's 77,235. Even after the amount of words I deleted last night, it still managed to creep up a little. Which is cool. I'd still like to reach/cross 80k by the end of this draft. I think I can do it. Well, I hope I can.

Today I'm aiming to reach page 152 before the end of the day. I should be doing that right now, but thought I'd squeeze in a blog post first. I find that most of the time, if I don't blog before getting stuck into things, I either forget or time slips away. So, here I am. :D

Better get started before I cave into more reading...

I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Love Loki's expression: "Yes, I'm in a box. What of it?" *hugs to kitteh*

Yolanda Sfetsos said...

Exactly! See, he thinks it's the most natural thing in the world to squeeze into all boxes. lol. :) How's Manny doing lately?

Manny's displeased with me, because when I catch him napping on the couch during the day, I deposit him outside. Unless it's raining, of course - I'm not completely without mercy ;-)
