More Revision, Reading & Star Wars

Yes, stay calm because the weekend is just around the corner. ;)
Another week is slipping away, but I have to admit that I've done a lot. Yeah, it was supposed to be some sort of week off, but instead turned into the week where I did a whole bunch of stuff!
The first thing I did on Monday morning was get stuck into Willow's Pre-Third Draft List. There were about eight things I wanted to fix before calling this draft done, and I got them done. Yay. The only problem was that I didn't feel entirely happy with the epilogue. But I decided to just put it aside.
Total word count went up to: 75,916.
That day I also finished reading Ivy Pocket and wrote + posted the review. Not to mention that I got a bunch of washing done before hubby and I took Loki to the vet. Nothing serious, he just needed his annual check-up and vaccination.
I was pretty tired by the end of the day.
When Tuesday rocked around I was planning to get another load of washing out of the way, and spend the rest of the time reading. Yeah, well, things didn't work out like that. You see, I started sorting through my YA bookshelf... and before I knew it the bed was FULL OF BOOKS and I found myself re-organising everything. It actually ended up taking most of the day to sort through. It was super tiring, but like my daughter said: It looks pretty.
I just have to get used to where everything is.
Wednesday was reading day! I was already halfway into the second 100 book and just couldn't put it down. My gosh, this is such an awesome series. Or is it a trilogy? I haven't heard anything for sure, but a few people on Goodreads mentioned it's a trilogy. Anyway, I'm loving it.
My daughter is reading each book after me, so when we're both finished it'll be time to start watching the show. I realise that it's probably really different and all that, but I always like to read the book before watching the movie/show.
That afternoon we also got back into yoga. After a brief hiatus, it's time to get back into workouts. I just hadn't had enough energy to tackle them until now. The yoga workout was great. I needed the stretching, that's for sure.
By Thursday morning, I'd decided that I couldn't ignore the epilogue problem any longer. And since my daughter went to work with hubby, and a great new angle/approach came to me while I was falling asleep the night before, I decided to open up the Word doc again and got stuck into it.
Well, I ended up deleting the epilogue and writing it again from scratch. And it's SO MUCH BETTER. I love how the story ends now. Very happy. It was a bit of extra work, but definitely worth it. Now, I can put it away for a week or so.
Total word count went up to: 77,447. (I think it'll inch up a little more during the next draft.)
So, here we are. It's Friday. The last day of the week. And what have I been doing? Well, I've been updating my website. There were a lot of links and stuff that needed updating, and I also wanted to post something. So, here I am.
But before I did any of that, I watched this:

OMG. Did you guys see this yet? It's seriously awesome stuff. I mean, I was one of those people who just wasn't excited about the new Star Wars movies. Not after what the prequels did to the story. But I've been a fan of the original trilogy since I was a kid, so to see THIS. Wow! I believe I'm now very excited about this movie!

Well, that's it for now. I've got some reading to do.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!
