More Revision

Hey! How are you today? What's new with you? Did you have a nice week? Things in Sydney are weird, but we're good.

As I mentioned last week, most states in Australia seem to be in a real hurry to open up and pretend everything's normal. Never mind the pandemic. As long as you tell people to keep doing social distancing--which so many don't--and set patron limits in restaurants, I'm sure everyone will fall in line. 😒

We took advantage of the kinda proper re-opening at the vet. One person and pet in the consultation room is better than dropping off pet and waiting outside. We couldn't do that with Loki, he would freak out. So we finally booked him in and he got his vaccination. 

Very glad it's done.

Oh, you know what I got in the mail the other day? A freaking jury duty summons. During a pandemic. Ugh. This is really stressing me out, and doesn't fit with our plans to stay away from strangers.

Trying not to think about it too much, but it's messing with my head and I'm having nightmares. It sucks. 😣

Anyway, let's talk about something else...

Here's how my revision went:
  • Monday: 32/54pgs (20,936w) 
  • Tuesday: 54/54pgs (21,063w) 
  • Wednesday: Break
  • Thursday: Break
  • Friday: 54/54pgs (20,651w) 
  • Saturday: 54pgs (20,099w)

That's right. I finished my latest novella WIP today and I'm very excited! Not just because I finally reached The End of this story, but because it's one I've had in my head for a while and it finally all came together.

I love stories about robots. I love cyberpunk. And with this novella, I took both of these elements and twisted them into my own Sci-Fi tale. It was a lot of fun.

Love it when an idea becomes so much more! 🖤🤖

Speaking of ideas. The other night I was going to trash an Idea Folder from my phone. But while taking one last look at the inspirational pics, the start of the story came to me. Out of nowhere!

So, after 1,400 words, I'm pretty sure this will turn into something. LOL

Hubby and I watched The Outsider. Wow. It was such an awesome show. It took the King novel (which I loved!) and ran with it. The show is different but so similar. The cinematography was gritty and spooky, the performances outstanding, and I liked how everything wrapped up.

Strange coincidence: the only book I read this week is IF IT BLEEDS by Stephen King. Which contains an excellent Holly Gibney novella.

Well, that's in for now. I'm going to enjoy the rest of the weekend and will probably take the next week off to read and recharge.

Have a great weekend!
