I've been stuck with the editing for a week now. I was speeding along with my chapter a day and all of sudden, I hit a brick wall. The very smallest of suggestions, to add some more conversation. Of course, since this is my final edit of this WIP, it had to be perfect and I wracked my brain day after day, hour after hour, minute after minute, trying to add two lines of dialogue because it had to be perfect.
And then Thursday, I had a gigantic "DOH!" moment. In later pages, CP #1 pointed out a number of things that needed to be addressed earlier. Hello? Why don't I just stick that in the two lines of dialogue I was lacking. I am an idiot!
Yesterday I went and saw Breaking Dawn 2. It feels like the end of an era as I've been going to see a Twilight movie for the last five years! FIVE years! The good news? "The Host" movie next year! Hope Stephenie Meyer is writing something new so I have something to look forward to after that.
And today I took a break and made meatloaf. I like this show on food network "The Pioneer Woman". http://thepioneerwoman.com/ So I tried out her recipe which calls for 12 slices of bacon, 4 eggs, 2 lbs of ground beef. It turned out okay, but there is no way I am going to eat all that food/cholesterol. 3/4ths of it is going to over to the sister's house.
Finally, how early is too early to start playing Christmas Carols? My local radio station is playing them now.
