Editing, Breaking Dawn, Meatloaf & Christmas Carols

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".  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.

  1. I am already wanting to decorate for Christmas! And I know what you mean about BD. I felt like that with the last Harry Potter movie.
