July Stuff (and a bit of early August)

Writing: 7627 words -- 2 pts. [sigh]
Editing: 41,093 words -- 8 pts.
Submissions: 5 pts.
TOTAL: 15 pts.

Still want more writing, although what I did was all in the last two weeks, after I had enough focus to get back to it. If I could do twice that next month, I'd be pretty happy. [crossed fingers]

And I just want to note that it's pretty darned annoying to go over a WIP for like the fourth time and still be finding typos and glitches and WTF bits. [headdesk] I think they spawn on their own when I'm not looking.

Edging over into August stuff, I had my first root canal yesterday (Tuesday) and... it wasn't too bad. The doctor doing them is a root canal specialist; it's all he does, so it makes sense he'd be good at it. I spent most of the next twenty-four hours unconscious, which I did with the deep cleanings too; I'm blaming that on the drugs. Yay drugs!

My book A Hidden Magic is one of the Books of the Month over on the Goodreads M/M Romance group this month. It's basically an excuse for the group to read and discuss. You have to be a member of M/M Romance to join in, but if you're able I hope you'll come chat.

Also, today is my birthday, yay! I'm forty-eight, which is a pretty cool number -- even four times over. :D

I know what you mean about the typos and such. I just don't know how they can escape you time after time. But they sure do.

Angie said...

Charles -- seriously, LOL! It's like some weird kind of hacking. I'll bet if I went through it all over again starting now, I'd find a bunch more. [eyeroll] They breed, dude. Has to be. :D


Suzan Harden said...

Happy Belated Birthday, Angie!

And yes, typos do breed incessantly.

Angie said...

Suzan -- thanks!

And yeah, I think someone's sneaking in with Miracle-Gro when I'm not looking. :P

Crap, I missed your birthday! I hope it was a happy one despite the root canal! And wishing you many words of writing this month.

Angie said...

Kara -- by my birthday I was fine, thanks. :) And I've got almost 2K words so far; hopefully I can keep that up. [grin]

Thanks! {{}}

Could be worse-- you could find out about them in the form of helpful letters from readers... "Greatly enjoyed your story but couldn't help noticing page 218, where you wrote 'hat' when I believe you meant to write 'that'..."

The joys. ;-p

Angie said...

Steve -- LOL! Yes, that's definitely worse, I'll agree. :D
