Laying Low, and Editing

Today has been a crazy day at work so that is why this blog entry is later than usual . . . sorry about that.

I find myself sticking close to work these days and just plopping down at the end of the day. I really don’t move much and just lay there and relax after work. I always have plans and ideas that I want to do at the start of the day, but just never get around to them at the end of the day. 

By the time the end of work comes rolling around, I am just tired, after all I have been up and working for the past thirteen hours by then. I am making progress on the book and it is coming along well. I know that I should be more active and do more . . . at least the dishes, but I just don’t.

I had thought about getting a part time job so I could earn a bit more and pay down those cards quicker. I know that I would be frazzled and spread thin before long.  

That would be even more work and I would be ever more tired than I am now. I will make do with what I have now, as I need to be able to focus on my writing. 

After all, I already work seven days a week at two jobs. One job is only during the weekdays and pays money, the other does not . . . yet. 

I am looking forward to my mini-break in Banff, but I know that it will mostly be a working break, but the scenery will be nice. 

So far the book has been mostly up to the required pages and number of words per chapter.  I have only needed to fatten one chapter a few pages and another chapter a smidgen. 

Once the book is as long as it is supposed to be and that extra chapter has been squeezed in where it is needed, I then can focus on how the whole book flows. 

I know that I can do this, as I have done this before, yet this is the first novel in a while that I actually plan to publish. The other books I decided were not worthy to be seen, so they remain on my hard drive, just gathering digital dust.
