I'm really not slacking off. I'm on a search and destroy mission, looking for was, that, and other such words in my manuscript. It's really tough trying to rewrite and still keep things sounding natural, and I often end up cutting. By the time I'm finished, the manuscript will be close to two thousand words shorter, and I hope much stronger. It's a slow process, and I want to finish it this weekend, so I'm not doing anything I don't have to.
Before this edit started, I read Terry O'Dell's romantic suspense What's in a Name? and really enjoyed it. Well-written with good characters--everyone has secrets.
I started M. Louisa Locke's Maids of Misfortune: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery, another good one with an intriguing character. I really want to get back to it.
I hate to admit how addicted to my Kindle I've become. I have two hardback books by favorite authors that I keep putting off, and recently I returned three books to the library. I didn't have time to finish them and don't like carrying them around.
What are you reading? How do you feel about hardbacks and e-readers?
Back to the edits. See you.
