In Revision Hell
I've been here before. But I don't have to like it.
Why do I hate revisions so much? It's excruciating. The mere idea of it is enough to make my stomach knot up. I've been sitting on these revisions for days, in a small state of panic, frozen. I know exactly what I have to do, which you'd think would be some sort of relief. Nope. I really must be as neurotic as I think I am. I finally started them today and I'll admit I do feel a bit better. A bit.*sigh*
Meanwhile, there are all sorts of lovely things to distract myself with. For instance, I'm going up to Lake Tahoe to see some actual snow this winter (since it's always summer here in LA-yeah, not so much lately) and to visit my friend Lillian Feisty for her birthday just before Christmas. A friend of hers is having an 80's themed birthday party and I've decided, after reading a comment made by our friend Will Belegon on Feisty's blog, that I must go as Adam Ant because, let's face it, who was hotter in the 80's than Adam? I always wanted to be an Ant girl. Instead, I'm going to be him! I'm very excited. So excited that I spent way too much money ordering a frock coat on the Internet this afternoon. Look, isn't it beautiful?I think if I wear the coat with my pirate boots (I already have a pair, of course) the right accessories, do the Prince Charming makeup and deal with my hair, it'll work. One of my favorite ways to not do revisions the last few days is to watch his videos on You Tube and search for pics on the Internet so I can study his costumes. And I still love the music! But really, look how pretty he is:What is it about a boy in lip gloss? Or is that just me? We'll just ignore the fact that this is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.
Okay-back to work! After you watch Stand and Deliver. It's my favorite.

    Aaaah I love Adam Ant so much. I was always partial to Prince Charming. Fond memories of watching way too much MTV.

    Revision hell sucks! I was just in it! And edit hell too! It all hit at once with two manuscripts. You'll make it thro, I have faith in you.

    And I'm jealous you're going to Feisty's bday party. Lucky!

    Well, I don't have much to add since I don't really know who those people are, either. But, you know me, I comment anyway. :D

    Hope the hell--er, revisions go better.

    Silly question: Why would you want snow? I just don't get that one... *walks away, shaking head slightly*

    Good luck with everything, hon!
