Things I Say When My Brain Has Abandoned Me

I want to be continuing to work down my bloggables list with another post I’ve been intending to write forever.

Instead I am having another sinus infection today, which has wiped me out. The antibiotics should be kicking in soon. I’m grateful for my doctor and my medical insurance.

So I’ll just share the good news that my mammoth revision actually worked. I have a long list of tiny things to fix now, but nothing major.

Sighed a big sigh of relief over that one. I really feel like I’m growing and stretching and getting better at this whole writing thing. That gives me hope that maybe this year will be different from last year. Which is exactly what I need.

Lots of things are different, now. Lots of things are aligning in my favor. I’m in a good place.

As for the other side of the business, Drew is swamped, which is both good and bad. We needed the money, but Drew probably did not need to be working the 55 hour weeks he’s been working. (These are not over. Next week will have some late nights as well so he can meet turn around deadlines.)

He’s holding up excellently, though. He’s staying happy, in his Drew-like way. And the commissions just keep coming. We’ve discovered that tax return season is one of our busy seasons–along with tournament season in the summer. The busier we get, the more I realize we’re actually doing this thing and succeeding.

I’m doing fine with it, too, given that he’s still available to talk to me while he works. I wouldn’t handle it very well if the long work week meant he was gone all the time. Especially since I’ve spent a good portion of the last week useless.

And on top of it all, we’re gearing up for the release of our next miniature. It’ll be finished within the week. I have a bunch of work to do before we can send it off to be cast…work that is about to leap off Drew’s table and onto mine. The antibiotics should have rescued me by then, though. Thank goodness for that.

That’s what’s going on here.
