Now, round 4 is coming up. But, my daughter just woke up, no doubt because of the cats. Ugh.
Back to bed for me @ 2am.
If you are up late check out my samples or newest poems. (I'm about to Tweet one out @Realpoetry.)
So it's 9a.m.-ish, now. I have to say that although I was really satisfied to finish another revision of my long story, I didn't have that cathartic sense of completion. You know that almost orgasmic finish of pure joy that sometimes comes when you finish a project. (Ah ha ha ha. No pun meant.)
Maybe that is because I was pretty happy with the second revision. Anyway, as soon as I get the editor to give it a read over and the copy editor who is getting paid in chiles rellenos to look at it over the weekend, I am going to finalize the cover. I have to lighten the image some, or I may use the orange grove image, but I am not going to touch it until I submit my grades, which are due tomorrow at midnight. I plan to have them done before noon because I am a little punked out and just want to clean the house and write.
Write, always, despite your cats' shitty behavior. #Resist
