…still grateful! I’m into 12-to-14-hour days now as I work hard to get this project done and back to the author for review and then back to the publisher. I love this client–they’ve been good to work with for at least ten years and the Project Editors are always so terrific. I never turn down work from them if I can help it and I’m ever so happy to be working for them now. This book is very well written, so even though it’s very technical, I’m handling it.
But (you knew there was a “but” coming, right?) their work is often technical and arduous. I think I’m feeling it particularly this time because I’ve been doing so much fiction editing lately. This is definitely not fiction and my eyes are crossed by the end of the day.
Husband is graciously handling everything else around the house/cottage and granting me time to simply get this puppy done. He’s such a peach to do the household tasks while I work—I am blessed. Right now, I’m keeping my eye on the prize (yeah, that’s the prize down there in my gratitude list!) and pushing through. Send me good working energy, okay?
Today, I’m grateful for:
- My clients, who keep me in enough work that I’m afloat and can do things like go to the lake and take little writing trips.
- Dee got to go see David’s grave yesterday–the experience was a blessing. I’m so grateful for that!
- Fresh tomatoes from my neighbor’s garden–so thankful she shares. They are yummy!
- The computer glitch yesterday set me back, but all is well now and things are working again.
