Ah yes...sunrise...a brand new day...another chance to hack my manuscript all to pieces like a small child left alone with a paper shredder and no sense whatsoever. Well, let's hope it isn't that bad. I started off the morning by going through the manuscript and cutting scenes out, moving others, and then it dawned on me this might be easier if I were copy the scenes into my formatted outline. That way I will have the scene capsule, the existing written scene, and my notes on what needs to change. Then the scene is right there, with all my notes of what needs to be done. I can fix it and then just remove the scene capsules and put the scenes back together and - voila! - my manuscript is back in one piece again. And hopefully 100 pages shorter than what it was previously. So all in all, it was a good morning. I've managed to do this for the first 28 scenes already.
In other news, the hot new guy the company hired last month is down for a visit today, but sadly the meetings they are having are in the hotel a few doors down. Suckage. Something about 'can't fit 25 people in the boardroom'. Blah blah blah. I say, if it gets me some eye candy, stuff yourselves in there. Do it for morale! C'mon!! Sigh...so close and yet so far away.
So, with me caught up on my work and management out of the office, I see another looooong, slow day stretching out ahead of me.
That's me sticking out my tongue and making a rude noise.
That's me falling asleep at my desk and my head slamming into the keyboard.
