I've spent two days editing my manuscript. One full day with my preliminaries and then my editor sent me her version, in which I had to re-read and make additional edits. My eyes hurt from hours of reading. I think I won't be able to read my story again for a long while. Don't get me wrong, I love my story. It's actually quite beautiful and sad like the up and down melody of a love song. The characters are very strong and I feel it's a great love story. I'm proud of this piece and I hope the readers will too.

I think what makes me feel great about my story is that I had a beta reader and the feedback I had made me all warm and fuzzy. It's good to hear compliments. It builds the self esteem when someone can appreciate what I'm writing. To enjoy what I've created and to give me the momentum I need to push on through the next project. Thank you so much! I truly appreciate the honesty and your time in reading it over for me. You know who you are.

Now I get to start working on my single title. I'm wondering if I have the energy. I did watch a movie on tv while I worked and it was the saddest love story ever! Boy did it piss me off. I hate movies you invest so much time on and then the main character dies!!! WTF, I was depressed the rest of the time while I was editing. Thank goodness for my sweet bottle of wine to keep me from writing to the screenwriter and bitching her out. No wonder I write romance, at least I'm guaranteed my happy ending!

I'm waiting for my laundry. I really hate doing it, but the best part of this horrendous chore is when I can pull the nicely HOT towel and rubbing my face against it. There's something about the smell of detergent and fabric softener that's so sensual. Maybe I'm a dork but man, I love that part of laundry. I have fantasies of throwing it on the bed and rolling around on it naked because it would keep me nice and warm. Like a lovers caress...I know, I know what you're thinking. Is that considered a fetish? I hope not. I would assume when I have a fetish it would be a freakin' amazing one. Hummm, I better go pull my laundry out... **wicked laughter**

I thought I was the only one who liked warm towels from the dryer. Best of luck on your edits.

Thanks LK. I am in love with warm dryer towels. It makes you feel 10 again and it really is indescribable. I think that everyone should do it and if they tell me otherwise, they're nuts! I knew we were friends for a reason. :)
