I made it to page 31 yesterday (both kids were out last night, so I just kept going when I got to page 25). And I’m on page 54 right now. (Though there’s one thing…a big thing…I need to go back to on page 31 because I’m not sure what to do with that yet. Depending on what I end up doing, I may have to weave the change I make there through the rest of the book, and I want to think about how those potential changes would play out as I go through the manuscript this time.) So that means I have 21 pages to do tomorrow.
While I haven’t played my mandolin yet today, I did spend some time researching new mandolins (yes, I need a new one already…remember, the one I have came from a FLEA MARKET…and it plays like it came from a flea market, too…so I’m going to use that free money I got last week and trade my crappy mandolin in for a decent starter instrument). I also took a 22-mile bike ride before the Hawkeye fans took over my trail TOO much (yes, it’s Game Day in Iowa City). So I haven’t been chained to my desk all day. I’ve been disciplined, but not chained.
