Greetings and Salutations my fine feathered friends in internetland. Yes, Yes I am feeling rather verbose tonight. and I have clearly been watching too much Phineas and Ferb with my son. There are worse things.
So tonight was our first weekly write in after holiday break. I was determined to get some work done despite the strong desire to chat my head off and catch up on weeks of accumulated tid bits from my writing family. I imported my word doc written novel into schrivner and prepared for serious revision. I soon got the idea that I should only break a section into a chapter after I had revised it, sort of a way to keep track of where I was from writing time to writing time. This worked brilliantly as I edited and added bits to my chapters. I caught little mistakes, made grammar corrections, and polished a bit where I though my characters were flat. I even caught a time line mistake. I also chatted and shared stories with my fam. LOL.
And then of course it happened. My brand spanking new laptop declared itself out of space. Seriously the only thing I have loaded is schrivner and my novel. That’s it. But 20g is full. WTF? As I pondered this insanity and started to go down the rabbit hole of space usage, my son started complaining he was tired and wanted to go home so I put the laptop in suspend and decided to deal with the space emergency later. But I am not happy. Not one stinkin bit.
Edited seven chapters tonight. Not bad. Not bad.
