Perhaps I should limit editing to my book only

I've decided that while editing, all mirrors should be removed from my house. When I get in a critical mode, nothing gets spared in the process. Oh, and maybe all scissors should be hidden as well. :) At least I didn't ruin my hair. It actually looks better. And my book's shaping up as well. So all is good. But in case you couldn't tell, I go into a semi-reclusive state when I edit, so sorry I've been absent. I promise I'll be back soon. In fact, I'm on schedule to finish on Monday. I'm so excited.

  2. lol, that's funny. It's that editing mindset, it never turns off. I find myself actually revising what I say, as I say it. Like, I'll say something, and then envision myself deleting the text and then I'll say it better. :)

  3. Ut-oh, you took scissors to your hair. You have editetosis. It's curable, I think. But you may need intervention when you play haircutter with the kids. Been there done that. Take two bags of Junior Mints and call me in the morning. And good luck.

  5. You go! I hope you can reach your goals. It's a good feeling to achieve something huge like that.
    BTW, would you like to come over to my house and edit my mess?
