Yesterday I spent a lazy day in bed doing some edits to a WIP. Several times a weird noise came out of my laptop. And it just happened again.
It sounds almost like a bug trapped inside and I’m convinced that at any moment something is going to hatch and eat me.
I hope that doesn’t happen. I’ve got lots to do this week.
Gotta get some paid work time in (yes, I labor on Labor Day, I’m so very committed).
Mostly I gotta get some time in because my contract expires Wednesday at midnight and then I am officially jobless. I’ve been looking for a job since I finished grad school over a year ago. Apparently a job has not been looking for me. But off to staffing agencies on Thursday because bad money is better than no money.
Tomorrow I may check out this new book club thingy at the local library where we sit around and talk about books and books we should be reading – because, ya know, I don’t already have a trillion books on my TBR list
I also need to find some beta readers for my YA WIP. I started this book about eight years ago (give or take). I wrote a rough draft in a few days and I was very pleased with myself. Then my laptop died. Completely and totally died – the entire OS.
I had NOT backed up my file!
I was so crushed it took me a long time to even attempt to start it again. But I did and of course it was better.
It’s been sitting for awhile and when I reread it over the weekend I was surprised it wasn’t as rough as I remembered it being. So of course I’m jolly pleased with myself.
But I should stop rambling and get to work.
Randomness of the day – I was watching the Sound of Music on TV last night (yeah, that’s right, I watch the SOM, that’s how I roll) and now I have that goatherd song stuck in my head. And truth be told, I’m a little creeped out by marionettes so this randomness is not as awesome as it would seem.
