Shakes head. No novel work I'm afraid.

Hopefully I will be doing a lot this weekend. I was planning on spending five-six hours Monday on copy editing one finished novel but that is going to be cut down by a couple of hours at least.

But besides one or two crits I may have time to work on that novel Tomorrow and Sunday.

But you've been busy on yours.

Today I hit 12k on my novel rewrite.

I'm aiming for 8k a month, (May being the 2nd month.) to be done around 64k.

I'm hoping to send this one out when it's done and polished. But I said that about the last one and took it around 90% of the way and it crapped out when I was overwhelmed by the "Facts" I didn't know about the main character's profession. Complete buzz kill.

Unemployed characters are so much easier to write about. [Smile]
