I’ve been pretty preoccupied with editing one of my novels here lately Bloggies so I don’t really have anything interesting to say. lol. I’m not intentionally TRYING to disappear for any reason, it’s just that time of year when life sort of slows down before the holiday rush and I take my time for other things.
I don’t know why I decided to start editing, but I was really bored one day and going through some old files on my computer and upon reading through it I started correcting little grammatical errors here and there until it became a full fledged project. lol. I’m hoping that I might actually get this one ready for publication. That’s really my next goal. Thanks to NaNoWriMo I can pump out 50k words like it’s my J O B in next to no time, but I need to hone in my editorial skills instead of just throwing words on paper.
In other news, Nora has taken quite a liking to my computer and phone. Those of you on my Facebook page will know this as she snuck over to my computer this morning and “posted” a status. She actually was just banging around on the keyboard, but it was adorable and illustrated my point so I clicked post for her. lol. I just hope she doesn’t get into my phone and start making phone calls to random people. lol. I try my best to keep it away from her because it’s expensive, and she doesn’t need to be playing with it, but she is crafty! I’ll put it somewhere that used to be out of her reach and turn around to find her playing with it. She really grasped the concept of tools VERY well. If she can’t reach something with her arms she will search high and low for something to extend her reach until she gets what she’s after.
I love watching her figure things out like that so I do everything I can to encourage her. Which is now backfiring on me as she can get my phone and computer lol. I have a video posted of her trying to figure out a tissue box the other day. It was SO ADORABLE. It blew her little mind that even though she took a tissue from the box, ANOTHER ONE was right back in it’s place. If I could figure out how to post videos from my hard drive to WordPress I would share it again, but I can only figure out how to post YouTube links and I don’t have a YouTube account.
Anyway… I think I’m going to get back to my editing. Until later Bloggies! 🙂
