In Which Revisions Aren’t As Bad As I Thought

Well, I’ve had a pretty darn good writing week, if I do say so myself! BlackLion and I worked on our novel revisions 4 days, for a significant chunk of time each day (I didn’t keep track, but at least a couple hours and sometimes more). While we each really had to slog across the swamp of our initial read-through and commenting, this part is much more fun. I’ve been enjoying doing the scene-charting, and tossing around ideas for making the story stronger. We’re making excellent progress. At one point BlackLion said, “there’s really quite a lot of re-writing we need to do.” My reply, with a big grin, was “I know! That’s the fun part!” So I guess I’m still enthused about the story, huh? Heh heh.

I also kept up with blogging, which hadn’t been the case for a couple weeks previous. I spent a lot of time on one post in particular. Based on some requests by friends, I wrote up a fairly long article on yoga philosophy and practice from my layperson’s perspective. I posted it today. I’d love to get some feedback on it. Are you interested in yoga? Or do you have friends and readers who are? I’d be so grateful if you checked it out and shared the link around to help spread the word. It can be found at this link on my Starcat’s Corner website. Thanks in advance!

In other news, healthy eating and daily practices (including yoga) are going well. I haven’t lost any additional weight as of yet, which is a bit disappointing, but I’m probably building muscle, so I’ll try to be patient.

I guess that’s all for now. A member of my family is having surgery this week, and I’ll be helping her out afterwards, so I’m not sure how much writing I’ll get to. I’m just going to go with the flow and see what unfolds. Family comes first.

Have a lovely and productive week!

  1. A good productive week is always inspiring.
    I’ve recently given up refined sugar, and am also telling myself that I’m putting on muscle. Though in your case I’m sure it’s true.
    Keep up the enthusiasm for the work and don’t let anyone bring it down.

  2. I dread revisions, so your attitude towards it is really inspiring. As for the yoga, keep at it! I have a friend who did it every day for the summer and got great results, better balance, and flexibility. I used to practice for it’s meditational benefits, but I find that my days sometimes are so busy, I barely have time for a twenty minute set. Good luck with the rest of round!

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful week, Nikki. May the energy of your momentum (and the cool yoga post) keep you strong through the changes in your family. And may the surgery go well.
