Jenny pointed out that the end of the month is this Friday. Wow! That one just rushed right up and bit me. My goals didn't seem all that ambitious when I set them--they never do--but I don't see me finishing my revision of MMG by Friday. Especially since I've only finished step 1 of my homework assignment.

BUT I feel good about the manuscript. It's not the steaming pile I feared when I finished the initial revision and turned it over to The Group. So I got that going for me. And I talked with a couple people whose advice hasn't steered me wrong yet. They agree that sending something in the best possible shape a little later than expected is much much better than sending it out on time but needing work.

I did keep up with my AL submissions. Okay, I didn't get any until today, but still.... And I've been thinking about TNN, playing with a couple different scenarios in my head. Now they're in the crockpot. So, not so bad on August after all.

Okay, so you didn't get as far as you wanted. However, Jenny's homework was a pretty major assignment, so don't feel bad. Besides, progress is progress, however you slice it.

Debbie said...

Aw, and they call you the Ali-demon. Where do these people come up with stuff like that?


Jenny said...

Yeah, I got tired assigning the assignment, so God knows what you'll be when you're done with it.

And it's important to remember that the only reason Ali's a demon is because she cares. If I actually thought she'd yell at me, I'd cry.

Ali said...

Nah, no yelling. As soon as one starts yelling, one has already lost. Speaking quietly and calmly is the way to go. You know, all the best villians are soft spoken.
