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.
