I really like Angry Birds. Yesterday, the new Space version was released, so I played all the stinking levels that are currently available. I had to recharge my cell phone twice during the day, since I kept running the battery down. Hopefully I'll have a substantially more productive day today, since I don't have any more green pigs to kill.
I'm feeling remarkably de-stressed about all the non-writing things in my life right now. I was relieved of a huge responsibility, and it feels great. Suddenly, I can breathe again, and it wasn't even that big a change for me. It's remarkable how that can happen. I thought I was going to have this huge responsibility all summer long, but now I find that I'm not needed to take over on this huge volunteer project, so I can sit back and participate when I can, and don't have to worry about the rest. It's a big relief, and for some reason, I just feel lighter today. I love that.
TEDIOUS NOTES FOR ANYONE WHO CARES WHAT I'M WRITING (read: me and me alone):
I'm editing the second book (again), and I find it's not quite up to where I thought it was before I rewrote the first book--and not just because of the plot changes in the first book. I'm finding clunky sentences, repetitive language, and confusing dialogue. I know this strange loop could go on forever, but I'm going to redo book 1 after this, to make sure it's not this bad, and then do book 2 again, before starting up on the third again. I haven't even looked at that one in a while, but I only got 50 or so pages in before I stopped for the R&R on book 1. I can't even remember where I left off...
END TEDIOUS NOTES.
Back to editing the really gruesome end of a battle. What a way to start a Friday!
