No pictures, but Ryma and I have been watering a friend’s garden while they’re out of town. Yesterday, we noticed two cats near the back fence, staying in the easement between properties. Today, we realized it was a mama cat and four kittens. Cute, cute kittens! They seemed feral, and there was no way we could catch them, but Ryma noticed there were bowls just inside the wire fence and so we refilled them with food and fresh water. We’ll have to ask K about them when she returns.

On a completely separate note, you may have noticed the url for the blog changed, and I say may because it may not have. There was a redirect on the url to the main domain, but that was causing other issues, and so all redirects are now turned off.

I finished reading through my manuscript for what I thought was one last time. I still found small errors, phrases like “the container containing …”, the wrong eye color for someone. *sigh* I’m trying to decide if I read through it one more time or not. I know my editor isn’t going to start looking at it for a while because of other work she has, so I could take the time to do so. On the other hand, I feel like I’m starting to obsess over this thing and I just need to let it go.

That’s all for tonight. Peace and love, all!

    I hear you! Sometimes I feel that I’m so familiar with a piece that my eyes just flit over it and I don’t even see the little things (sometimes bigger things, LOL). Sometimes just taking a break is just what’s needed.

    Kittens! Always exciting… 🙂🐈

    The url for me says “”

    Sometimes you need a break from the retreads, right? Eventually, I get to the point where I’m ready to say, “okay, tell me what’s wrong with it!”

    Did you try all the fun things like changing the font, reading it out loud, making a voice for each character, that sort of thing?

      Totally need a break from the retreads. I have done the font thing and reading it out loud. I think I’m just going to let it be. This is my editor’s first pass, an evaluation. There will probably be major things I need to fix, revisions to make, real work to be done. And then all those little typos and mistakes can be looked at more closely once the story is actually where it needs to be.
