What have you been up to, eh?

Good gravy it's been almost a month.
What's been going on?

Around here, I've been
- revising ms 1, for 2010, Year of the Agent.
- setting off the smoke alarms every time I made dinner for about 2 weeks running.
- painting in the mornings with Cate Junior.
- more revising.
- worrying about the old, old car that's starting to make weird noises and smells...
- more revising
- reading sample pages from new crit buddies- you guys are some good writers!
- more revising
- getting some pleasantly surprising feedback on parts of ms 2, which I was feeling less than love about, but seems to be hooking the readers.
- more revising!! It's like working out, man. Pointless if you don't do it every day.
- seeing lots of movies.
- reading Chamber of Secrets with CJ. He's five now, and getting bored with pbs already (tear) so we've moved on to HP, and he's loving it.

And of course, revisions.

So, what is everyone else doing?

I have to go turn off the smoke alarm, and take the potatoes out of the oven.
Oh, and call my little brother... it's his birthday!

I have the same problem with that darn smoke alarm. Has to be the alarm's couldn't possibly be my cooking or the fact that I never clean the oven.

Have fun with those revisions.

Good to hear that you've been busy...and that your smoke alarms are in working order! :D

We have more smoke alarms in this house than rooms- literally. And the kind that keep screaming at you even after you take out the battery.
(Don't worry guys. We have a 1 story cottage with lots of windows)

Also- Adrienne's back!
Nice to see you again!
