WIP Day - The next leg!

This will be a speedy post today.  I have construction workers running rampant in my apartment, finally replacing all of the windows.  Someone call the exterminator!  Luckily, hubby is still home for a bit, giving me this small amount of blogging time before I have to get back to keeping my two little guys away from the excitement.  How I long for a house... or a second car.

Anyway!

Good news!  I finished my paper edit!  Go ahead... join me... *HAPPY DANCE*

I spent a good chunk of this last weekend editing away (when not editing the maternity photos that I just took for a friend.  Love preggo bellies!)  By Monday I only had about 17 pages left, and I managed to bust them out and close the red, bleeding book just before the new episode of House clicked on. 

Yay me!

It sure felt good to finish that round.  I know I have a ton of work ahead of me.  Now its a couple day break for my poor brain, then I dive right back in.  Plugging my edits into the word doc.  Going through all the beta comments and seeing what else I missed.  Plugging THAT in.  Phew!

At this moment in time, I have feedback from five of my betas.  Still waiting on two... but if I don't get that soon, oh well.  I think I have enough to really see what this creation of mine did.  I am very excited to go through their thoughts.  And nervous.  Kinda nervous... Really nervous.

As of now, I am thinking that Friday I will start back in.  We will see if my brain allows.  I just may have to force it.  Being as I have never gotten this far... I have no idea how long it will take to edit.  Or for my head to explode.  Which ever comes first, I am sure it will be epic.

Ok, hubby is tapping his watch.  Time to skidaddle.  Have a good day, fellow Bloggers and awesome readers.  (Oh... and as a heads up... something special is coming for the next Mash-Up Monday post.  Can you smell a... give-away?... * Smile.*)

And now I leave you with... some Beta comments!  *Cheer*

Congratulations on finishing this process! It does feel good doesn't it? Really makes you want to roll up your sleeves and jump back in...but take a little break:)

Congrats on finishing the paper edit! A happy dance is definitely in order.

Happy to be a new follower. I LOVE the look of your blog!

Doreen - Oh yes it feels good! Though now I am counting down to friday... when editing begins again!

Jennifer - Welcome! I'm happy to have you following me :)

I've tried changing the look of my blog a few times... but I always change it back pretty quick. I love how it turned out, and don't know if I can ever change it. I'm happy you like it too!

Congrats on finishing your paper edits! I found you from the Natalie Fischer pitch contest. :) I like how you included beta comments in this post - never seen anyone do that, but it's a great idea!
