I'll stop obsessing on that now. Aug 1 is a long way away and the report will come weeks after that.
There is a first draft of the Mouse King. Ta-da! It sucks. It has a huge hole still in the middle. I printed it out using my new-fangled double-sided laser printer to save paper. It has red marks all over the opening pages and the ending pages. Even in my initial edit I skipped over the middle. I could basically start typing it all over again and it might take less time than trying to line edit. It is not the story I set out to write a year ago. I shall have to rewrite that one for myself alone.
I also did a bit more picking up, cooking, not snacking, and the ever-present tax work yesterday. Just have to keep plugging away at it all.
