Fellow travelers on the path.
Ah, whatever. It's late. I am gearing up for Homecoming week at my high school where hormones will be as fragrant as the hot dogs cooked up by the FFA club. We have dress up days and door decoration contests and celebrations and blow-up jumpy games and lest we not forget the reason for the madness - a football game. I am deep in the South, where in a rural town, the high school games are as close as you get to the pros. These folks take their football serious. Me...yeah, you guessed right. *looks left, then right, then whispers* I could care less.
But - I love my students and this week is all about them and so it is with great joy, I can say I actually finished my YA revisions. I thought it was going to be way more intense but I managed to get all the way through the manuscript in about 3 weeks total. I lost 1000 words and the scene that contained the title, but hey, it's off to two beta readers and then hopefully back to El Agento.
So my goal for this week - take a little break if I can because I'll need all my energy for my job and the teenagers. Oh I imagine, the upper MG will pull me back to poke and pry at its inner workings and I have beta reading to do in the evening, but I'm sort of enjoying the concept of some chill time. And of course, introducing the advanced color wheel.
Speak fellow travelers! Tell me of your journeys! And if you ask real nice, I'll post pictures of my door decorations and me in my "I Like Big Books - Info-Maniac" t-shirt that the Drama teacher had made for our faculty parody of the song, "I Like Big Butts." How in blue blazes did I end up back in high school?
