Got my novel down to 139100 last night. As wonderful as that sounds now, my husband then followed that up with "so, just 30000 more, right?"
I have to admit, if I can just squeeze 19000 more out of it, I'm going with 120000. I know it's the high end, but I can't find anything else!! Well, I said that at 167000 too.
Halloween was kind of a dud at our house. My kids are 13 (14 in 2 months, I have to be sure to say it that way) and 18 and had their own parties to go to, so we--the ones who have no life--sat home and waited to be called upon. We had all of 3 trick-or-treaters. So we ate the chocolate.
I am a little concerned that once I get this thing wrangled into the right size and I get to go back into query hell again, about not having any "credentials" that you are supposed to list at the end. I have joined RWA so I'll mention that. And I'm going to submit a short story for a Writers Digest contest, but other than that, I have nothing to put out there.
Almost 8am... need to go do my "real" job now.
