Many thanks to everyone who sent get well wishes, and all those delicious recipes. I am looking forward to trying them out.
I am recovering from the recent bout of Stomach Virus From Hell, and send out to all of you who are still in its grip my deepest sympathies. I hope you all break free of it soon, as well.
While I was prone in an exhausted heap from the stresses of the virus, I started editing the book I just finished. Since I know some of you are keenly interested in the process by which a book gets written, I thought I’d share just what the recycling bin in my office currently looks like.
Yup, that’s it, overflowing with manuscript pages. To be honest, it was almost full before I started dumping the edited MS on it, but since I’m almost done with the editing, it will just have to hold a smidgen more before I call in Mr. Katie to strong-arm it out to the big recycling bin.
And for those of you who like to know about my odd little quirks, this is the only time I ever print out a MS in double-space. I write it single-space, and do the final edit single-space. But for the first polish, I print it double so I have lots of room to write. And as you can see, sometimes the writing overflows to the backs of the sheets.
