I had a very productive weekend, all told.  Rearranged my room to put my desk in a better corner – coincidentally, closer to one of my pinboards.  The cats are thoroughly confused but appear to like the new configuration.  I took the opportunity to sort through and organise all the stuff that had been piling up on my desk, so now it’s clean and usable again.

Got the next week’s AB posts all edited and scheduled up.  I had to rewrite one this morning after some feedback from the lovely Julie – I was having a dilemma over what to do with a couple of the characters, and changed my original plan.  It gave me the chance to throw another spanner in the workings of Faith’s little group, which is always a good thing.  Or at least interesting.

And I finally got down to really editing through the first portion of the novel yesterday.  I’m being pretty ruthless at the moment and it seems to be shaping up pretty good.  I’m shuffling a few things around, and patching up after that is proving to be a pain. 

It’s almost time to submit it for feedback, though.  I’m considering taking out one of the subplots and POV threads, but I’m really torn about that – I love the characters involved, but I need to work out if they’re really any use within the story.  I like what they add, but I don’t know if it’s really necessary, or, worse, a distraction.  Hopefully a fresh set of eyes or three will help me work that out.

Phew.  So much to think about.  I’m really tired today, but I’m determined to crack on with, well, everything.

Went to see Bolt yesterday, too.   I am in love with the hamster.  I’m gonna go get my ball.
