I'm still here

I know it's hard to believe, but I am still here. I'm working on a client's site for the next five weeks. It does disrupt my plans when this happens so suddenly but hey -- it's work. I'm not complaining... well not much anyway. The problem with living in hotels is their upload speed leaves a lot to be desired, so making improvements to Word Count Buddies website will have to wait until the weekend. I have a couple of things that I think will be nice additions.

ASF edits are progressing slowly. I want to finish the chapter I'm working on tonight. When I work out my word count it's disheartening. I'm cutting far more than I'm adding. But the cuts are necessary and good. I don't go hunting for every phrase that I've added. If I can find them easily then I count them so although my numbers look horrible I have done more. Not a lot more, but even so.

I don't want to start on a new project until I have this one put to bed or I'll never finish it. And I'm looking forward to getting to know my new characters. The words will flow much better when I can get going on it.

Ouch. Living out of hotels is hard. I did it many times growing up because my Dad was in the Army. I have a lot of good memories of those times, but it was still hard.

Hang in there.
