I did make some progress with a craft project, and had fun planning for my 'turning-40' Idaho trip this summer, as well as some garden planning. Exercising is coming along decently as well, and since it was warmer at times, I got off the exercise bike and out for some long walks, which was nice (leaving aside what I did to my feet with my hiking shoes on that 11 mile jaunt at Afton State Park). But most of my spare time was engulfed with revisions and editing in my first Geren book. At least I now think I might actually live to reach Pass 3... (I was at 48% the end of February, and 11% the end of January.)
Mar 8 - Started writing 'Renegade'
Mar 11 - First apheresis donation of 2015
|Pass 1||Highlight/comment potential edits & revisions||COMPLETE!|
|Pass 2||Major edits and revisions||In Progress, 91% done|
|Pass 3||Items missed in Pass 2, edit revisions||not yet started|
|Pass 4||Highlight/address bad habits and trouble spots||not yet started|
|Pass 5||Verbal read-through||not yet started|
|Pass 6||Thorough review with different font and page layout||not yet started|
|Pass 7||Final sweep||not yet started|
Note: Passes 2 & 5 will take the longest because I have to do them at home, and can't work on the bus or my lunchbreaks. Pass 2 is the most difficult and grueling; Pass 5 will probably render me severely hoarse!
As for April, I need to wrap up the craft project before gardening season arrives, and I also want to finish the last Triune prep-story, though that is looking like a bigger project than I initially guessed. April brings the first art fairs I want to attend, and more outdoor excursions as well, I hope. But of course Geren book 1 revisions will still take top priority.
