After a brief warm spell that may have been spring, only time will tell, we’re back to freezing here in Canada’s sunny south. Zero degrees C is our ‘high’ today with 100% chance of snow overnight. Having just returned from a walk in the woods with my trusty camera, I can verify the lack of heat. I’ve been warmer on the same walk in January before sunrise. We are not amused.
My lack of amusement extends also to the editing of book 4 of The Modest Proposal Institute: War of the Institutes, which is not reaching the summery heights of being complete. Throughout the past week of consistent reading and revising, I’ve found many gaps and duplications. I’m not sure I even wrote this book! Today, however, I hope to find the work I did yesterday has solved the last problem and it will be smooth reading to the end — I hope.
One bonus of all this editing is, I haven’t had to wonder what I can do while self-isolating myself from the rest of mankind. Authors are generally self-isolated most of the time anyhow and, for me, the past week has been another successful example of that. Maybe the many problems of book four are an example of the amazing workings of fate. I’ll choose to think so. That way I won’t throw the laptop and book out of the window, which is what I’ve wanted to do all week. Meanwhile, please visit my Amazon Author Page for the books I have actually written and published. Book 4 will join them there soon.
