Helping run an awesome sci fi and fantasy convention. Playing Munchkin with friends. Finally booking our hotel rooms for our trip to Japan and doing last minute research. Taking long walks through our neighborhood that I adore. Throwing out stuff for Clean Up Week. Cursing the snow that fell on the first day of May. Drinking butterbeer with friends. Watching Ghibli Studio and Godzilla movies. Keeping and spilling a big secret. Reading the stack of books I ignored. Ordering a copy of Kin to take on our trip to edit and doodle in research. Cheating by writing editing notes for my manuscript and beginning to outline a collaborative story.
We have decided to go to Japan as planned. That means we leave later this month. I am ready to carry my manuscript with me wherever I go and will tackle the first edits throughout the month of June. It will be something to re-discover my editing process in the same way I have my writing. I have to say, I am really looking forward to it!
