Hey everyone, how are you?
Yesterday was spent making small last minute revisions to the book chapter before emailing it back to the editor.
Writing and editing can take up so much time. I had forgotten what it was like on a document this long. My co author made some changes in the morning and then I looked over it and then in the evening we had a meeting. It was a good way for us to do it. As we work at different times, for example I am not a morning person, whereas my co author is. So, it worked out well. As I write this we are yet to meet online today, but hopefully we will agree to send it back to the editor with our changes. And hopefully he approves of them. We have been working really hard to get it right and I know that it will be a relief when everything is done.
For me it was hard to get through the reading of the chapter. As it was on screen and I did not think that I had enough printer ink to print it again. So, I had to do the best that I could. Also reading on screen is hard for me because of my dyslexia. I find that the words and letters move around when I am trying to read. Or they become blurry which is equally annoying. It was also hard because I had not slept well the night before. I could not sleep because of the giving up of nicotine replacement therapy yesterday. Disturbed sleep is a reported side effect of stopping any substance that has nicotine in it. I just need to get through this week and it will become a lot easier.
I don’t know what is going to be happening today with the writing. I have a appointment in the day time and there is also some things that I want to do whilst I am out. But if I get some time then I would like to do some fiction writing. Especially if the chapter is being emailed off, as that gives me some time to write something else.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
