Judging from the pathetic progress between yesterday and today, it looks as if I didn’t work very hard today. But my first note from my editor suggested I tighten the first three chapters and eliminate one scene. So I did lots of cutting today, which is why it doesn’t look like I made much progress. But I did.
I also did some research into mixed martial arts and cage fighting. I even went to Borders (it’s closing soon, sniff sniff) and bought an MMA magazine. And a cookbook. And a book on antique jewelry. And some chocolate. It’s hard to walk out of there without an armload when they are doing such deep discounts. Afterward, since it was “Date Night,” we went to Islands and had dinner. Islands has started including the calorie count on every item menu, and it was so scary that I ended up ordering from the “healthy” section of the menu. I wish every restaurant would do this so I wouldn’t eat 2,000 calories’ worth of nachos without knowing.
Finished up Season 1 of Medium. I love that show. So sorry they canceled it.
