Kerri's Progress Notes:
Spent only an hour on the computer yesterday. Gave it a break and gave myself one, too. Spent time with family--cooked dinner for my folks and hung out with the kids watching the movie Rango.
Very little progress on all accounts, but it was a fun day. Well, except for the pre-rain migraine. Anyone else get a migraine when it is gonna rain? Ouch!
Back in the saddle today with both work and writing.
For those of you who are already published or who have worked with an Editor in some capacity--you may know that an editor becomes so involved in your book while working through it that we almost feel as if the characters are a part of us as well. So, it is every editor's dream to put their name on a document that is clean, polished, and well put together.
I'm so proud of all the novels I've edited and whenever I complete edits and the book is published--I send a gift to all of "my authors". What is the gift? Well, it varies from author to author. Most recently, I edited a YA book all about Greek goddesses. So, I sent the author a goddess ornament made from clay.
Today, I've selected the perfect (I believe) gift for our 4th Participant Winner of the Challenge. Please send me your snail mail address here. The gift is depicted below and the WINNER is.................
From Editor to Editor! I love this one! Hope you enjoy.
