I'm thankful my fingers haven't fallen off yet. I've slashed 5,000 words and I'm only a third of the way into it. A few useless scenes, but mostly I've shortened my rambling sentences and kicked out a few thousand adverbs and adjectives. I'm working on it non-stop. My laptop's ready to blow.
I'm thankful I still love the story. I'm thankful I've been able to make it so much better.
And I'm thankful PAMELA agreed to a private, secluded writers retreat of our own!
IF we can get this cabin (I'm waiting to hear back) we'll be going in the fall!
