Slogging Through Revisions

The confession behind this blog: Read here. 

 This last week was filled with pumpkin strolls and hot glue gun burns as I finished making Halloween costumes. I also continued to Slog Through the Slogfest of Draft #3 of #TheRobotStory (aka, His Favorite Distraction).
La Petite's Kitty Cat Pumpkin.
The Kitty Cat pumpkin lit up along the stroll.

Those costumes! All glue, velcro, and a teeny, tiny bit of my blood.



I at least had a break from making dinner--we had a lot left over from our Christmasgiving on Sunday.



Christmasgiving done simple--including soup can candles.


Revision has been slow-going, but I've been using my Productive Procrastination skills to get side work done:

1) I finished the cover for His Favorite Distraction. (#TheRobotStory) 

2) I used my Social Media Minions to decide on a cover for #TheRobotStory.

3) I brainstormed promotions (and set them up through BookGorilla, eReaderNews Today, Goodreads Giveaways and three Blog Hops).

4) I worked on a Super Secret Collaborative Project, something that always helps me shoot some adrenaline into my sloggy writing ways.

And I also found myself in Maine looking at these homes and going, "Wow, this is where my Annaliese and Matt love and fight and fight some more!"

And now I am back to my story and trying to unknot the mess. I always have a mess at this point. And I always drag my feet at this point.

Anyone else drag through the slog?
