Ding Dong, the Draft is Done!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS rough draft

51898 / 50000 words. 104% done!

I wondered if I'd ever finish...now I have the weekend to rewrite the partial of Possibly. Then it's on to editing Impressions...and let me tell you, it needs it! I'd usually work about being 2K over my word budget, but this thing likely has a scene or three that can be tossed completely.

OH...and for those on baby watch. Nothing yet...but my mom who came up to help me? She broke her ankle and is stuck on my couch!

HORROR SCOPE

Get this! Today's Tarot.com version is Responsibilities are heaped on you and you must keep yourself on the straight and narrow path. If you can channel your imagination into the required form of communication, you should be able to relax in just a few days. But not yet. Your boss might move up a deadline on you. Or you may have to rearrange your calendar or alter your travel plans. Try to be flexible, whatever is the reason.

Um WOW. I have a mother who can't walk on my couch, a baby who could be here at any moment and I am trying to rewrite a partial. If I get a note from my editor asking for it pronto I will cue the Twilight Zone music!

Congrats on First Impressions! Sorry to hear about your mom's ankle. Sounds like you've got your hands full. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you don't get a call from your editor. :)
