Today, a day of remembrance for those of us in the US, is an odd one, and yet there is still plenty out there to smile about. And on that note, my smile this week may seem odd to some – I have been doing a lot of editing over this last week.
A little over a year ago I thought I would have my book The Old Mill out by the end of the year. And maybe January. Or… For some reason, after I finished a draft in late September 2019, I dropped it and could not pick it up again until March 2020. OK, great, out to beta readers, and I could publish by mid-summer!
Anyway, I started editing again last Monday. Since then, I have been very deep into and have gotten a lot done. I think I should be done in a week. Then comes the formatting. Oh well, it isn’t easy ;)
But it is great to be working on it again. It is all clicking and going very well.
That is my smile, picking up editing after being away from it for a long time.
What made you smile?
Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week. Why don’t you share it? I hope you can join in!
Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas. If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity. Don’t smile about the misfortune of others. Don’t smile in a way to excludes others. Make sure a 12 year old can read it.
To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile. Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment :) ). You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me). Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile. (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST).
