Like a vacuum cleaner!
I’ve finally gotten my butt in gear and started editing my manuscript again. I wanted to read over the first two chapters again and edit a printed copy but I wasn’t making any progress with that so I shrugged my shoulders and moved on with my life. The copies are there for when I need to look over them later.
I was quite industrious for 20 minutes before a raging sinus headache won out and I lost all energy and motivation to do anything but breathe. I don’t think I’ve had a sinus headache that bad in forever! Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I’ve had one so bad.
It’s because my brains have been stuffed into my sinus cavity. They sit there waiting, not even leaking really, just waiting until I get tired of the pressure and blow my nose. Then it’s a never-ending task of blowing out a river of mucus. It’s so nasty. Infected too which probably accounts for the pain in my sinuses.
I wonder if that connection between the infection and the headache is true. Sounds good to me.
It’s better today at any rate. So I get back to my editing and still have page 31 out of 214 staring me in the face.
Out of 214.
And I plan on adding quite a bit more.
Sigh. Editing sucks. Fitness is so much easier. I can train for and finish a 5k race in less time than it takes me to edit my entire manuscript.
*NOTE: Currently on page 36 after nearly an hour and a half editing yesterday. There was a lot to change. I’m just happy I lasted that long.*
I’ve given this one before but it’s a good thing to do so I’ll give it again considering today’s topic. Are you currently writing something? If so, go back and edit what you’ve written so far. Aim for 15-30 minutes.
