Day 5

During April I am finishing the proofs of Forget You, dealing with the ARCs, and writing 40,000 words of the new novel, which I will get to any second, I swear.

Yesterday my goal was to make it through the whole proof, and I did! I deserve a parade.

However, I'm not starting the new novel today. This is the last time I will see Forget You before it comes out on July 20, and I feel like I need to take a day to delete a word and put it back and take it out and put it back and drive myself completely insane before finally throwing the manuscript in the FedEx box with a primal scream. The details are different, but the feeling is exactly the same as losing my green pencil.

Your turn!
