Cedar Fever is killing everyone in Austin!
It's so bad this year that the pollen in the air looks like smoke. Just about everyone I know is struggling with the severe allergic reaction called Cedar Fever. The one or two who seem fine make me want to smack them in the face! Ugh!
One friend told me she wants to take a flamethrower to the trees near her home, she's so miserable.
What does this have to do with writing?
Well, I sit at my computer and can't see the screen because my eyes won't stop weeping. I keep having to pause in my typing to sneeze. My head feels so mushy I can barely concentrate.
But, I am still slogging on with the edits! I'm more than halfway through the edits! The first three chapters were a little rough going for me. The second editor had changed up how he was presenting his edits and it ended up causing extra work on my end, then less. So we talked and he sent me a pdf with his suggestions and its been much faster since then. He is so amazing. He managed to revise a line that had just tormented me and make it perfect.
In other news, Dr. Pus has released all the chapters of As The World Dies in one podcast for your listening pleasure! There were some computer glitches that kept me from recording my lines and we had to find two actors to do the roles of Nerit and Ralph. We're back on a role again and I'm so excited. If you're bored at work, check out the podcast.
