6:40 AM. Tea's brewing. Looking forward to doing a detailed chapter-by-chapter outline of this version so I can figure out where to I need to add/cut/change. Will this never end?

7:17 AM. I've been up for more than an hour, but didn't check in right away because I closed my laptop last night after I powered off, and when it woke at 5:45 this morning it got all confused and I had to reboot. While I was waiting, I started Morning Pages and then other stuff and now it's almost time for my walk! Anyway, I really was up early!

Good morning, all! Up and breakfasted and coffee's tasting pretty good. Looking forward to getting some work done before I head out.

I hope everyone has a productive day!

I'm here, not exactly early, though I've been up for hours. Got a headache.  :! Ugh. But the good news is, I get to see Eoin Colfer at our local indie bookstore tonight. I loved his Artemis Fowl series and his new one, W.A.R.P. sounds really fun.

I was up at 6:12 AM...and stayed up. I wasn't going to check in because it's the weekend but since JFriday is here, I thought I'd wave!

I'm up but can't get to writing for at least forty-five minutes. BUT! I heard back from my agent last night and only have a few line edits, then the WIP will be a sub!

I don't know what I am anymore.  I have now been awake for over thirty hours.  My sleep apnea is in over-drive and my CPAP machine isn't helping.  I can barely walk a straight line, let alone write a coherent sentence. (this was done by the aid of spell check. :lol4)  Went to the doctor and I have a sleep study set up for ... July 2.   :inbox:

I will soon collapse and then hopefully get the final touches done on my one manuscript to send it to a couple of Beta Readers.    So I have been up with with every sort of bird there is out there who has been working (or not) as the case may be.

Oh, liz, so sorry. You must feel awful. I wish they could help you sooner than that. I'm amazed you could even focus on the keyboard. Rest, friend, and maybe you'll drift off for a bit.

6:44 AM. Oh, Liz, I hope you asked the clinic if you could be put on a wait list.

I won't be checking in again until the end of the Memorial Day weekend--going out of town and won't have internet access.

Wow, Liz, I'm so sorry they can't get you an earlier appointment. I hope you're able to get some rest. Anne, I hope wherever you're going is fun and relaxing. I get to have a root canal this afternoon, and maybe get a wisdom tooth pulled. Whee!

Good morning. I'm gingerly sipping coffee. I did have the root canal, but the joy of having the wisdom tooth pulled has to wait a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, I'm working on  a synopsis for each of the books in my proposed series and looking forward to the upcoming long weekend.

Back in it and putting off revising MC in YA, but will get to it.  Vonna, glad one hurdle is done; Liz, hope you feel better, soon.  Off to chores of the day and perhaps revising a bit later...
Aloha and happy writing, all!

Haven't been writing early but I wanted to check in and see how everyone's doing. Yikes!! A root canal! Vonna, how unpleasant. I'm glad that's over and I hope the wisdom tooth isn't awful. Thank goodness for novocaine. Liz, so glad you got some sleep.

I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend - productive if you're writing, and enjoyable if you're visiting.

It's 7:00, but it is a holiday, so that's early! Had a great time being a moderator on Comicpalooza panels this weekend. It was a long, geeky weekend,  :superwoman  :grrr  :wizard:bellydancer  :yoda  :batman but I still came home and watched two Star Trek episodes. Now, I'm playing with ideas for a new story.  :yippee
