I Woke Up Excited This Morning

Have you ever had one of those days that just excites you before you even open your eyes? I did this morning. I woke up excited to get started with my manuscripts. In fact I've already put grammar spell check on Scarred and fixed a couple typos, and now I want to sink my teeth into this novel and make it better than ever. Last night I was working on Freedom's Cry, which is the fourth in the series, and I needed a question answered that has plagued me for quite a while. I didn't think it would be easy to find the answer, but I got it on the first try. That never happens, so this morning I was doing some work on Scarred and later I will be getting Freedom's Cry straightened out as well, and then move forward once again with both projects. I am determined that the second editions of Scarred, Manifest Destiny, and Stowaway will be better than the first, and Freedom's Cry will benefit from all I'm learning as I get those three ready for their new debut. Tonight is also Writer's Guild, and I can't wait to get back to that. We didn't meet last month due to a snowstorm that shut down the city. It's snowing again today, but not as bad, though we already have half an inch at least. . Things are looking up so far today. My oldest is also gone and hopefully at work. It's a great day, and I'm going to enjoy every moment of it. I hope your day is going well. Thanks for reading.

I am so happy right now I'm smiling ear to ear. I'll be taking my son to school in a short while then I will have the house to myself for the rest of the day. I won't be picking him up from school until after Writer's Guild tonight, so I should get a lot done today with my writing and even some housework that needs doing.

Thank you. It's going to be a great day and I'm going to be alone for most of it. My youngest has school and my oldest isn't here, hopefully he's working. So I will be able to get a lot done without interruption.

@Scindhia The highlight - I did so much yesterday, which is still today since I haven't been to bed yet. It is 1:30 AM. I'm going to have to say getting some work done on my novel. I completed another two chapters of editing as I move forward with it and complete the novel and ready it for publication.

I'm just about done here, and then it will be book time and maybe housework too. I LOVE the fact I'm alone in the house. I can get so much more done than when everyone is under foot. My smile won't go away.

It was a great day. I've been through the notifications once, got some dishes done, I know, not all of them, but at least I did them, and Writer's Guild was great tonight. I invited a friend to go with me, and she went, she's also writing a biography about one of her children. It was a great meeting. I've also worked on two chapters of my current manuscript, and now I'm back to work on notifications again. It's been a full but productive day for me.

I also love those morning when I wake up excited to get started on something. I hope you make a lot of progress on your book today! We have snow and ice here and boy it was a long, cold walk with the dog.
