revision marathon

I'm about 2/3 of the way through the book doing light revision--typos, looking for small problems, finding things I want to weave more tightly into the fabric of the book, etc.
My thought is--I really need a massage. Sitting at your desk for this long is serious wear on the body. My shoulders are tight and my spine is twisty. Plus, I need more chocolate. I've eaten most of a Lindt 70% bar, a chili-spiced Dagoba, and a leftover Godiva truffle I found in my purse. For a while I had a cacao high going, but now I've crashed.
Tonight, D (who is doing all the revision-era cooking) is making venison stew, there are brownies in the freezer, and we're going to watch some Bob Newhart (the 1st show--I hate the 2nd innkeeper one). Plus I've bought a copy of Soap Opera Digest, so I can enter more fully the restful world of daytime TV. Is Reva really going to die of cancer? I'm looking forward to worrying about someone's characters besides my own.

Hey, why don't writers get to lounge around in maribou-trimmed lingerie. Well, maybe Danielle Steele does.

I wish I had someone to do revision-era cooking for me! Well, maybe he would if it weren't taking months and months.

Okay, I finished revising tonight. Just now. Woo-hoo!

I'm going to go drink a glass of wine.

Oh you are so inspiring! I'm with you on the chocolate, massage and the lounging around afterwards.

You can always find me lounging on a red velvet couch in fur-trimmed negligees.

Actually I'm more of a 10 yr old sweatshirt and elastic-less pants girl...especially when writing.
