There was no Friday Freebie post yesterday because I couldn’t bear to write about what was going on: namely the dirty slogging of edits. Man, just when I think I’ve gotten tighter in my writing, autocrit gently points out my overuse of the word “gently” & serenity software wonders if I shouldn’t take a grammar refresher.


And the worst part isn’t even that I’ve used “it” 95 times too many (thanks Autocrit!) but the fact that for the life of me, I can’t get my brain to think of new ways of saying what I’m saying.

Working on the theory of persistence to win the day, however, I’ve been eating peanut M & Ms since 5:30AM in the hopes it will help me save the day.
