Rain, rain go away…not!

Two lovely things happened today.  I think I mentioned this before.  If not then I probably should have.  I finished my rough draft.  All 443 pages and around 93K words.

Today I went out and had the manuscript printed out.IMG_0893  It’s about an inch thick.  For a long time I’ve always worked with computer files.  This is the first time I’ve gone out and plopped down money to print something I’ve written.  It actually makes it real.

Now comes the hard part, all those revisions and stuff.  I know it’s crappy, so this is the time I get to see just how bad it really is so I can fix it.

The other lovely thing that happened, or is happening right now is that there’s clear wet stuff falling from the skies.  I’m like “what is this?”  See, where I live we should have over 5 1/2 inches of rain since the beginning of the year.  Until today we’ve had maybe 0.8 inches.  Yeah, it’s bad.

I luv the sound of rain hitting the windows.  It’s just a lovely white noise.  I hope I get to hear more of it as the days pass.

Now that I think back, I probably did post about finishing my rough draft.  I guess I don’t remember because I slept since then.  😉
