A One-Twenty Day

Did a second set of sixty pages; these, too, were tight and fun and tense. So for the day, I edited a total of 120 Hawkspar manuscript pages, roughly 24,000 words.

I’ll consider going back at this again later today, but probably won’t, considering the amount of laundry that’s built up during all the earlier bad days. My most likely course of action is to do clothes today, then see if I can get through another 120 pages tomorrow. Or better. Better would be cool, too.

Especially in clean, folded, sorted clothes.

    Indeed, it’s wonderful to know you’re progressing onward. Here’s to smooth sailing the rest of the way.

    Glad that things are looking up…looking wonderful. After Talyn, can’t wait for Hawkspar. Or the Onyx book… Or….:)

    The Dao which can be perceived is not the true Dao.

    The Tao quote — wildly appropriate.

    I’m what I think of as a “struggling Taoist” — itself a contradiction in terms. There are parts of the Tao that I attempt to follow daily, and parts I refuse to even consider because I disagree with them.

    The Tao is, however, my favorite of all the texts that could be considered sacred.

    Strangely, I was at PBW’s site just before stopping here and followed her links to the Tao te Ching. I clicked on one at random and found the below just before reading this post . . .

    Better stop short than fill to the brim.
    Oversharpen the blade, and the edge will soon blunt.
    Amass a store of gold and jade, and no one can protect it.
    Claim wealth and titles, and disaster will follow.
    Retire when the work is done.
    This is the way of heaven.em>

    Struck me as appropriate . . .

    Whew Holly. It’s so good to see that WIP bar moving. Here’s to hoping that the rest of the write in goes as well.
