Five Things

1. It's the last week of February!

2. I turned in a review this weekend and made notes and selected excerpts for two previews.

3. I dug out a 17K draft I'd last edited in February 2011 and poked at it some, mostly deleting stuff, before stopping in despair. Will have to go back to it soon. I can't waste that much writing! I just have to figure out how to make it work. As something. *whimper* Read over a perfectly nice 5K erotic scene that was cut from an unfinished manuscript, but am not sure what to do with that either, as it is extremely low tension (in the plot sense); it needs more framing. Thinking about it.

4. My weekend exercise was minimal; spent too much time in bed reading (see 2 and 3).

5. My taxes are progressing! I spent Saturday evening collating all my tax-deductible expenses on a spreadsheet. Am very grateful to whomever it was in the distant past who mentioned keeping all receipts for each convention or event in a separate ziploc bag, labeled with a sharpie.
