an epiphany

I had an epiphany in the shower this morning.

It's not a very big epiphany, and it won't be interesting to anybody except me (well, ok, maybe five people on my flist), but I just like to say things like that on my journal. It makes a person wonder what the hell it is I'm doing in the shower in the mornings. :)

I have to do line edits today, which I'm looking forward to with approximately the enthusiasm of a ... not very enthusiastic thing. They're not really hateful, just *tedious*. But first I'm going to write a thousand words or so just so I don't totally lose momentum on HoC. Am I a party animal or what? :)

*stupid grin*

Ok, the *best* part of doing line edits is finding the smilies and hearts that my editor leaves in the margins, especially when she puts them next to bits that I particularly like. My seduction scene here has not just a smiley, not just a heart, but a smiley surrounded by *two* hearts. *silly giggles*

I must also confess that when she said AUGH REWRITE THE END that writing a totally happily-ever-after ending was...really fun. I actually grinned like an idiot all the way through writing it. Even just seeing the last few lines when I pulled out the manuscript to edit it made me beam stupidly.

This job doesn't suck. :)
