I really shouldn't do it. I should be working and I will be tonight but instead of working today during the quiet times at work, I have been slacking off. I am delaying the inevitable, the rewrite of the ending of Coyote. Once I complete that, I will have no choice but to give it to people to read and find out if it works or if all my hard work is lacking, whether I will have to do more rewrites and more revisions and just more and I really, really, really want to this story finished, ready for readers and if I have to work more to get it there, then I don't really mind, I just hope, hope that it can be what it needs to be, hope that someone will like it and want to read it. As much as I enjoyed writing it. So I will be done with slacking tonight but for now, just a little bit more, so I enjoy the quiet, enjoy not knowing, bury my head in the sand for a tiny bit more.

This week I am working on revisions or should I make that still? I am about half way through and should be finished I hope by next week. I will still need to add in a layer of quotes for the character that references movies, not my skill area so I have to look up one for each time he makes a quote but I have marked out, rather like a map, where each one is. And my critique partner/beta reader read the first "chapter" and only found one thing to comment on and since she is a much better writer than me, that actually makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and accomplished. Yes, I know, too many ands but this is my place to be a bit informal. I am also loving how the voice of one of the other minor character's is working now that I've made some changes. Once I am done with what I think needs to be done then it will be time to hand it over to people and see what they think. And likely wash, rinse, repeat. But it's closer.
