first draft done! and the intriguing implications of a bi-literate brain
I ended up rewriting the entire last third part after much thinking and while I am satisfied, I still think it needs a hearty scrub-a-dub to get out the bossy bits. ;) So, I've got two rough drafts to smooth out before the end of the month -- a nice weekend project, I hope. They would both benefit from sitting for a day or two. And I have a very short rough draft of an extra that I worked on last weekend as a freebie for How Sweetly the Whippoorwill Sings. (Pretty sweet, huh?) I also had a mysterious mark on my To Do List that said "September 16th Due Date" and I can't remember why I wrote that down. Did I miss a deadline? I can't remember! I hope it was not something really, really important but I don't know. :/ ~~~ In other news, I heard a most intriguing news piece on the radio today: http://www.thetakeaway.org/story/paper-vs-plasma-how-digital-reading-shift-impacting-your-brain/?utm_source=local&utm_medium=treatment&utm_campaign=featuredcomment&utm_content=article Apparently reading on a screen and reading on paper are *not* processed the same way within your brain. They are working on what that means for us. What do you read on? Paper? Screen?
