I spent four hours of my day helping my mother move out of her office. After the role I played in getting her fired (or reassigned, as they put it), it was the least I could do. As I walk away from today, I have a renewed understanding for why I hated working in an office and would prefer never to be a part of one again. Politics is frustrating enough in a family or set of friends…it’s simply Hell at work.
I’ve started working on the third draft of the novel. Since there are so few changes necessary, I am breezing through it. There are 52 chapters in all…and I just spent the past 90 minutes getting through the first five. A part of me just wants to finish off the draft over the next two days so I can focus on some other projects (like actually starting the Memory Project) while other people look it over. I’m at least going to continue editing for the next 80 minutes (I hate that the coffee shop in this town closes at six). Maybe I will continue working at home.
