UP: Lots of snow predicted!
DOWN: Predicted for yesterday, which was bone-dry. It’s finally started snowing a teeny bit here in Manhattan, but it is not the fluffy winter wonderland we were promised.
UP: FedEx is sending my very, very final edits to Evernight back to HarperCollins!
DOWN: But first, they mistakenly sent them to Utah. UTAH.
(Note: I live in New York. I mailed the edits from a location approximately 20 blocks from HarperCollins. And they sent them to UTAH.)
UP: FedEx finally found the package in Utah and got it back where it needed to go.
DOWN: I had to rename the male lead of the entire Evernight series, and on such short notice that I only had two days to choose!
UP: His new name is Lucas, which already I like so much better than the name that came before.
ALSO UP: My new sofa arrives Saturday, which means my apartment will actually be completely finished by Feb. 1.
With more ups than downs, I think this week’s roller-coaster ride gets a Wheee! instead of an Aaaaaaghh! Although I was thinking a lot of variations on Aaaaaagh! when my edits were lost in Utah.
