Oh My Gawd!

I'm about ready to take my claymore letter opener and stick it in my eye. I'm pretty sure that will be less painful than what I'm doing. For at least the last hour I've been trying to finish my revisions to my Heart to Heart contest entry so I can e-mail it tonight. I love what I've got, love the changes I've made, BUT...there's one line I CANNOT figure out how to fix. It's a response to an already killer line that I don't want to cut, but I've gone through so many ideas already and nothing fits. I'm staring at the computer screen and hoping the right words will magically appear if I stare long enough. So far NOTHING! One line, one itty bitty line to be as kick-butt as the rest of the entry. Is that too much to ask for? Apparently YES!

Update: Yippee! It only took me MOST of my day off, but I FINALLY found the perfect phrase! This calls for some ice cream!

ROFL. Way to go. Sounds like a productive day to me. :)

BTW...did you get your words in today???

Lexi said...

Yes, I managed 182 words on my first day of the challenge!

Congratulations! I had the same kind of day off a few weeks ago trying to figure out my revisions. I got stuck on one thing and it took the whole day to figure it out. What a relief when I finally did!

Kelly, I don't think anything else says I'm a writer as well as spending an entire day on one word or phrase!

I'm glad it worked out, Lexi! :)

Thanks, Bonnie!
