The title of this post was meant to be sing-song style, not unlike Debbie Reynold's in Singin' In the Rain singing, "Sunset and Camdon!" If you haven't seen that movie in a while you are missing out. Best musical ever! At least in my humble opinion.
But I digress. I did manage to finish the 3rd and I hope final rewrite of my MG book, Big Chief's Gold. That is still a working title so don't be alarmed that it stinks on ice. Now I have endless edits before I start to farm it out to agents and possible publishers. Should be an interesting experiment. I did enjoy writing it. How else can you explain rewriting the same story 3 times, from different points of view or characters. I wouldn't do that with just any story. Most I would have given up on long before that happened.
So what happens today. First I need to go to the lumberyard and pick up more drywall so I can finish that bedroom I started two months ago (it is looking really good. I just have the closet and part of the walls to hang and then I finish and paint the walls, trim it out and call it done.) It should be the quietest room in the house, because I have taken the time to soundproof it with mucho insulation. this afternoon I need to clean the house. So I think It is safe to say that my writing is done for the week. Stick a fork in it and hope it all comes back to me on Monday.
Until Monday, have a great weekend. And now for you viewing pleasure a scene from Singin' in the Rain, Donald O'Conner in Make 'em Laugh. I don't know how old he was when he did this scene but it had to be hard on him.
