I realize it’s been rather quiet round these parts, so I thought it might be time for a quick catch up.
First up, we took a trip to New Zealand to visit family (fun!) and attend a wedding (on the beach!). It’s been 10 years since our last trip, so we had to learn the new lingo – everything is choice, sweet as, or lovely.
Since we were there last, they’ve made a huge effort to encourage the native birds back into the cities, which was lovely to see. This is a tui in my aunty’s backyard.
We went on a few walks in the bush.
And ate our way through my favorite Kiwi treats – meat pies, custard squares, hokey pokey ice cream, jelly tips, fruit cake and many others, like these delicious coconut haystacks (thank you Mum!).
And of course, fish and chips.
At the beach.
And then it was back home to my revisions for PROVE IT, JOSH (new colored pens required!).
Which I just sent to my editor on Sunday. Yay!
How about you? Did I miss anything while I was gone?
Loved seeing your photos Jenny and catching up on your latest happenings. Ten years is a long time between visits. Must have been fun. Congratulations on getting your revisions into your editor. I’m impressed! Good luck with PROVE IT, JOSH.
Maybe some day you can share your coloured pen revision process!
Thanks Chris! We had a great time in NZ – it was hard to come back to winter 😉
I was thinking about writing about my revision process. The colored pens were my carrot for just one more round of proofreading – I never use red, but the colors do stand out more than blue or black, and make it more fun.
Congrats on finishing your revisions, Jenny. How thrilling to be getting closer to seeing your book in print!
Thanks Ray! There will be more changes and edits yet, but this felt like a big step 🙂
