As I ponder, weak and weary

When do you know you’re ready for a second edit? I think I’m ready, but I’m not sure.

I’ve been over the new chapters and the revised scenes over and over again. I think I’m overthinking. Which means it’s ready for edit, right? When I can’t find anything else to change? Who knows. So there’s the pondering.

I’m not really “weak” at the moment–maybe a bit hungry–but I’m definitely weary. It was my first day back at work after a 5-day mini vacation, and starting the short work week off with a 10-hour shift is a bit of a jolt to the system. My body is fighting wakefulness with every second. I still have things to do tonight, though, so I can’t go to sleep yet (and I’ve already had a short nap, so any more would just be obscene).

Listening to some new music to review right now, but even the hard rock screaming is not keeping my lids open. Perhaps tomorrow morning I’ll have more luck.
