Thus continues the week of Stuff I Don't Wanna Do That Has to Be Done So I Can Get Back To Writing.

Today I must review that horrible racist manuscript - and yes, I did have to read the whole thing so I could review the whole thing! But I'm going to be asking in my notes for a better screening process next year. This should never have made it through.

Also must get caught up on e-mail, start on the next manuscript, get my ^$&^%*&( massage... the one thing I'm totally looking forward to today is a reading by Anne (and Sam!) Lamott.

As soon as I finish the manuscript reviews, I can get back to writing. I have been forced to essentially take two months off (packing, moving, unpacking, parental visit, reviews), and I Do Not Like That.

Onward! Nose to the grindstone!

The horrible racist manuscript? Is this something you've mentioned that I just missed out on?

See 'song's immediately previous LJ post.

I hope, as a reviewer, you are anonymous to the writers being reviewed?

I cannot recall any other instance of reading "massage" and a curse string used together.

I don't like them, but I've accepted that I need this one.
