First - thanks to all who left comments over the last couple of days - glad you enjoyed the story of our Sunday ride! And yes, Rene, I feel the same way about the B-52s (Love Shack being my fave - it's great for working out).
Now, back to my ms report. I didn't get quite as much done as I'd hoped, BUT - at least I did something :-)
During the day I worked on adding the hero's emotions to my opening scene. Like most men, he didn't want to tell me how he was feeling ;-). But as several people have pointed out, they really need to KNOW what's going on his head. So I had to force him to tell me. It was like pulling teeth, but I did find out a little of what's going on in there and put it into words for the reader. Not sure yet how good those words are, but it's a start.
Then after Sean went to bed last night, I did more FDin30D work on the ms - specifically, using the Supplemental Outline worksheet (# 18), to organize the changes I've noted need to be made to the ms.
Today I have to go to a funeral, so won't be able to get any real work done till this evening. But some things are more important.
Hope everyone has a productive day :-)
