This week I'm celebrating:
1) I revised 9 chapters this week, putting me at 27 out of 33!!
2) At this rate, I'll definitely be done revising next week and get the ms off to one more CP and a beta or two.
3) I credit my warp speed to The Muppets. For some strange reason, their adorable song "Mahna Mahna" has been stuck in my brain for a week, from morning till night. (The name may not be familiar, but if you listen, you'll probably recognize it immediately.) It's such a cheerful song I can't help feeling optimistic and energized, and the revised chapters are flying by!
Do you ever get a certain song stuck in your head? Does it affect your mood or your work?
