This week has seen several tipping points, significant thresholds, points of no return, coincide in different parts of my life. None of them life-changing, but they all add up to make this a week of unsettling change.
This week, we finally had to have one of our cats put to sleep. It's always a tough decision, especially when it's not clear-cut and an animal is just getting steadily more ill. This one's had cancer eating away at her nose for years, starting off as nothing more than discoloration, but gradually eating into her face. This past year saw a noticeable change, and the last month she'd been deteriorating faster. This week, we decided her time had come.
On another front entirely, today we switched our cable and internet over to Telus. Lots to get used to, but things are looking good so far. I am relieved to have my wi-fi back again to post this.
And last weekend I passed 50% in my novel revision. Now I'm on a roll, and also have a realistic idea of how fast I can plough through this, I am aiming for 100% by the end of February. The word count is still inching downwards, which is good because I need a few thousand words to play with for a couple of scene additions, and I still want to stay below 100k.
Oh, and I've got addicted to Minecraft. I have an innate need to create things, and right now I have no building projects on the go and am not writing original content, so this is helping to keep me sane through the revision process.
