Yesterday, I read an interesting article in the June issue of Woman's Day magazine.

One part of the article read, "One great way to give yourself a mood boost is to tackle an untidy area one step at a time. Get rid of some things you don't use (you probably don't need eight glass vases that came with floral arrangements). Chuck broken things" (Woman's Day, June 2010, page 16).
Then... I received a very helpful critique of the first chapter of The Education of Thia. (From my fabulous new critique partner Christi!!)

One part of the critique read, "I wonder why you use this? ... Clarify or dump it."
So, I plan to give myself a mood boost today and tackle one untidy area at a time. Ha. Chapter by chapter, line by line, word by word, I will tidy up my manuscript and make it the best thing ever! Well... besides chocolate and sex and love and ... okay, maybe I'll just make it the best possible story it can be!
Off to work.
But, first, let me know what chaotic thing in your life you plan to eliminate, or improve, today?
