Irony and Serendipity … (Reminds me of that wonderful song by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder)
Imagine my surprise when I opened up my emails this morning and found . . . My First Edits awaiting me!
Now, of course my editor has been working on them for a while, it’s 300 double spaced pages after all, but as my twin Muses Serendipity and Irony, are wont to point out, it’s interesting that her email turned up today.
I’m preparing myself with several bracing cups of tea before I open the file. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Another of Serenditpty’s Life Lessons here. You never know what’s going to happen once you let go of something.
I’ll continue chortling quietly to myself over here in my corner.
However Irony has the last word. Up until last week I’ve had exactly 4 migraines in my entire adult life. Last week I had 4 in 5 days! OUCH. Migraines effect (or affect – I can never get those two to make up their minds) the vision, and I kinda need my vision to edit 300 pages. The good news is that they seem to have subsided and I know what’s causing them.
Menopause. Irony’s last laugh, I am now officially a Menopausal Butch!!!
“Brain research tells us that only twenty percent of human beings have a sense of irony, which means that eighty percent of the world takes everything at face value” – Doug Coupeland
The link may not be to the right Doug Copeland, but after reading about him, this quote seems to fit.
