Finished revisions! and movie week

I finally finished the massive revisions to Jack of All Trades that I've been working on most of the week. I got it up to 60,000 words, too--still not long enough to send to most of the big publishers that take unsolicited submissions, but at least it's kinda sorta novel length now and not just a novella. I'm going to send it to Tor first, because why not? Aim high. They reject fast, at least, so I don't have to wait a year to hear from them.

Since I've been off work this week, I saw three movies at the theater, two DVDs with my mom, and watched a few more movies at home on DVD. I like movies. In the theater I saw Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day--which was sweet and fun, the Spiderwick Chronicles--which pretty much sucked, and Horton Hears a Who--which was gorgeously animated and surprisingly entertaining. On DVD I saw Meet the Robinsons, which I own but which Mom had never seen before (she liked it), and Michael Clayton, which Mom had seen but I hadn't (I liked it).

My mom sees practically every movie released except for most animation; I see most animation and drag her along to the really good stuff. I've almost convinced her that she HAS TO SEE KUNG FU PANDA! It comes out this June. I can't wait!

Congratulations on finishing your revisions.

Thanks! Now that it's done, I actually wish I was still working on that project. I think it's just because I don't want to work on anything new right now--I'm so lazy.
