I've been busy today. This is the tragic end of yet another purple editing pen. #bookpeopleproblems

Day 1 of #riotgrams and here‘s an older reading selfie. I still look the same and just as tired - especially today considering I‘m traveling and historically can‘t sleep in hotels!

shawnmooney Just tag the founder @jeff with these requests and he'll make the changes. I bother him all the time with such requests. Right, Jeff? 2y
tif Thanks @shawnmooney! I was trying to find some kind of official account to ask and now I know it's @jeff we can bother!! :) 2y
jeff @tif @shawnmooney Probably easier if you either reach out via Help/Support from your profile settings in the app or email us @ contact@litsy.com. Thanks! 2y

Trying to get some work done. First one cat attacked my pen, in spite of the massive pile of cat toys available, then this one came to see what all the fuss was about, attacked the pen, and plopped down on my notebook. In spite of all that massive cuteness, I'm still trying to get through the current manuscript I'm working on. #catsoflitsy

You guys! It's 73 in Feb... in Colorado! I dug the sandals out of hiding, dusted off the picnic table, bought an icy beverage, and am sitting in the SUN working on edits! I am definitely taking advantage of this while it lasts 😊

The August 19 edition of the Guardian Books podcast was so interesting that I listened to it twice. If you have wondered about book editing, check this out. 👍

ReadingEnvy One of my favorite book podcasts for sure. 3y
