I’m almost done with this edit. That doesn’t sound like a huge accomplishment, but I started back in May. (Yes, you read that right). In my defense, this isn’t really one edit–by the time I finish, each page will have been gone over at least 4 times.

I felt for a long time (read: all summer) like I was spinning my wheels without getting anywhere. I’m an instant gratification kind of gal so my motivation was shot all to heck as this edit moved along like a turtle with arthritis.

Then I found my motivation.

Star Trek!

I am now rewarding myself with episodes of Star Trek. (I’m so cool I used to read The Next Generation magazines in band class). I make my editing goal, I get to watch an episode. I think I’ve seen every episode at least twice, some more like ten times.

I know some of you are Next Generation fans. Extra points for anyone who can guess my favorite character or episodes!
