So kids, it looks as though I've fallen off the wagon. (No, I'm not a drunk! Although I understand the concern after all the comments about wine....Mmmmmm Wine......Ok Marybeth...FOCUS) The writing wagon is sitting next to me, bouncing up and down, and begging me to jump back on.
It looks as though not only did I "consider" taking a break from my novel, I actually took quite an extensive hiatus from my precious manuscript. How could I!?!?! So today, it is with great enthusiasm that I announce...."I'm editing again!" My gnome has guarded my story long enough. It is time, I am going to embrace my characters and their stories. I am going to take them to a place they never thought they'd see....not sure what that place is just yet.....but they'll see it damn it!!! :)
I know I've said it before, but this time I mean it. (Oh dear...that doesn't sound convincing does it???) Well, I have no choice. May 1st is lurking, and it is my personal deadline to finish the 2nd draft before that day. So wish me luck friends!
Have you ever fallen off the writing/editing wagon? What did it take to get you back up on that ol horse?
