I didn’t touch my WIP over the long weekend. I was caught up in a DIY project and it took the better of my effort. In between, had some close friends over who are back in the US from a long expat stint 1/2 across the world, did some other DIY projects, went to the beach, in general avoided.
But I’ve set a goal for September 1 to release this title which is very optimistic since I still need to get it back to the editor for a 2nd pass. Wish me luck. The biggest issue – this is as much a rewrite as an edit phase. Big chunks are going to leave and big chunks still need to be created. Then of course the 5-10 passes for general grammar, proofreading and flow.
I can’t look at it like that right now, this big boulder blocking the path forward. If I do it will seem insurmountable. So instead, back to page 103. I have a new scene to write.
