Still, I feel like I've been plugging away at this one for far too long, and I'm more than ready to move on for a bit. Also, I have had the first chapter of the other book doing laps in my head for the past five months and I'm dying to get it written down.
This is all to say that I'm doing well on the writing front this week. I'm pleased with myself. That might all spiral out of control, as I received word yesterday that one of my friends and writer extraordinaire is now diving into the first book of The Great Man series (I think I might change that series name to include the word Chronicle or maybe Hagiography, because I'm fancy). Anyway, I asked her a while back to look at it, and tear it to shreds in order to make it the best it possibly could be. I've stopped trying to shop that particular manuscript. I'm holding off until I get her comments (and one other's) and fix the manuscript accordingly. I fully expect to be depressed as hell for a while as I'm re-editing that book, because chances are, the book needs a lot of work.
Two good writing days in a row has me feeling pretty good about life, currently, and more than makes up for the big disappointments I've been through of late. Yay!
So, my plan for today is to write like hell. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to finish today and can start editing. Wouldn't that be nice? A girl can dream.
On that note, I ought to go and do the work. Have a great day today.
