We all know that I finished my first draft of AT&B on Sunday, December 2nd at 4:01pm. That one I shouted from the roof top. In fact, I think Bill may have heard me over in Greenwich.
I wrote so many words that weekend (19k+) I couldn’t begin too start edits as my mind would not wrap around anything for several days.
It’s now been a week and I still have not begun them. My office is a wreck, the tree needs ornaments and…give me a second, I’m sure there is something else. I even have a great three chapter crit from Maven Lacey from the Manuscript Mavens. How much more can a girl ask for?
See what I mean. I’m finding excuses to not start on it. I didn’t actually realize that until this morning. I’ve made goals for this next part of the journey and still here I sit. Every time I pick it up ready to go, I sit there and decide not just yet. Or I think to myself, you really should clean out the fridge. Clean out the fridge??? Now who thinks that?
So, how about you? What do you do when you need to start your edits? How do you get yourself to go back to page one and begin?
Side note here: If you’re not reading the Mavens blog, you really should add it to your list of daily reads.
