I’ve had to admit – it’s part of who I am!
WRITING that is.
I try to take breaks occasionally – when life gets in the way – but then something happens to give me the boost I need to throw myself back on the mercy of my computer keyboard. I don’t know whether it was the good news of my contest finals last week or the fact that I know this week will be slightly less crazy than the last and that hubby will be away the following week, so I’ll have more time to write but something has got me back into it this weekend.
I’ve almost written 3k new words on the mss I’m revising for Carina. After realising I wasn’t ready to sub, I’d decided to reassess my deadline and told the editor that I’d get it to her early next year, but now I’m hoping that somehow I can finish this rewrite before Christmas. Saying that, this rewriting business is VERY scary because I’m changing quite a bit but in doing so I’m scared that I might be losing some of the stuff that made Carina request revisions in the first place.
Anyone else been in this pickle before? Got any good advice… or do I just have to plod on and follow my gut!?
