Well, I've been handed a dose of "reality check" on a silver platter this week. I'm still aiming to jump into the query wars in the next couple of weeks, but I think it's going to take a little longer than previously imagined. Nothing like a major rewrite to derail plans, eh?
As I've contemplated this, I've found that my heart isn't in blogging right now. I really want to just plunge in with full force and knock this latest round of revisions out of the ball park. I've seen on many other blogs that people will sometimes go in spurts like that. Blogging block happens when writer's block doesn't or something. So far, that hasn't been a problem for me, but I feel it looming. to prevent that, I'm taking the next two days off. I want to get back on track with my goals. I love the blogosphere and miss it terribly when I'm away, but that time is really valuable to me, so I'm using it where it will do the most good. Figuring out what the heck I'm doing with my WiP. (Today is an I hate editing day, just FYI.)
Before I go, though, I have a question for the world at large. I try to respond to comments. I really do. Sometimes, it's just a little spit on the page, but really, who comes back to check? Sometimes, it's with an
email. (If I can respond that way.) Which one is better? What works best for you?
Now, go forth and write. I'll see you all on Monday.
