So much work to do. SO MUCH…! Allergy season isn’t helping either. I’d never even suffered from allergies until recently and ughhhh, feeling sorry for everyone who has dealt with this all their lives. It’s awful and difficult to think straight much less concentrate when my head feels like it could burst at any moment. Needless to say, my productivity has fallen to the way side the last few days. I am dragging.
Currently I am trying to reconstruct my dismantled fourth draft into an enjoyably readable book. There’s a huge difference between the multiple drafts and rewrites and the actual book you have in the end.
But alas, it is my final draft. Final Draft!!! Ha! It’s a great feeling, truly. It’s also incredibly overwhelming some days. I shift back and forth between ecstatic and in control to down right baffled and confused. After four rewrites and almost a year, it’s like trying to erect the Eiffel tower out of a deck of cards — every card has to be just right or the whole thing will collapse.
I am confident at this point however that my summer goal will be met. Legend will look back at me through bright eyes and then the hardest part will begin. Queries… God help me.
