I was so happy to have the first draft done.
And then I was all, “Where do I start?”
And then I started and I was all, “This totally sucks balls.”
And then I kept going and I was all, “This really doesn’t stink as much as I thought.”
And then I was four chapters in and I was all, “I don’t remember writing this but it rocks!”
Or something like that.
It’s hard to accurately describe the thought process. A writer’s mind is a crazy thing sometimes. Well, most of the time. At least in my case. As evidenced by this stream-of-consciousness blog post.
And per usual, another story idea popped into my head last night. But instead of abandoning my revisions, I told myself that if I finished the current chapter I could write some new story words as a reward. Amazingly, that worked!
So I’m glad that I’ve been able to keep to my revising schedule. At this rate, I should have the first pass done in a couple of weeks. Huzzah!
