Yep, that’s me…
I’m jumping back in to my work in progress (WIP) for (hopefully!) a final revision. Why another revision, you ask?
Well … I enlisted the services of a terrific freelance editor for a professional perspective on my WIP, and there’s work to be done before I can seriously hop on the submission train with this project.
The reality of her comments, though less glamorous than my dream of instant best-sellerdom, was all-in-all delightfully encouraging. I’m 100% behind the changes she suggested, because I know they will make the story stronger. So, with leap-for-joy enthusiasm, I’m rolling up my sleeves and throwing myself in to revision-mode.
But here’s the thing…
While time is indeed relative, there’s only so much of it in a day. And since “the book” has to be my most important focus … after my day-job that is … I’m dialing back on the blog posts until this revision is complete.
I know. A blog post a week is hardly enough to stay connected in the bloggasphere. And even that might be a challenge once I’m submersed in my manuscript and swimming in my story.
But an author’s gotta do what she’s gotta do.
Life happens. And for everything there is a season, as Kristen Lamb wisely stated in a recent post. I’m entering Revision Season … which will pass in time too. If I stay focused on my WIP and the work at hand, that is.
Trust me, this is NOT farewell. I’m just slowing down on the blog posts so I can increase my WIP revision speed. That’s all. I’ll give a shout out whenever I come up for air. That’s a promise!
So … what season are you in these days?
Inquiring minds want to know!
