You might've noticed, I finished the third draft of DLN last night. I've promised myself I'm going to let it simmer for at least a week before I look at it again. As with every previous book, I'm fighting the urge to scrap the whole thing and start over. :shrug: I think that's part of my process. I never quite feel like it's good enough. I coulda done better. I coulda been someone. I coulda been a contenda...
And now that Marlon Brando is done taking possession of my psyche, I'm off to do some more non-writerly things. If nothing else, I need to keep my fingers occupied so they don't touch that manuscript. Last night I had to make myself stop plotting DLN's sequel - affectionately known as DLN2. (Who says I'm not a whiz with titles? LOL) The whole world needs to marinate.
In honor of that lack of willpower, I attacked some non-writerly things today. Earlier, I swept the front patio and the driveway. Yay. I also ordered some books last week and they arrived today. So, of course, I put away the old Ray Bradbury I was reading and jumped into A Local Habitation by Seanan McGuire. And now I'm making a pork roast.
Damn, my life is just too exciting sometimes. ;o)
Of course, I could always start writing that new speculative idea I had last month... or I could go back and edit that manuscript I never quite finished... :slap: Snap out of it!
Anyhoo... What's up with you?
