journalpre-crashshadow queenthe wages of saltwriters is nuts


I need a new tag or category or something: writers is nuts.

Two weeks ago, I finished the beta draft of the novel. For values of finished = I couldn't stand the thought of the manuscript. In an example of avoidance excellence, I was getting to the point where, if anyone said "novel" in my presence, I would develop a bone-crushing weariness and a deep and abiding compulsion to nap, there and then. So, finished.

And now? I have the first comments back from one of the beta-readers.

And suddenly I am itching to work on the novel again, even though I know if I start before I have all the comments back I'll only have to go over old territory yet one more time.

Like I said, writers is nuts.

In other news, the short story? Still not finished. But close! Oh, so close.1

  1. I hope. []
