Dear Future Publisher,
Did you miss me?
I know I disappeared for a while, and I hope you will forgive my negligence. I found it unsustainable to continue blogging while drafting. I had only so many words a day to give and I wanted and needed to give those to my WIP. Apparently I am not a bottomless trough of unmitigated genius (alack and alas). At the end of a long day of drafting, I felt completely unequal to writing more words. I had used them all.
The good news, of course, is that I’ve finished drafting. The first draft of the current WIP is complete (hurrah!) at 122,419 words (which is way too many words for this project), and I am all set to begin the long process of extensive revisions and pulling my hair out while questioning my life decisions. And during that process, I plan to use any spare words to re-enter this world of blogging if and when I can – to save some words, dear, dear publisher, for you.
So, I’m back! They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder – do you think it’s true?
