I did not do my writing in the Throne of Writing (tm) last night. That was a mistake. I know I need to sit in a quiet, cat-free place and let my mind spray out into the page. But I didn’t do that. Tonight I will. With a little luck, I’ll get two stories done today to help make up for the Norwescon time off. One good thing is that I don’t lack ideas for stories, in fact it’ll be hard to stop once May rolls around.
May is almost here and that means I need to finish the final revision of Angel Odyssey, clean it and send it out. Then I start novel #3, which I have thoughtfully outlined. I’m trying to be considerate to my brain this time.
I’m also still battling self-doubt after the Angel Odyssey feedback. That’s one thing that never ends, that battle. Our mind creates monsters and we have to slay or ignore them to write and to publish. I will do this. Pain fades but the sense of accomplishment that accompanies finishing and submitting a novel stays with you much longer.
