Ok, do you know how frustrating it is when you want to post something and Blogger is having technical difficulties? GRR! Just when I make a promise to do better at blogging, I go to blog and can't. Thankfully, today I can. So here's what was supposed to be yesterday's blog:
Any of you ever have one of those days where one fix leads to another and another until you're stuck in what seems to be a never-ending journey of revisions and corrections before you can move forward? LOL!
Well, that was me yesterday. I got a LOT accomplished, but when I went back to review since it'd been almost 2 months since I've looked at this book, I realized I had some fixes to make. When I made them, I found out they affected a previous chapter. And when I fixed that, it meant I had to alter another one. And the hero's speech...every instance of it...had to be revised to reflect his Swedish heritage. Oy! What a time I had.
BUT, the good news is that I ended up putting the spit and polish on the first 13 chapters of the book and am on my way toward the final 4 chapters. And going back to review has given me a fresh perspective as well as ability to get in the groove, applying and employing the techniques my writing mentor pointed out to me. It's so great to have a EUREKA moment. *g*
Now, moving forward isn't such a daunting task.
