Well, it looks as if my writing break is officially over. I know, I know, some of you are rolling your eyes and saying I never really took a break. That's not true. I did take quite a bit of time off. I can't stop completely or someone might get hurt.
I received edits from the nonfiction editor last Friday. Merry Christmas to me! I put off looking at them or cogitating on them because of the holidays and I was finishing a content edit. Now, though, I can't ignore them any longer.
I was overwhelmed at first. It was one of those moments that made me think, "What's the point? It's never going to be good enough." (I have a love/hate relationship with this book. This was a hate moment.) Then, I slapped myself a couple times and told myself it would only make the book better. I sat down and looked at his suggestions. In reality, they aren't that bad. They are totally manageable.
So, everything will once again be put on hold so I can mold this book into a masterpiece. I think I have to have it done by the end of January, so that's my goal. As usual, you will know how it goes!
