Wait no longer.
Thanks! I’ve found it super hard to get motivated to edit. It’s weird. I guess a part of me doesn’t want it to be over. Also, I probably don’t want to actually deal with all the holes and mistakes I know are sitting there taunting me from the page.
So I finished the first draft of my first novel. I expect to finish many more drafts of many more novels, but this one is kind of monumental. Now I’m going to rest my weary mind, forget about the story, then come back and edit the shit out of it like it was someone else’s work.
In the meantime, my brain is already wandering to the next story, the next novel. This novel writing is kind of addictive. I wonder if there are any side effects to this drug?
just remind yourself that there is a top 40 song on loop on the radio right now that repeatedly says:
You cast a spell on me, spell on me. You hit me like the sky fell on me, fell on me. And I decided you look well on me, well on me.
Well on me.
Well. On me.
And everyone just lets it happen.
So yeah. Make whatever the fuck you want.
I agree 100%!
