I admit it’s hard to stay away from something you’re familiar with including FB and WP. I went less on FB this month and didn’t even touch WP until now. I would love to say I’m further along on my rewrite, but, at least, I’ve made progress. My partner says a sentence is better than none. You know what I say to that? I should’ve done more. While I wished to be done with this within a span of two months, that probably won’t happen as I’m still working on a page nowhere near the end. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m a slow ass writer. But, it’s going to be a better story for it. I hope.
I was going to wait another month to see where I was in my rewrite, but what the hell, you only live once, right? I didn’t want to leave everyone hanging. Who doesn’t like to read about another writer’s bullshit? Throughout the month, I took breaks researching into publishing: self, small, large, the odds, etc. What a daunting task and thought. I guess that is why you take one step at a time. The other day I thought of me not living anymore. I wouldn’t be able to write. I wouldn’t be able to read. And the best one yet, I wouldn’t be able to watch Netflix or Hulu. I have no ambition to live forever even if it was a possibility, but it’s a weird concept either way. I should incorporate this into a future short story.
I’ve renamed my working title of my book as my partner said it sounded like a drug rehab book. I thought of a cover idea and who should be responsible for doing it. Again, things my partner said to think about when I’ve actually written it the best I can. Anyway, you go with the flow and do what you want (to an extent). I can only hope all these sweat, tears, and occasional fist pounding makes the second book I write/rewrite a lot easier. The pounding of the keys only stops when I’m really, really tired.
The other reason I’m writing is to say I changed my theme and plan to blog as much as I can without compromising and procrastinating with my rewrite. I’m moving to another state next month, which adds more onto my plate, but it needs to be done. On that note, I hope you are all having a good time and getting some much needed rest.
