I’m having a hell of a time getting any forward momentum on the next stage of editing the book.
Admittedly, I’ve had precious little time to really focus on it over the past month – but when I get a spare moment, I crack open the Google Doc and try to make some headway — the same way that I wrote the thing in the first place.
This feels like work. Ew.
Which it is! This is the actual part where a pile of text becomes a novel. Everything leading up to this don’t count, if I can’t edit it properly.
Part of the problem is I need higher brain functions online to solve a lot of the notes that I’ve made — and that sort of thing is in short supply. I’m feeling out what process works best for me, just like the drafting stage — I guess I need to try blocking off more time, away from distractions.
Because free time just falls out of the sky. Commonly.
So, yeah – waaah, waaah, give the baby his bottle.

Hang in there. You can do it. I just finished the draft of my novel. I’m gonna let it sit until after I get back from vacation (June 4th).
You want to do an edit challenge when I get back? A chapter a week? See who can finish first? I have 30 chapters, plus a prologue.
Just a thought…
I really like the thought, but I think my book’s waaaay shorter than yours — wouldn’t exactly be fair…Let’s talk about it when you get back.
If it works, great. If not, no worries. We’ll get it done one way or another. 🙂
