This week, I don't really have any insecurities (that was last week) but I do have a grievance that I need to get off my chest.
I am so tired of editing!
Normally, editing doesn't bother me that much. I can open a WIP and read through it, tweaking this and that. Notes from a crit partner I procrastinate a bit, but that's because I'm afraid of what they have to say. Eventually, I crack their notes open and edit. But I went and looked through my AYWN? posts and discovered I have been doing edits non-stop on various WIPs since the beginning of the year.
That's a half year of just edits. How am I still alive? How have I not gone insane? (Friends will remind me that I'm not sane so that question is moot.)
I think it's time for a little break. This week I made plans on leaving edits alone and reading. Thanks to the day job that's not going too well. Your day tends to get ruined when the work day ends at 6pm. By the time I eat dinner and check my email and twitter, it's after 8. We'll see if any reading gets done. As long as I don't do any edits, I'm going to call the week long break a win. Next week, it will be back to the grind.
I'm going to need a lot of motivation, kick in my butt, and various threats from you.
PS: I'm stilling looking for blogs to join Cyc's birthday bash next month. Sign up here and I will love you forever.
