ROW80 Check In
The problem is that I am distracted by everything that needs to happen in the rewrite. I believe that this will be the best thing I have ever written once I work on it a little more, but for now it is a mess. That I want to clean up right now. But I have to distance myself from the manuscript before I can attempt an effective rewrite. I'm not looking forward to the waiting period.
As for other goals... I reread a short story and realized that feedback I didn't particularly want to hear was right on. So that is a bit of rewriting that I didn't expect, but want to take care of this week, if I can fit it in. I still have a lot of prep I need to work on, but it's hard when all I really want to do is work on my blog and read. But I have to think about life after the current novel and screenplay. I'm miserable if I don't have something creative to work on and I want to minimize the downtime between projects. I know what the next projects will be... I just need to break them.
