Novel Update #8
I have failed.
I humbly acknowledge my failure in completing my Novel before the end of June.
Try as I might, summer has gotten the best of me and my precious writing.
I wanted to be efficient and productive but alas find myself trying desperately to sneak in a little time here, a sentence or episode there.
Since this is the most “down time” I have yet to have all summer, I have finally gotten back to the manuscript.
The kids are in camps and visitors are not expected again until at least the weekend.
Yet in the meantime, there is a birthday to plan, baking to be done, decorations to go up, a house to be cleaned and groceries to be stocked.
So this is why I have felt the need to come clean and admit, I am struggling a bit here.
I did however finish TWO CHAPTERS today. So I must be pleased with that result and celebrate tiny victories.
Fallout is almost done… For REAL!
I have a few more chapters left and then plan on taking a breather from it til Fall.
Then I will begin my own editing en route to finding a proper Editor.
So my friends, there you have it, yet another confession from a struggling writer trying so earnestly to liberate her inner story while attempting to navigate daily LIFE in all its swiftness.

Life does get in the way, doesn’t it? I agree with Tonia, you are being hard on yourself. Some people take years to write books, and I’m beginning to understand why! Keep at it!
Thanks Sue. It’s always reassuring when fellow writers remind me of the realities of this joyful profession. I did get 4 chapters done last week. So as I say I must celebrate little victories 🙂
4 chapters in one week is pretty good, if you ask me! It shows you’re in the zone!
