I am halfway through this current rewrite of Jasper (# 64 you ask? No, stinker. It's only, like, #5 or something. So there).
And I had some issues. Some self-doubt. Some worry. It was a major "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah!" moment. I was feeling like I'd wasted the last year.
It was not pretty.
Luckily I also had my critique group tonight.
Lana and Emalee talked me off of my ledge. They reassured me. And told me the things I needed to hear. I feel much better. Wooh. That was a close call.
I might have done something horrible during this Mid-Book Crisis. Like trying to make myself feel like a good writer again by buying a flashy red convertible, er....I mean....flashy red office supplies? And this analogy seems to need something to do with a blonde. Maybe blondies? Yes. I might have made a whole pan of Blondies. And eaten them all. Ok. I think this analogy has officially died.
Anyway, I'm mostly better. I wrote for an hour tonight. And I will continue on. Push forward. And all that jazz and nonsense.
And on a random side note (you all know how I love my random side notes)....
Any other writers using *Pinterest as a way to put together boards about their works in progress? It's a great way to waste time....wait. I mean, to inspire yourself. Yep. That's right.
