ROW80 Check-In 8/17
Morning everybody! Hey, I'm on time this week :)
I've also been more productive compared to last check in. Woo hoo :)
I'm dealing with some self-doubt on my novel, so edits are going slower than I'd like, but I'm meeting the rest of my goals, and for that I'm happy. I just wish I knew what was triggering the self-doubt.
Originally I'd given myself a deadline to be finished. I wanted it all polished and sparkly and ready to send out. But I had rewrites to do and changes to make so it can morph into the planned series. I think somewhere along the way I also decided that I needed to agonize over each and every word so that I'm no longer moving forward at the originally intended pace.
So, my goal for this next bit is to work on ways to lose my perfectionist inner editor and remind myself how much I enjoy and love this book. Because I really do love the story and characters, and had a blast writing it. Obviously I prefer the creative stage more than the editing stage, but it's part of the business.
Cheering you all on your paths to success!
