It's 5:26 am and I haven't a Thing to Say

I didn't want to let too much time go by without posting something, but my mind's blank. I'm tired, but can't sleep. Ugh. It might have something to do with the fact that yesterday I got my first edit of my novella Invisible Rose from my Cobblestone Press editor. Those girls are THOROUGH! Boy, do I feel overwhelmed with all I need to do to get my writing in tip top shape, and a little down too.

I start to feel like I can't do it. Though I've written tons, I feel like the well might run dry any second and I won't be able to create anything interesting again. But I stuff down those feelings and I shuffle forward. At least I try.

Well at least it's Friday. Does anyone else ever feel daunted by all the editing?

    OhhhhhI hate editing!!! LOL But, that's not my fear, my fear is that I will never think of another thing to write about. Or, that I write one great novel and everything else sucks! LOL

    Happy Friday!

    With Love,
    Tara M.

    Tara,
    Yes, that's always present. Or what if I never write that great novel? Ahhh! :(

    Editing is tough but think of it as a lesson in writing. Because really after going through the edits, the next thing you write will be that much tighter. Trust me.

    :)

    So stop beating yourself up. :D

    Karen,
    Thanks. I made tons of leeway today, so I'm getting hopeful. I'm sure you're right. I will keep on the lookout for weaknesses and do my best to improve.

    Editing sucks, but isn't it better that you get a ton of edits and then you can fix them and make the novel/novella better?
