I want to offer my sincere apologies for not writing in well over a month. I know, I’m a slacker…and I’m kicking myself in the ass for it.
Truth be told, I’ve made the mistake of letting other things get in the way of making progress on my book…things like work, freelance, and just being lazy.
All terrible excuses, I know.
I’m starting to wonder what happened to my fire, my inspiration with this book. If I don’t have it, no one else is going to have it.
I thought writing the book was going to be the hard part…now that I’ve done that, I think the editing has put a gray cloud over me, as I know I have lots of work to do.
My first rounds of edits came in, and I want to thank everyone who helped me out. I’m almost embarrassed by the work I sent you, as I know it wasn’t my best.
The consensus was that I need to show, not tell, which I completely agree with. My frustration lies in the fact that showing is something I often do in my casual writing…I think when I sat down at my computer to write my book, I suddenly got all formal and weird about it…and it wasn’t quite me.
So, as I said, I have lots of work to do. Please stick with me.
Are there some writers out there? Has this happened to you? If so, how did you get through it?
I promise I won’t be gone for long…it’s time to get it crackin’!
