The end is nigh…

The last edit of this manuscript is dragging. It’s not the edits, not really, it’s me. I’m procrastinating. I’m at the finish line and I’m hesitating.

I need to be held accountable, only I’m really clever with the excuses. I believe my own lies. So, here’s the truth of it…

Tentatively titled, CLAN, I’m sitting at around 103,000-ish words for this novel. After having the wise and extraordinary editor, Jeff Seymour, give it a read and provide his magical advice, I’m on my last edit before submission.

Next steps…

  1. Finish these goddamned edits.
  2. Write a query letter.
  3. Stop being so fucking lazy and get to those edits.
  4. Query agents.
  5. Those scene updates won’t write themselves!
  6. Cross fingers.

If you’re reading this, message me and ask me where I am. Don’t believe me when I tell you I’m almost done. Push me, berate me, tell me I should just give up. Actually, don’t do that. That reverse psychology bullshit won’t work on me and I’ll end up using you as my new excuse. Still… if you have a second, give me a push. A well-meaning ‘atta girl goes a long way with inspiration to keep gnawing away at it.
