Rough Draft Done, the Fun Begins
There is something exhilarating when one finishes the book. Last Sunday, I finished ILLUMINATION, and sent it off. Not for submission--now I want it ripped to shreds, so I can revise it to within an inch of it's life.
I have to let it sit, but it's making my fingers itch. The urge to write affects me like drawing used to. I knew when it was time to create because I get a strange sensation in my hands telling me to do SOMETHING.
So, what have I done? I redid my website, changed the colors, added a few things, removed others. I've started to read. I am cleaning my house. It's exciting. I'm even going to cook---which makes my family ecstatic.
I'm also going to devote a bit more time to getting more things set up on my blog--I'm bringing in all sorts of authors. I want to talk to those who are published through the regular routes, those who go digital, others who are self-published.
Why? Because I love good stories. It doesn't matter where they are from. I want to share them to. It also serves another purpose--inspires me.
In the next few weeks, I'll share with you what I'm reading and how the revisions are going.
Which reminds me--I have book Three to think about and a Novella I have in mind...
Oh there are projects-0-plenty.
What do YOU do after you finish a big project?
