If you read my post Staring At the Finish Line… over a month ago and if you have a good memory you will remember that I gave myself a deadline.
Well, a month has passed and I haven’t finished yet (you don’t look surprised). Yes February was a slow month but I shouldn’t be making excuses considering I was even given an extra day by the Gregorian Calendar.
The good news though, is that all of my stories except one have gone through the second draft phase. But of course we all know that it doesn’t end with the second draft now, does it? I seem to have forgotten this fact a month ago. So God knows when I will actually be finished. I’m not giving myself another deadline this time but I will keep you posted on my progress.I know I complain a lot about editing (and I’m not changing my stance, it’s still a schlep) but I recently came across a writer named Beth Hill who has this truly awesome blog for writers and editors.
She dispenses great advice without overwhelming you. I strongly recommend her site. My favourite post is Creative Genius vs. Editing Witch. I found it very relevant and apt. Go check it out!
