I sent in my revised manuscript to the good folks at Blank Slate Press today…..at last! I have been working nonstop on this thing for quite a while now.
Haven’t posted anything on this blog, on my website, or on my Twitter feed while focused on the revision. Call me superstitious, but I felt like I had to keep my concentration on the work at hand. It was hard enough to go to work and engage in “work-style” writing and conversation. Once I’m in the tone, atmosphere, and diction of the novel, it’s a wrench to emerge from it and adopt a different level of language.
Starting to think that there has to be a streak of the obsessive-compulsive in all writers.
