Well, all, there's not much new with me. I'm still drafting, still going slooowly, and becoming a bit frustrated with myself. I wanted to write this book in 3 months (my personal best so far). Then I saw that wasn't going to happen, so I decided 5 months would be my new deadline.
5 months has come and gone, and now I'm determined to finish by the end of October, which will have me completing the first draft in 7 months. Which I know is still good, and that I shouldn't be hard on myself when I have a day job and a kidlet and things like trash that needs taking out, and clean clothes that need worn and floors that don't crunch underfoot.
That aside, I'm anxious to get into revisions and start making this book into something more than a hot mess. So I just need to use October to get it DONE. I've already decided I'm going to go buy myself a new shirt when that happens too. And maybe drink a glass of sparkling grape juice (what I like to do to feel fancy). ;)
