I’m working my way through my revisions – but very, very slowly. I keep thinking, “Yes, I need to do that, only right now I need to do this, so I’ll get to the revision tomorrow.” But you know what? Tomorrow never comes.
So that’s my insecurity this month. It’s been nearly 2 weeks since I’ve opened the WIP file. I have a critique group waiting for my next chapter, and nothing yet to show them. I keep waiting for the “right time” to work on it, so it keeps getting pushed off.
This is especially baffling, because my critique group has been very helpful – lots of good suggestions on everything from character arc to grammar. They’re supportive and kind while still being focused on changes I need to make. I’m not worried or afraid of what will happen. I’m just keep getting caught up in other day-to-day stuff and shuffling this off to tomorrow.
And tomorrow never comes.
Many thanks to the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (boy, do I need it) and this month’s co-hosts: Megan Morgan, Chris Votey, Viola Fury, Christine Rains, Madeline Mora-Summonte, L.G. Keltner, Rachna Chhabria, and Patricia Lynne!
