It's starting again. I'm pretty sure my brain likes to sabotage me. I WANT to edit and revise Normal, I really do. I believe in it and would like to subject it to the knowing betas for advice and assistance.
I will query for agent representation for it.
In the meantime, when I should be editing and getting it ready for betas, I keep having these new book ideas hit me. I mean wake me from deep sleep several nights in a row because I'm ignoring them.
I spent two days making notes, writing dialogue, character descriptions, plotting and researching idea #1. I gave myself that time justifying that I needed to get as much of my inspiration down on paper while the feeling was with me, and that I'd just jump right back into editing.
Then shiny new idea #2 hit. I ignored it. SNI #2 came after me with a baseball bat. I hid in the closet with a flashlight and held my editing pencil tight (and wrote bad poetry apparently) while I forced myself through more pages. SNI#2 came after me with a scythe. I ran screaming outside in slow motion, flailing my arms and screaming for help but SNI#2 chased after me.
I tripped I fell and SNI#2 stood over me with a menacing smile. I held up my hands and begged, "I'll do it, just stop chasing me." then rolled onto my side in tears. SNI#2 laughed a maniacal BWAH HA HA HA.
I spent two days planning SNI#2.
They are rather pushy, violent little things. I can't wait to get to know them better.
