The problem with falling terribly behind, (not opening word file since February…), in a writing project, is for me at least, that means you have to go back and reread everything you’ve already written. Which took me three days. I’m caught up and starting to slowly work away at my current story, this one takes the record, it has never taken me this long to finish a book. Part of me feels like I need to pressure myself to make this The Single Greatest Thing I Have Ever Written, and while I do think it is pulling together nicely, I have accepted that it won’t be perfect. And I am ok with that.
Part of the reason this book has taken so long is that I’ve gone through phases of ‘why am I writing this? Is this a good use of my time? Am I being a good steward of my free time by working away at this story?’. I don’t need to write or I will explode, I’m not that kind of writer, but I do need to create. And this seems to be the outlet I am supposed to use. So, I will finish this book. Eventually.
Quick edit….here is my official Guardians of the Galaxy review on GQKidz
