I've been in a bit of a funk lately. I think it's directly related to finishing the WIP.
At first it's fun to have it done and getting some free time again. But then, the free time just sits there and I know I should fill it with things (like cleaning, finishing up a final revision on a short story, or better yet, starting a new WIP) but every time I think about doing one of those things, or something else, I just think, meh I don't want to do that.
Hence, a funk.
I don't really know the cure for a funk. I suspect its mostly just time. And actually yesterday I did a bunch of cleaning all before 9:30AM so I think that may have erased much of the funk.
On the plus side, I've only got to really sit through another week before I can break open Foxfire and get to work on revisions!
On the negative side, I actually have to read the manuscript before I can start editing. Boo.
Not because I don't want to read it, just because that will take up some more time before I can start on the edits.
Unless you think I could start reading the manuscript a few days before...so then I can start the edits exactly 4 weeks after I finished it...
Of course all of this is just based on a timeline I made up, so I suppose I can also make up my own rules.
So how does everyone else get themselves out of a funk?
