I had a realization the other day that one of the hardest things about starting a new project, is switching my mindset from revising back to being creative again. I know it will happen, but writing those first couple thousand words are always painful. Things don't flow right away, even though I want them to.
I remember I had this problem with Glimpse. It took me a few days to start feeling the book. Once I hit some unplanned action at the end of chapter one, though, the book suddenly came to life.
I'm hoping the same will happen with Break Free. Right now, it's pissing me off. But I know I'll be hitting a lot of action pretty soon and I'm sure that will help zazz things up.
I just think it takes some excitement in the draft to fully and finally shake off the revising mindset, which we all know is less creative than actually writing.
What about you? Does it take you some time to warm up to a new draft? To shake off the doldrums of revisions?
