Insecure Writer's Support Group

Here we are, the first Wednesday in June which means it's time for IWSG

Co-hosts for today's post are  M. Pax, Tracy Jo, Patricia Lynne, Rachna Chhabria, Feather Stone, and Randi Lee

I'm really excited for June. Well, maybe excited is the wrong word. June is the first month in a while where I'll be able to feel like I can breath again.

My semester is over, which means no more homework until July (except for my critical thesis presentation. I have to work on that and have it ready to go for my presentation in early July.) So because the semester is over, it means I don't have to work on more than one manuscript at a time. Which means I can completely focus on my sequel. Which also means I will be pulling out all the stops on it this month and pumping through it as hard and as fast as I can.

Finishing it is the goal. And by goal, I mean THIS IS A THING I MUST DO. Preferably finishing it as fast as possible so I can immediately jump into the revisions I know it desperately needs. The first 80 pages need to be pretty much rewritten. I mean, not from scratch, but my MC completely changed after that, as did a villain, as did her motivations and goals, so all existing scenes need to be changed to reflect those changes, though the bones of the scenes, I think, can stay.

So, yeah. I mean, maybe I should be worried about the amount of work I'm facing, and I am a bit worried, but mostly, it looks easier from where I'm standing since I've been facing this work for a few months now, it's just that before I also had schoolwork to accomplish as well.

Anyway, that's what's up with me. How about you?

No worries! It's your only project. Look at all you have juggled and accomplished this past year. You'll get it done.

You can do it. And if you're in doubt, turn to the revision song--at least that's what I think Daft Punk is singing about in Harder Better FAster Stronger. As for me, I've started construction! Yay! We've already torn out walls and ceilings, now on to flooring and the rest of the ceilings!

I've watched you grow as an author for several years so I know you always finish what you set out to do. You'll be fine.

Me? I'm still suffering with my maimed hand. Thankfully, the infection is under control now. And I've become adept at being one-handed. :)

Revisions can be a major overhaul, but they're so worth it in the end. I do love editing, polishing, making my work the best it can be!

There's never enough time, right? But congrats on finishing another semester.
