Truth: I got really grumpy at my novel.
Like so much that I haven't touched in almost a month.
It's SLOW work, and I feel frustrated trying to balance the "right" way to "write" a novel, so that someone will want to publish it, with the story that I want to tell how I freaking want to tell it.
So. I'm taking a step back from it. I need to let it be. I was trying to force it, and it was coming out garbage.
I have a new idea that is percolating. It's going to be fun. Publishable? Maybe. But I feel that spark of inspiration. I haven't been feeling that lately.
Over and out.
