|I'm THIS close!|
How is that, that you can be done and not done? I've had a few other examples in life, but most of them are surprises:
I wrote and defended my master's thesis... turned it in... got a grade... and then I had to make a few freaking CHANGES! Really hard when you know you've ALREADY gotten an A to address changes before they allow you to be DONE. Isn't an A done?
Man, if these aren't an exercise in 'holy crap, you mean I'm not done yet' this is it... and I refer here to BOTH the scientific manuscripts I do professionally and the fiction manuscripts I do... erm... professionally.... But this is more about LONG TERM PROCESS.
So what the Heck do I do about this thing with the first drafts? I mean all the hiccups to DONE... okay FINE... but I just am not sure what to do with hiccups on the way to first draft... It's not the beginning of the end... that's the trouble... it's the end of the beginning, and it is supposed to go... erm... over the cliff all at once... or something...
Ah, well... Hopefully it will be DONE DONE, by the end of the month, and in the MEANTIME, I've gotten back to typing up my Garden Cozy that I begin editing on July 1, if not sooner... (best to have it in word before the edit... process just goes more smoothly.
In the MEANTIME... some NEWS to share:
blogged about it here.
You know how I'm a Harry Dolan freak, yes? Freaky groupee annallat... I managed to get an ARC for his second book, Very Bad Men, and will post my review July 6th , (one day before it's out) and then will post an interview with Harry July 16th. (the day before his Ann Arbor Nicola's reading... Nicola's is our last remaining Indie Book Store and I am going with my boss, as she gave me his first book—I wanted it anyway, but you know how broke I always am)
I hope you all have a great week!
