I can’t believe how much I’m loving my manuscript right now. My editing remains consistent so I’m steadily working my way through the book – I’m in the last quarter.
Before I began editing, I had this mental image of my manuscript as being almost salvageable. I now realise that not only was that my procrastination talking, I was completely wrong.
The upside of my procrastination (I can only see an upside now that i’ve overcome it…..) is that I’d rested the MS for so long I’d forgotten a lot of the detail. So this morning as i tapped away on the train, i actually burst out laughing. That’s gotta be a good thing huh?
I guess what i’m trying to say is….my best tip for overcoming writers block is to schedule writing into your day. Pick a time that suits you and work at that time – for a designated period. Then put your work away and come back the next day and chip away a bit more. It’s amazing how much those little sessions add up.
I’ve fallen back in love with writing. It’s wicked!
