I’ve had a little unplanned break, so here’s a wee update:
The first draft of Littlewolf was completed a few weeks ago and I immediately began the editing process. But I realised that there was still a lot more that I could add to the story. So I began a sort of ‘re-write’, from beginning to end, adding and editing as I go. But as I started, I began to feel that I was completely burnt out. And I had to stop for what has turned into two weeks!
My energy levels are usually topsy-turvy and I can never predict how I’m going to feeling day to day. But the last few weeks have been terrible and I just haven’t been able to get any work done at all. It’s all very frustrating.
I’ll probably take the remainder of this week off and begin afresh on Monday! It has put my plans a little behind schedule, but I have to try and accept it. I’ve been so organised lately, that I’m just constantly frustrated at myself for being tired. Sounds crazy really.
But the second draft of Littlewolf is underway! And I’m very excited about the additions I have in mind. A lot of TLC is going into this story and I’m going to take my time with the second draft. I’m just happy to finally have the first draft complete, after 2 years of putting it off.
So I apologise for the lack of update, but everything will be back to normal next week! I have allowed myself two weeks of R&R and procrastination, so now it’s time for the productivity to continue!
See you all in the New Year, I hope you have a merry one. x
