This month I've been revising and editing the ms that my agent declined on. I've come to the end and still feel more work needs to be done. Okay, do all writers do this---keep going back through you ms and rewording, changing little things. One day I actually read and reread the same sentence and paragraph over and over. I didn't like it. I couldn't get it to mesh. Well that took a half hour. Then the ending. OMGoodness. I must've reworked that a zillion times. I needed to get it right, to make sense. It's a contemporary ya, murder mystery with elements of young love.
Now it's being critiqued. And then off to my agent.
My neurosis is just recently soaking into my brain. And it comes in the form of a writers block. I've been editing sooo much lately between getting Tallas ready for print, and this new wip, that I can't think of a new tale. Nodda! I've started three new stories and stopped. There's nothing there.
And then book sales...ARGH! Not much happening there either.
