Trying – and massively failing – to look cute for your editor, won’t work, Susan. (did you check if she’s allergic to cats?!?!)
Today’s surprising fact, is more of the ‘And now I’m a gibbering wreck’, day, because my ed returns from her annual break today. Picture the scene as she cheerfully logs on, in full expectation of, yes, a full manuscript from yours truly, only to discover that there ain’t one.
I’m not being deliberately slow with my writing, it’s just that I discovered I’d left out a scene (please don’t ask why as I don’t have a Scoob) – thankfully, I found it on another draft and was able to put it back in – but at the expense of getting in to a muddle with what I had already said, what I should say, and what I might want to say. And putting all that right takes time.
Another hunky-chunky to soothe our frazzled nerves…
Yep. We’re all frazzled about something.
And yes, I make mistakes – hundreds of them. And yes again, I get revisions – loads of them. Anyone who says they sail through life – or writing – without a hitch, is a) more insecure than you and me, so has to big themselves up, and actually needs our support, or b) has undergone a medical reality-avoidance procedure.
Basically, they’re just kidding themselves, so take heart.
Will this pic help?
We can have as many hot men up here as we like, ladies, so I’m not going to stint!
Don’t let anyone ever make you feel like you’re not keeping up, or your kids aren’t keeping up. Believe me, we’re all the same little ducks, paddling like crazy beneath the water in an attempt to keep up – it’s just that some of us (not me, I hasten to add!!!) manage to look a little more ‘swan-like’ while we’re doing it.
Love to all, from a slightly more frazzled than usual, Susan.
Well, I really don’t like to let anyone down, but sometimes life gets the better of me too 🤓
But not for long 💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃
