~ JAMES A. MICHENER
I finished my SFD about 6:30 last night. After pacing (and yeah, flexing a little), I finished printing it out about 9:30.
Now what? My last two attempts are stuck in the proverbial bottomless drawer.
This one is different.
I have about twelve gazillion craft books and workshop notes on editing. Too much data.
The next few days are going to be focused on researching this next giant step. That delay will help with the "settling/stewing" thing I've heard about so often.
Nothing like accomplishing something by doing nothing.
CR: Relentless by Dean Koontz.
Will be crawling through Margie Lawson's Deep Editing system, Chris Roerden's Don't Murder Your Mystery, Browne and King's Self-Editing for Fiction Writers, The Fire in Fiction by Donald Maass, with Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird standing by to make me feel better.
It's all better with friends.
