After months of procrastination, I finally submitted my novella for edits. I cannot describe the feeling I had as soon as I hit the ‘Submit’ button. It felt akin to turning in an exam knowing you have some extra time to cram in some additional information. And now that I have turned it in, I think of all things I should have put in it.
The good thing is that I get a chance to do that as soon as it’s back. Right now I have to take some time away from it and work on my dusty novel. My deadline of July 1st has come and gone. And August 1st will be unrealistic. Now I hope to finalize it by September 1st.
I am behind schedule but I am satisfied that I am making some measure of progress. I believe I have the worst procrastination in the world. Once I start working on something I keep at it, for the most part, until something pretty gets my attention and the cycle of procrastination starts all over again.
Now I hope to focus my attentions on my novel and refuse to be distracted by shiny pretty things. We’ll find out by September 1st if I’m successful or not.
