If you read yesterday’s post, you will know that I was having a bit of motivational trouble with something Al wanted to do. I think I spent about twenty hours on this chapter, trying a few things until I pulled an element from each “version” and melded it into something I liked. Al is Al. Rachel is Rachel. It’s all good. It was an unexpected slowdown that I tend to get impatient with myself with. I’m getting better at taking them in stride and playing with them to see what happens.
And the payoff? OMGOSH! Once I got past this point, I fell in love with this book all over again. I wrote the rough draft almost a year ago, and then set it aside like I always do, already knowing that this was going to be one of my favorites, but then I get back into it, and it’s like, wow. I was going to quit yesterday at about six, but I got caught up and didn’t stumble out of my office until almost eight. Yeah. It’s got a big rollercoaster end. I’m back to the happy endings, baby! Whoo-hoo!
This was not meant to be a teaser, but somedays are better than others.
Have a great weekend, guys, and see you Monday!
