Thursday and Friday turned out to be the worst. Needless to say, I haven't gotten anywhere with my editing goals.
Okay, so I'm behind a week. I am not letting that completely derail my plans. I already have taken way longer than I planned. To be honest, I'm a little embarrassed about the agent I originally pitched to way back in...Oct 2013!! She was right. She knew I wasn't as close to completion as I thought I was. But a lot has happened in that time. My book has grown, improved and even changed from 'Going for Gold' to 'Tumble Into Me.' I just hope it will be worth the wait.
So, on the notion that I am not letting this one week set back throw me off focus, I've set new goals and still intend to have sent out my first query letters by the end of this month. That gives me...two weeks? No problem. I will make use of both my half shift at work on Wednesday as well as my day off on Friday to catch up to where I should have been by last night. This will leave me with Sunday to read my story from beginning to end out loud, to catch any odd sounding, awkward flowing statements.
As I push forward, onward and upward as they say, I feel a stir of excitement within, and yet no nervousness! Which, I will take as a good sign. A sign that I'm ready for this long awaited next step along this path to publication. It's time! :)
And, much like we would if taking our first bicycle ride, or perhaps our first dive, I'll hold my breath, and let go!
