I just wanted to share that revision is the worst part. There are a couple of reasons.
These words have come out of my mouth in the last few days.
“I ******* wrote that?”
“Oh my GOD, I just want to play one more game of World of Tanks, THEN I’ll get started.”
“This is why I didn’t work in an office before. I hate paperwork.”
“Christ, Jake! Stop it!” (My dog gassed me out of the room. Seriously.)
I am working on chapter 6 at the moment, printing the chapters as I think they’re done. I’m putting them in a nice binder, ready to hand them off to a beta reader once I have completed the entire book. I am not looking forward to chapters 12-30, that’s where the most loose ends and unfulfilled subplots are going to be, and probably the most work.
I do love telling a good story, though, so I’m back to it. It’s 10:30, I have a good 5-6 hours in me tonight.
