Anybody else out there wrassling with a revision? Fighting a first draft? Find good company — and encouragement! — over at CuppaJolie.
Jolie’s into word counts right now; since I’m revising (I hope for the last time!) my goal is to stay in my chair, even when I’m frustrated. Especially when I’m frustrated. I’ve learned that about myself — that I have to stay put sometimes to experience a breakthrough. So no organizing the spice drawer, sorting clothes for the Goodwill or even cleaning my office until I’m done.
