The book is getting written, and it will be a good book, and that is what matters, not my workaholic tendencies.
I have ideas for the rest of this scene, and the next few scenes... and I'm liking the words I'm writing... but actually getting them on paper, currently, is a slow and picky process.
I think I'm okay with that. I have four months to write this book; I can afford slow and steady and meticulous. As long as it's sufficiently steady to make up for the slow and meticulous part.
Honor your process, boys and girls. Even though it's bound to be different every book. Books do not get written by ignoring what works to get them writ in the service of what we think we should be doing.
And word of a nice sub rights sale today, which will (among other things) pay for the replacement laptop that's becoming less and less optional. I'll tell you more about it once contracts are signed.
