I've decided...I'm going to query my book on October 1st. That means in one month, I need to let my book go. I've sat on it for close to two years and at some point it needs to be released before I can make it better. I'm editing page 200 out of 260. A month is a bit of a push but it's time. Creativity and art is a product as much as it is a process so I need to take the first step in getting it out there even though it's scary and may bruise my ego.
Through writing this book, I've learned so much about what it means to be a writer and what it takes to write. To sum it up, I sent this text to my sister: "I thought writing was tripping on acid, sorcery, a moment of divine inspiration. It is mostly just sitting in a chair, writing. Very unsexy."
I'll leave you with that and see you after Labor Day weekend!
