Well, here it is—the last week of February, and I'm still attempting to finish revisions. In theory, they were supposed be done at the end of January. As you've probably figured out by now, they were not.
I'm not sure why, but I feel this gif coming on...
And though I have crossed multiple items (well, like, ten things, anyway) off the "Unresolved Shit Deemed Too Much Work To Deal With The First Time Around" list, I continue to feel as though I am not making much progress. Or, you know, any progress.
It could just be that no matter how many things I cross off the list, there are still two big, big challenges looming...
1. Correct that one character's really wonky arc. I don't know what you were smoking when you wrote her scenes, but stop it and fix her story line. Fix it how, I have no idea, but you know, think of something, okay?
2. You know what, I think I may need to rewrite the ending to the whole damn thing. Rewrite it to what, I have no idea, but you know, think of something.
So that and about twenty other things, is what I'm focusing on this week. I'm not particularly pleased that I'm so far behind, but there's nothing to do for it except keep on working on those 22 (or so. I know I left something out.) items because I'd really, really like to be able to wrap this damn thing up this week.
22 items. 7 days.
Sounds like the tagline of the most boring action movie ever.
But it is my mission. Should I choose to accept it. Which, you know, I do because what else would I do?
So...22 items in seven days. That's only, like, 3.14 items a day. Totally doable. That's Pi. Which is similar to cake (in that I can't bake either one)...which means something is easy (unless it's me in a kitchen attempting to bake anything...).
Still...I imagine I shall be spending a lot of time in the very near future looking like this:
Followed by this:
Best get to it, then.
What's on your agenda this week?
