I’ve been busy writing my book for the last couple of months which has negatively impacted my blogging schedule. I’ve managed to write this regular article each week but nothing much else – hopefully that will change soon.
Excitement and Boredom
I loved the writing process – surfing the wave of excitement curling into despair and then gently rolling to the end. But I wasn’t prepare for the odd combination of emotions that editing would generate – excitement and boredom. Now those two emotions aren’t normal bed mates so it feels a little uncomfortable. I’m excited because the process is almost at the end and publication is imminent but the boredom of editing is brain numbing. Now don’t get me wrong I love reading the manuscript to check for errors but it’s the detailed computer work that is deadly. Checking consistent spacing, typeface, headlines format etc – oh my gosh it’s draining. Anyway I’ve spent the sunny days editing in my local church garden (no I’m not talking graveyard – it’s a garden for the church cafe), so I’m hoping the manuscript got a little blessing – every little helps as a UK supermarket chain is prone to say.
