As you may have read in my last few blogs I’ve had problems concentrating on my revisions of the first draft. At first I thought I had lost my ability to write, which stressed me to no end. What I didn’t want to admit was that I worried about my daughter being in Sierra Leone, supervising Ebola health workers for two months.
Since she came back – in fine health – I discovered that I could write after all. All of a sudden, doing the revisions was a breeze and I enjoyed doing them. Maybe too much, looking at all the changes I’d made. Anyway, I just sent the manuscript off to my editor. We’ll go over the changes in a few days, and then I’ll be starting the second draft.
Most likely I’ll need to write a third draft and a fourth, but in the meantime my mind is running ahead, looking for what to write about next, bouncing ideas around, even when I’m asleep. It’s an interesting world.
