At the moment I am desperately trying to distract myself for editing.
Why? You make think. Surely editing is a good thing. And yes, normally is it. But I’m trying to give myself a cooling off period between the first draft and the start of edits, just so that I:
a) can look at it with fresh eyes
b) don’t get sick of it
c) actually focus on edits
But it’s been nearly two weeks and my patience is wearing very, very thin. I’ve been attempting to distract myself by various means: plotting book two, reading, playing with (and breaking) my website, helping friends, but it’s not working… all I can think about is editing.
Please send your best suggestions to help distract me for another few days at least. If not, I might have to resort to actually doing housework, and nobody wants that!
