I should be at the halfway point of the novel I’m working on tomorrow, and I’m pretty excited about it. I like to set little checkpoints for myself, and writing or editing, the halfway mark is the one I like to get to the most. It feels like it’s all downhill from there.
I’m hoping this novel, Awake, will be the first one I publish. It’s not the first one I’ve written this year, but the first is so sloppy I don’t know when, if ever, I will get to cleaning it up. Sometimes I think about chalking it up to a practice exercise, but I think I will end up editing and publishing it at some point.
Write write write, edit edit edit. It’s a slog, but a rewarding one.
