Some writers use this time to unwind, sit back and enjoy the aftermath of their hard work, before they dig into their next project.
Which is exactly what I did...for two days. During which time I realized the following:
1: Daytime TV sucks.
2: My living room patio has 25 blinds, a strangely uneven and highly unsettling number.
3: The suggestion: take a nice, long walk, no longer sounds like an oxymoronic joke to me.
4: Carrie should've ended up with Aidan, not Big.
When I felt I'd punished myself long enough with a writing break, I jumped back into Project X and finished up the first readable draft. Now, while Project X is in the hands of Reader #1, my husband, I'm dedicating all my time to Sapphire #4, tentatively titled: Sacrificing Sapphire.
