How am I going to solve this puzzle?
The loss of Jenny’s parents, Joseph’s plot, the WIA, and Jenny visions. I was able to figure this out before and put it into a story and I can do it again… I think
I know that I’m just nervous the idea of a rewrite of a story that I thought was pretty solid except for maybe a few holes here or there. I’m also nervous about the first draft and sending it into my editor. I want her to like the changes, but I’m definitely scared that, well… I’m not going to even go there.
This is the side effects of being a writer you over think and sometimes you get nervous; because you over think and it just goes on and on.
What usually gets me out of that is my positive attitude; that and the Straw-ber-Rita I’m drinking.
I’m really going to have to think this out.
I’m also probably going to talk about this until I hear the news so good luck to you people and I apologize if I get obsessed with this whole first draft thing. I’ve just never been this close to my dream and yet still a ways away from it as well.
