Do you have any idea how much time it takes to type in 92k-worth of novel revisions? Somewhere in the neighborhood of 13 hours. How do I know this? Because I did the entire type-in on the werewolf story this weekend! It. Is. Finished!
My legs and back ached from hunching over my keyboard. My eyes were crossed and bloodshot. My wrists hurt. I had finger cramps. But finally, at almost 11 p.m. last night, I finished it. Running spellcheck was almost anti-climatic.
I’ve been so focused on this revision for the past five months, that now, with it done, the sensation of not having anything to work on has me feeling a little lost. (Okay, to be honest, I’m feeling like one of the survivors of Oceanic flight 815, but that’s another story.) I don’t do well with nothing to do.
Fortunately, I have a query letter and a synopsis to write. And beta readers to get the story out to. And a partially written novel to finish. And that other revision I’m in the midst of…
There’s no rest for the wicked…or is that the weary?
