I Need To Get Off My Ass


I've been using excuse after excuse to not sit down and fix the errors I've found in my MS. I want to just keep plugging away forward, but I can't do that until I go back and fix some critical errors. It's going to completely change the pacing, and my word count, so it's nothing something I can make a note about and go back and change later. I don't want to rewrite yet, so I keep putting it off.

So, this is basically a mental self butt kicking to get off my lazy ass and get to work.

I won't have the first rough draft done by the end of January like I wanted, but I am still on track to get a real first draft done before AJ goes in for his surgery - and that's important because it's my main goal. I can handle missing a few short term goals, as long as I make the longterm one.

Writing is a marathon, and not a sprint.

By this time next week, I want to have all of the rewriting done, and be ready to plunge ahead once again.
