I am over myself now. The bruises on my ego have changed to raw red-purple to putrid yellow. I know, I know…I’ve been told a million times I have to harden up and accept criticism, knowing it’s not a personal attack. I do know that, of course, but there are ways and there are ways. Enough! I have at least started my 2nd draft, which is actually a rewrite, and now have, er…12 days to get it done.
So, What am I doing here? Well, I promised to have Chapter 2 of Sinbad up on the 30th of last month and haven’t done that yet. Am doing it now. I want to ask you if I should put up the chapters more quickly, say every 2 weeks? And please make some (helpful) comments.
I am reading Ovid’s “The Art of Love” (in translation, of course), which sounds very highbrow but is actually a hoot. I will discuss it more fully after I’ve finished Draft 2. Have to go to work on it now, so be hearing from you.
Oh, forgot to say a big thank you to all who sent me words of encouragement. I really did appreciate it. Love you all.
