pause

I have been a bit distracted and uninspired with blogging lately, so rather than bore everyone with posting for the sake of posting, I took some time off.

There are a number of posts I want to write soon, but I need to take this week to work on revising my book proposal, so I may go quiet for a bit.

It's odd working on the sample chapter, because it feels like I'm reliving the experiences with TV Tyler and Arty Adam as I write about them, except that I'm fleshing them out and going into greater detail and depth, so the memory is heightened, more acute. There's kind of a sense that in order to write well about it, I have to feel all of it over again, which can be draining considering the time compression. Also, even though all of this happened six months ago, it feels like it was years ago. I pass the block where TV Tyler and Film Felix live nearly every day and sometimes I still cringe at our last awkward encounter, at how frustrating and unsatisfying things became with both of them.

It'll be a relief to finish writing this chapter...

It would be hard for for me to write a book bc I am so not a reviser. I would get bored and move on. Good for you for keeping up with it!

Good luck with your chapter.

The blog world will still be here long after you have finished your book. Plus, I'm sure I'm not the only one who will love to hear more about your process of writing the book once it's complete. Good luck!
