For those of you who haven't had the privilege of getting one of my MANY book 2 related emails and/or IMs, I thought I'd put together this visual representation--via lolcat (yes, really!)--of some of the roller coaster highs and lows I've been riding as I battle through this bad boy.
Most days start out like this:
I love my job--and I'm VERY lucky to have it. But yeah... it's also WORK. And no matter how much I may wish I could leave cupcakes out and the magic writing elves would finish the book for me:
So I grab some caffeine....
(and for the record, no, I am NOT taking caffeine pills. Those would make me bounce off the walls)
And then I get to work.
(Um... I couldn't find a work related lolcat, so...BATMAN!)
And I work. And work some more. Until the plot takes yet another unexpected turn and I realize:
So I track down one of my CPs:
and they SOMEHOW talk me through
(and then probably email each other making fun of me)
And then...all of a sudden the pieces come together (usually right before bed and/or in the shower) and...
All of which leads to those moments where even though...
Threads and plotlines and ideas come together and I reread my words at the end of the day and it's just...
So I'm powering through. It's hard and I can't WAIT to be done. But bring it on Book 2!
