Three steps forward, two steps back, but at least I haven't stopped moving.
My goal last week was to get my first five chapters revised so I could get them to my critique partner and start working on my synopsis and query letter.
Well, I got 4 out of 5 chapters revised but I have to rework a love scene before I can finish. I'll try to get that done today so that while I'm running the mail route this week, I can be thinking about my synopsis and query letter.
I mustn't stop this week just because I have to work, have to learn to accomplish small pieces of the larger goal, especially when it gets down to the uncomfortable, unfun stuff like revision.
