Well Meaning Pal ( WMP) “Hey Kathy, how’s the new book coming along?”
Me: Look at this thing I did on Instagram.
WMP: So the new book..?
Me: Yeah, sorry, I’ve got fencing training, and I don’t want to be late…
WMP: I heard it was much easier to get a second book published.
Me: WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO MUCH?
Thank god for writer friends on Facebook reminding me I am not alone. I love you. You are all fab. And hey, it’s not QUITE that bad (now.)
Last week I wanted to put a brick through my computer.
Now, I’ve just started on the fourth draft, the one where I tweak all the relationships, and you know what? It’s not rubbish. I like it. Some of it, I really like.
Of course that’s today. Tomorrow I might be reaching for the brick…
