We got back last night and I've been in a whirlwind of washing clothes and walking dogs and weeding gardens and feeling...strange. Like you do after a trip. Or I should say, like I do after a trip. Discombobulated.
And I have things to do, people to see, a life to pick up and start going at again.
And so, my dear readers, I thought I would do a little thinking-out-blog.
And what do I need to think about? I need to go back at my manuscript which I haven't looked at, not really, for about ten days. I can find where I'm at because I have my wonderful board with seven sheets of the beats and I have checked the chapters I've been through. I'm at page 190 of 303. So two thirds done this particular revision. Seems good but as you may recall this is where it gets a little fuzzinating - at the bottom of the third quarter or the beginning of the third period depending on which game you think I'm playing.
I think how I'll do this is give myself two hours a day until it is done. I imagine that will be about two weeks worth of work. Novel wise that is. I'm also going to send off 'The Rock Walker' again and have some work to get that going.
How do you ease back into work after a time away? Any suggestions or do you just jump in and start swimming?
