Thursday Thoughts: Universal Nothing

Sometimes, things are hard. Sometimes, it’s hard to see beyond what’s mucking up processes in my head. This dang revision is driving me to the brink. I’ve spent a hard week staring at my monitor. A week, and I haven’t even hit the end of Chapter 1. I know what my editor wants. I understand why. But part of me is rebelling because this revision is changing the heroine. I like her the way she is but…I have to share her so…she’s going to…I don’t know. Grow up a little. Gain some sophistication. She tells me it’s okay but Iffy is fighting me every step of the way. Iffy, in all her glorious Muse-ness has dug in her toes. So…the Universe is reminding me that nothing is that hard.

Just a reminder, Silver, in case you forgot, in case you’ve thought otherwise, or in case you never knew…

There is nothing you can’t have.

There is nothing you can’t do.

There is nothing you can’t be.

Okay?
The Universe

Silver, nothing means nothing.

So…I’m going to do nothing today. Which means I’m going to do quite a bit of having, doing, and being. And I mean it. Right after I get another cup of coffee. What will you do today?

  1. At this point, Iffy needs to go sit in a corner and mind her manners, because this is business. The fun and creative part is over on this one. She’s got plenty of time to run free on other books, but not now. Give her an all-day sucker and a thousand piece jigsaw puzzle.

    I got through 58 pages of editing this morning and I went to Wallyworld for groceries. Another 40 pages to go. Then the edit notes, then the crutch words, then the formatting. Today, tomorrow, and Saturday. :collapses: Not sure if I can get all that done in the timeframe, but I’m giving it the old college try. (Well, maybe harder than a college try. I didn’t try very hard in college.) ;o)

    Now, go. You’ve got this. You’re a freakin’ awesome chick who kicks book butt.

      Yeah, I know. But gotta say, my heart’s not really in this one. Ah well. Business is business and tomorrow I shall kick butt and take names. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! 😛

      And you got SU. Whenever it gets done. Don’t kill yourself. And then go fishing! 😉

Got something to say?
