Do you ever have one of those tasks that you just need to dive in to, but it feels like a huge task, so you put it off for as long as you can until the guilt gets you?
Mmhmm. Me too.
Sara and I have been brainstorming about our book and I need to make some changes to the framework–basically rework the beginning of the book. I do know that doing this will make the book stronger and will overall be something I’m glad about it. Right now, it feels like a big task. Of course, I love to write, so big task or not, it will be something I enjoy. But it needs to turn out just right, and that’s a little inundating.
I go through this with authors all the time. Early on in the publishing process, usually right after an author has sent me a completed first draft, I go through it and then type up a letter explaining any need for rewrites or added material or cuts or more development–yada yada yada. Then the author is given a few weeks to make changes or whatever. I’m not on a timeframe since we’re still at the proposal stage, but still, I need to dive in pretty soon or this book will never get finished.
Anyway, so Kels and Scott came over for dinner tonight and that was super fun. I love it when they come over. Jeff and I had spent the entire day decorating his new office. My husband works for Edward Jones and he’s taking over a new office, starting next week. Very cool. His office looks great. 🙂
OK. I hear a certain baby girl I know crying. Time to run.
