So, as I previously stated the first draft of the YA novel I’m currently working on is done and dusted and I’m leaving it to breathe for a couple of days, maybe a week …. Only I’m not. I just can’t do it, the urge to get going on the second draft is just too much for me and I caved in after only a mere 12 hours! As a teenager I used to be so good at doing absolutely nothing, I mean I really had that particular skill down to a fine art. Now, at 23 I’m finding it totally and utterly impossible to remember how I managed it.
I tried reading two new books (see above), as my first means of distracting myself from that oh-so enticing manuscript. Alas, on second thought this may have not been the brightest idea however, my attention was distracted for longer than during my second choice on a wet and windy New Years day. Television. When did it get so bad?
So you see I had no option but to crack on with my second draft, and crack on I have. Ten chapters in and there’s a lot of work still to do but it gives me hope that 2014 might just be the year I start achieving my goals.
