Ah, the one recurring frustration in my life.
As in, never enough of it. As in I desperately need to brainstorm revisions to my novel based on the feedback I just got, and I can't get a chunk of time carved out to do it.
Some aspects of the novel process can be done in short snatches of time--the pre-novel brainstorming, the actual drafts and revisions, etc. I've made much progress over the years simply by utilizing my two 15-minute breaks at work each day for writing time.
But when you are brainstorming changes you need to make to your plot or characters for revisions, a 15 minute dash just doesn't cut it. Or maybe it does for other people. Maybe my brain just functions too slowly compared to other people.
All I know is I need to have several hours of time to call my own and get it done, but haven't been able to find it in the last week and a half.
So while everyone else is thinking back yard barbecues and gatherings of friends and family for the 4th, I'm eagerly thinking of the holiday weekend too--except in my case I'm looking forward to hunkering down with my novel and burning up some gray matter as I ponder the revisions that need to take place.
May this next three days pass by quickly! 8-)
