This morning I sent The Locked Room to the two lovely people who’s volunteered to beta read it for me.
*cue the scary music*
But to be honest I’m pretty happy right now to be rid of the damn thing. I spent a ridiculous amount of time this past week editing it, especially since I received the last part from one of my critique partners on Thursday. I’ve edited, and edited, and edited… and right now I hate every word of it. And after being bent over the computer for ten hours yesterday, I can’t see any of my mistakes any longer.
So I’m happy to take a step back and concentrate on my other projects, and let the betas go over my words with a fine tooth comb.
But for today I’ll just be lazy. Recharge the batteries and rest. Because to be honest, I’m so mentally exhausted I can’t even think straight. I have a hard time even writing this short blog post, or replying to e-mails — and that says a lot.
So I’ll leave you with this. At 4 AM when I was trying to sleep, my brain had other ideas —and this is the result. High quality, middle-of-the-night-poetry. Enjoy 🙂
