So, this is the first day of my new life at home. I am no longer working full time in an office. I’ve switched to part-time working from home. I am now part writer, part stay-at-home dad, and part working stiff. Hope my son goes easy on me! The toughest part will be arranging my day so I can still get as much writing done as possible. Have a long road ahead of me with all these projects! Wish me luck.
Finishing that first draft was a total relief and accomplishment but now that the edits have begun I cringe at what I wrote a year ago. A lot is getting lopped off during the second draft for good reason. There is a whole new level of satisfaction in trimming out the crap that I puked onto the page just to get to the next chapter. I’m optimistic.
